UPDATED FOR 2012 SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER 2013 STARTED GOMEN

Just some other notes because there wasn't room to really talk in the boxes...

2008
This was the year when I first started drawing. I sucked. Hard. Cut me some slack though please ;A; I was never particularly artistic during primary school and never really thought about drawing until I joined Dragoncave and Chickensmoothie.

2009
Just a quick note about the images from 2009: They're all from the last quarter of the year. I was picking the nicest images XD For the first half of the year I slowly improved with canines until I had a better grasp of anatomy. (This was helped by the fact that we got a dog that year.) Unfortunately I focused exclusively on canines and couldn't draw anything else, except maybe felines. My human art still sucked. I attempted drawing humans several times that year but got discouraged and stopped.

2010
This was the year when my canine drawing abilities regressed! 8D Well not really but... I slowly developed my own canine style that was less "realistic" (aka generic and what every CS realistic oekaki user draws like) and more cartoony but still with somewhat good anatomy? Also during 2009 most of my drawings had limited colour schemes that were dark and didn't have much colour variety. During 2010 I learned how to use colours to make pictures more interesting.

Also during 2010, my inability to draw humans finally started to seriously bother me (probably because I hang out with several people who draw humans really well *glares at Rina*)

2011
And this was the year I joined a shitton of groups and made 2982019810980198 character designs and kinda... didn't do much else. Made lots of new friends, all of whom kick my butt at art DAMN YOU GUYS D:<

Experimented with colouring styles/poses/perspective a lot and I feel like my anatomy improved a bit and colouring improved a bit and my style kinda... solidified? Other than that though I'm kinda sad about this year in terms of improvement... I feel like I need to work on backgrounds more. I WILL DO THIS IN 2012 MANNNN I WILL.

2012
Dude... Looking at all the promises I made in 2011 to work on backgrounds I'm laughing so much now because my backgrounds still suck so hard. I'LL WORK ON THEM SORRY SORRY SORRY

<33 That's all!

Pfft then that person seriously has no life and they probably just enjoy critizing people if they can't appreciate your skill and how far you've come. I'm sure even next year they'll have even more negative things to say. Ugh annoying...>_>

And you're welcome. I hope you don't focus on any negative comments like that because I'm sure they're just from people who are mad at the world so they vent at any innocent bystander. So sad...:no:
