Summary of 2011 by LilaeaBluecoat Summary of 2011 by LilaeaBluecoat
Was a little sad to have to leave a couple out (due to the one a month-thing) and sad I had to include a few because I didn't have anything better for that month! :rofl:

Definitely had weaker and stronger months. :nod:

See, the improvement is obvious with this and shows you've been putting the time and effort in, unlike me.:highfive:

Thanks very much Gary. Am rather amazed myself!
You've put time and effort in it loads too! Sometimes things just come to a halt for a bit. :shrug: Doesn't mean that there's no changes in the brain or something like that, that enhances the ability to draw and ability to see. The WIPs I've seen of you very, VERY clearly demonstrated that progress! :glomp:

Thank you! Most of all I'm happy I even thought of trying my hand at drawing in the first place. Otherwise I'd never have this new hobby, let alone learned I can make progress at something else than dance! ;)
Don't worry, there'll be more drawings in 2012. :D

Thanks! Kind of crazy, eh? When I look at that first one, I can hardly believe it's only been such a short period of time! :hug:

Time is so weird though isn't it? Some things seem like forever ago and others the time flies by! I feel exactly like you do, I started drawing, I think 15 months ago now, but it feels like years and years! It's a weird thing :nod: I'm looking forward to seeing what your meme looks like next year, I'm willing to bet AWESOME :la:

Ónly 15 months ago for you? Wow! I'd have figured you had been drawing for years now!!! :jawdrop:
Well there's something to aim for for me! ;)

I'm still just amazed by the fact that I am even áble to draw more than stick figures! I'm excited to find out how far I'll be able to take this! :eager:

No, I wish I had been for years :) I've always been able to draw a bit, but never people and not for 10 years before I joined here :( Then I found deviant art and was too stubborn to give up on being able to draw realism :laughing:

Oh your great! I think you definitely underestimate yourself you know :hug: I'm exactly the same as you, on a learning curve and just hoping I can get better too :dance:

Ah but you did draw before then? That gives you a slight advantage over li'l old me then! Aside from drawing in Kindergarten, and a bit of mandatory things when I was around 12 in school, I didn't. And what I did, never was any good. Wás always very good at those coloring books though, I guess those were my first steps in shading! ;)
Honestly though, judging by what I did as a youngster, no-one would ever say I had a special talent for drawing.
It's likely this was also because all my attention went to dance anyway. Had no need nor desire to focus very much on anything else; I'd found my love/medium!

Maybe I do underestimate myself. I don't know. I find it both hard to judge myself objectively because of my being rather unfamiliar with what I'm doing, and then there's also the factor of my dance-upbringing, where 'good'/'well done' does not exist. It kind of breeds an attitude of always feeling it's never good enough. I suppose that's okay to some extent (because you cán always do better most of the time), but it also makes it hard to observe something you made and try and find the positives first, instead of (figuratively) slapping myself over the head about everything that's wrong.

Yeah, I drew in school and at college when I was a young 'un :giggle: I actually can't believe that I gave it up!

I can see how the dance attitude could make you feel like that :nod: But you should believe, your reallllly good :hug: If it makes you feel better, I have absolutely no confidence in anything I do and always think I'm being judged :ashamed:

Thanks so much! I'm still quite surprised at my own improvement myself. Looking at that first one, who'd have thought I'd be able to do what I'm doing now? Certainly not me! :giggle:
I sure hope I can keep this progress up next year! :hug:
