As 2019 gets underway, I've decided that this year marks a vast improvement in my own skill level and work quality. Because of this, I am splitting my work from here on into individual years, but 2018 and years prior will be under one category. The period from approximately 2012 - 2018 still had a lot of lesser quality work, but now I see that my work is improving a lot so each year from 2019 onwards will be archived in its own list. I noticed a positive shift in my work's style and quality beginning in the fall of 2018, which I attribute to the large focus I put on my work to distract myself from a lot of loneliness and sadness that I had been feeling. I always try and change negatives into positives.
Make sure to check out all the new work that I've been doing and I'll be posting a lot more as I continue to work.
Just enjoy the act of drawing itself and you'll get good at it. Enjoy everyone!
I picked up my old sketchbook tonight and started doing some new sketches in it. It's a sketchbook that my brother gave me back in 2014 as a gift and I have used it off and on since then. It's funny to see how my inspirations and style has shifted in the past 4 years. I used to draw really fast, which appears much more sketchy than my current sketches. I also used to draw from my imagination a lot.
My current sketches are all from life and the world around me. I still draw pretty quickly, but it's not as wild as my style back in 2014. It's an interesting comparison and it brought back a lot of memories. I have some old notes in there also, some made me sad and some made me smile. I'll start using this sketchbook more often and I used it tonight to draw small portrait sketches of my family.
