    I thought this would be fun. Because I've met so many artists starting out that give up because they feel like they're terrible. So, upload some of your best art, then upload some of the oldest or worst you can find.

    Cause I think if people see that everyone starts somewhere, they won't give up so easily. This is supposed to be inspirational btw, so please don't make fun of people.

    I'll go, since I think this is a really solid thread.
    First drawing I ever drew on my own (meaning not copying another picture).

    July 6, 2011. I was 15.
    [​IMG]

    This was April 21, 2016. I was 19.
    [​IMG]

    July 11, 2017. I'm 21.
    [​IMG]

    And here's a thing I made a few days ago showing various drawings from 2016 (+the Len one above).
    The drawings aren't in order of date, they were randomly selected from last year. Notice the varying quality difference all through 2016!

    I'll dig up some 2012 - 2015 drawings in a bit, and then edit this post to reflect that!

    hoooo boyyyyy let's see
    well, i've honestly been drawing since i probably started school (so about 5 years old??)
    however, there's no reason why i'd have anything that old on here lol
    the oldest digital art (or really anything i guess) i have is from 2011, and i was 9 LOL
    i really only drew sonic oc's back then, but i just started on anime too. shiver
    so, let's sit back and enjoy... because i feel like digging through my old art for this

    age: 9 yrs.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] i'm sure there's other worse stuff i made back then, but yeahhh.

    age: 10 yrs.
    [​IMG] some of my first actual ANIME art was during this time lmaoo
    [​IMG]
    and also those sonics, man

    age: 11 or 12 probably, i was a student so i forget lol
    [​IMG] i thought this was sooooo good when i drew it, i was so proud
    [​IMG] screeeee

    age: 13 yrs.
    [​IMG]
    this was early 2014 probably
    [​IMG] yikes

    age: 13 - 14
    [​IMG] used to be sooo proud of this lol
    [​IMG] proud of this too ahhh

    age: 14/15
    [​IMG] started to improve digitally and basically all around at this point
    [​IMG]
    i finished this this year, but the original pic was drawn in 2016 lol

    age: 15/16
    [​IMG] i began learning this new style this year
    [​IMG] (AND WE CAN'T FORGET RYATA'S VCV ART... i'm.. too proud of it.)

    p h ew
    as a bonus, here's something i drew last night lmao:
    [​IMG]

    Oh jeez, I completely forgot to reply to my own thread.

    I think this was from 2011, so I would've been 10ish. It is the oldest drawing I still have with me.

    Dear lord.

    This's from probably around 2015. I was 14.
    [​IMG]

    From around late 2016. I was 16.
    [​IMG]

    And this's a bunch of recent stuff. Drew them within the last three months. I'm 18.

    And thanks everyone who commented. I had completely forgotten about this.

    I was 12-13, these are the few drawings that survived because I've moved quite frequent

    I was on and off again when it came to digital
    I focused more on practicing and improving my drawings

    I actually put more effort into practice that I didn't put any time to actually make drawings for myself to enjoy.

    now here we are, don't really have time to focus extremely on my art like back then, I have more resources to practice, more inspiration, expanding more on what inspires/aesthetically pleases my taste etc etc also a redraw from 2012
    hope to see how far I'll go from now :uhuhu:
