THIS IS MY ART GROWTH PROGRESS.
And they go from like pretty decent to like fucking you can’t even fucking tell if that is a drawing. A lot of the time within a span of like 3-4 years.
and like THEY are stunning and they draw LIKE EVERY DAY to get that good.
and I think about myself and the other people out there that like to draw and want to get better, they just… don’t draw every day. Like. I dunno,
anyways here is a slow progress of me drawing I’ll explain more at the bottom:
This is like 8th or 9th grade? I don’t even know.
This is also probably like 8th or 9th grade. Notice the same shitty pants. Except this time I probably had one of my friend’s who are better at drawing then me next to me and I kept sneaking peeks at their drawing.
I have no idea when this was but it is pretty fucking hilarious.
This is from senior year of high school. Don’t even start on me about it being Hetalia. I fucking know right? BUT HEY THAT IS A LOT FUCKING BETTER THEN THOSE OTHER ONES RIGHT?!?!?! YOU WANNA KNOW WHY? I started hanging out with other people that could DRAW WELL. (This is important by the end I swear)
I still stand by my shading not being super shitty all things considered okay? But in no ways do I claim to be an A+ drawer.
Okay but moving on to modern stuff yeah
This is from like April? I had people’s facebooks open in front of me ans I was drawing them as apocalypse people.
These pictures are probably fucking huge sorry. Another one where I had the facebook open. BUT LIKE THIS IS IT I improved from my senior year of high school to my senior year of college and THAT REALLY ISN’T A LOT ALRIGHT? Like there are anatomy and perspective issues all over the place. But I am like a sculpture kid and that is okay!!!!
OKAY BUT THIS IS FROM TODAY SITTING ALONE AT A JEWELRY COUNTER! LIKE I DID THAT ON MY OWN.
YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENED? I wENT TO ART SCHOOL FOR 4 YEARS. and was just ABSOLUTELY surrounded by people BETTER THEN ME brilliant BRILLIANT artist. LIKE OMG.
and you know what yes. Getting better at drawing and art takes practice and to get TRUELY good at art or drawing or whatever you choose you should do it every day but also, SURROUND yourself with people BETTER then you. Look at their stuff, FUCK COPY THEIR STUFF (copy do not trace. And never post anything you copied claiming it as your own. This shit is just for practice yo. have some integrity.)
Like artists all over the place copy each other and sometimes the best way to figure out what you need to do is to just copy and copy people better then you. Then you find yourself on your own able to draw like you never thought you could before!
I am pretty sure I lost where I was going. But here you go drawing progress of someone who didn’t practice everyday sometimes didn’t even draw for weeks on a time. But embraced what they could do and surrounded themselves with people better then them. Of course I am still not like amazing I don’t claim to be but I am PROUD of the growth I have made and that is what is most important.
So fucking be PROUD of your growth even if it isn’t as stunning as that person you idolize.
I lost myself again. I am pretty sure I started yammering in like 4 different directions
Moral of the story: I can’t fucking draw hands or feet no matter what.
