2012 Art Summary

Here’s my art summary of 2012 – the good, the bad, and the in-between. 2012 has been a pretty big year for me, art-wise.  I’ve been doodling and drawing for years now, but 2012 has been the first year I’ve drawn consistently over a period of time. This time last year, I was sketching random ideas intermittently and drawing them digitally with a mouse. :sweat:

Now, I actually have a proper process for drawing and I’m now using a tablet which my friend gave me! It admittedly took a while for me to get used to, but it has really made such a difference in my style and my art in general, both digitally and traditionally. I think seeing everything I’ve drawn below shows quite a bit of improvement and a big style transition; I’m learning a lot every day, but I’m pretty excited about the direction everything’s going in. I’m not going to make excuses for the some of the less than stellar artwork here – some of them were really discouraging at the time but now I just see every bad drawing as just another stepping stone to better things. c:

I didn’t mean for this to become a huge essay on my art XD But I do just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s supported and inspired me throughout this year. Everyone who’s given me constructive feedback, and of course everyone at my blog, my DeviantART and my Facebook page  :)  You motivate me more than you know :love:  Bring on 2013!!
