hmmm, its been a year and what a year it has been! I was very slow in terms of art for about two months, but I eventually picked it up, especially around June.
heres the good stuff that went down:
-DIGITAL MASTERY! my digital art/coloring skills got way better, i learned how to use my sketches as line art and eventually really got that skill under a real grasp, bringing it to a point where I could use it without holding the pieces back!
-ANATOMY! my anatomy got WAY better, I look at some of the pieces, like the one in february, and i feel less bad about how i draw bodies now, haha
- PRODUCT! actually started finishing pictures! I know the first picture is technically finished, but i feel as though I didn't really learn how to do a full picture until the august-september period. everything before that doesn't seem like something that was really done.
- DESIGNS! finalized designs for all of my characters
-CONSISTENCY! got better at drawing things consistently from picture to picture
-CHARACTER! got better at facial diversity
heres what i need to improve on:
-ANGLES! a lot of my drawings, even full pieces, are head-on and rely on the same positions for characters. i need to change that.
-COMPOSITION! I stick to a lot of boring, uninteresting compositions that don't lead you around the image much at all. that needs to be worked on as well!
-ANATOMY! Though it's improved, I still need to master the figure and grasp more natural and appealing poses. Use more references!
-COLORING! Again, my colors have gotten much better, but I could still stand to bring more vibrancy and mood to my pieces.
-STYLE! Always improve style.
In 2015, I will be graduating, as well as going to art school, so I expect a ton of improvement over the next year! I'm also really impressed by how much my art has changed this year, like wow. EDIT: Cool. a ton of thumbs aren't showing up. I guess that's just what happens. just putting links for the problem pictures!
