2013 Summary by rawdi-kun 2013 Summary by rawdi-kun
January - I started using references and studied anatomy and applied it to my process. This gave me LOTS of improvement in only a week or so.
February - Started working on pieces that revolved around self analysis and slowed down in improvement.
March - I picked back up in improvement, and worked out a style that I liked and could call my own. Got lots of shit for "mannish faces", but I was still quite happy with the style regardless.
April - I hit an art block and stopped drawing a lot and went down a lot in my skill.
May - I came back and really pushed myself to do better, and I ended up improving a LOT more.
June - I dropped back down again because I got that summer time sadness.
July - I picked back up in my improvement a bit more this month, and worked on my own style as well.
August - I went back to self analysis pieces and surreal shit with deep meanings and all dat shit. Just a bunch of personal shit.
September - My tablet stopped working, so I drew a lot in my sketchbooks.
October - I worked a lot on anatomy, conceptual shit, and stories.
November - I borrowed my friend's tablet and improved quite a bit from October's practice and started using Photoshop more.
December - Applied what I've learned to my art and improved a lot, but still slow in quantity of drawings.

Hope you enjoyed this year as much as I fucking hated it.
I understand the whole "I'm improving, I'm improving aaaaaaaaaaand nothing." thing which just loops over and over. At least you pulled trough. I hope that the next year will be better for you.

quality is better than quantity!, donīt worry, youīve been very focused in your practise and thatīs great C:. Many artist donīt even worry about doing studies with photoreference and all that stuff.

Do you want to use photoshop?

That's true. I just feel if I draw more, my drawings will be better, and I will stay in the habit. I like it for my style sometimes, but I'm not that great at Photoshop.
