Improvement Meme by NitroGoblin Improvement Meme by NitroGoblin
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: :iconccwelcomedplz1::iconccwelcomedplz2:
:iconplusfave1plz::iconplusfave2plz::iconplusfave3plz:

UPDATE: 2012 added 2012 to the chart and brightened the colors from the traditional colored ones.
UPDATE: 2013 Added 2013 to it, even with a few months left for the year, because well, Hell, I can.
UPDATE: 2014 Added 2014 to it, 7 year anniversary on DA today (Between the two accounts I've held)
----------------

I felt like I needed to do this meme, I'm sure no one is familiar with my style's improvement over my lifetime.

Blank meme:

Truthfully I love this. I think it's a great demonstration of how simply drawing, in itself, can cause improvement. Sure there have been similar memes in the past, but this one dates back so far and gives so many examples, which really sets this meme apart from others. I guess my only advice is to never stop drawing. Your proportions, colors, shading, backgrounds and overall style have gotten better with every attempt. So whatever you're doing is working. Don't stop. XD Anyway, looking forward to more artwork in the future. And looking forward to your 2015 additions to this meme!

Let me start this by saying 'Holy S&@t-throwing monkeys'!

Now that that's out of the way, I wouldn't have expected you progress sooo far.

Age 1-10: you start with your basic pencil drawing, taking more shape in the later half.

Age 11-14 : your start coloring.

Age 15: you add shades and lighting.

Age 16: I just want to say I like the smoking pikachu.

Age 17-19: you advance your drawing and add backgrounds.

Age 20: your start your digital art.

Age 21-24: you continue to amaze us.

This shows that people can sharpen there skills with time and practice. Me and my fellow watchers hope to see more of your work in the future.

This is a great example of personal evolution through love of your craft, showing the dates and history of your art as it progresses provides great insight not only into how you personally  grew as an artist, but it can also show how it is for other artists.  I love this meme!

I can only imagine how nostalgic you must feel when looking at old work and comparing it to what you do now. Last year when I was packing because my family and I were moving, I stumbled upon my old sketch pad from when I was 13 and now that I'm 18 I felt so nostalgic when looking at it. It's like you can see that you were improving as the years went by and looking back just shows you how far you've come. I personally am not stopping any time soon and I hope you don't ether.

Ermergerd.

If I were to do this meme, I'd have to dock off the bottom rows and subject all my watchers to stick figures and crap that would make their eyes bleed profusely.

Your art is awesome. *bows in respect*

You know what's the bst thing and the worst at the same time. It seems like the meme had stopped at this very most interesting part. It seems like the next few rows would be the most epic.
It's a good meme and great improvement. I once had a wish to do something like this, but I tend to burn my art, when not more needed.

Why do you burn your art, I wish I kept all mine when I was younger, but since jr high and after I saved my art in this giant divider for the years or in sketchbooks.

I just get rid of things I have no need for, that's all. Some find it monstrous, yes, most people find it monstrous. Even vandalism.
I get rid of anything unwished. I can do better now, and I don't want to look back on something worse. And I feel no sorry for that, actually, though I think I should.
But you must know how is it - when you don't feel or act the way other people expect you to, right? ;)

I remove stuff unwish from ym deviantart, but i keep them to look back how much I've improved. But I understand why you do it. Yep.

I think you still need some improvement, especially where anatomy is involved, but you've definitely come a long way so far.

...and? Just because somebody ELSE is better doesn't mean you can't strive to improve upon yourself.

NitroGoblin Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012   Digital Artist
No that's not what I meant. I mean it's harder for me to get better, I try very hard, but I'm self taught and with A.S. it makes it harder for me to improve.
