improvement meme. by vinegar improvement meme. by vinegar
Funny thing, I do those memes quite often, but usually (or actually all the time) I forget to upload them. Nice thing this one starts in 2003, when I actually started drawing for real.

It's always funny to see how crappy my art was back then. I wonder if in few next years I'll think the same of my current art. Probably yes, I always hate it very shortly after I'm done with it, seeing only flaws there. Oh, well. I'm sure many of you have exactly the same problem ;)

Here's the original template [link]

Dzięki Ci za to! Zyskałam ogromną motywację do ćwiczeń i mniej się już boję, że mając 17 lat i posiadając taki poziom jaki mam nie osiągnę niczego. Na Twoim przykładzie widać, że zaczynając nawet w wieku 19 lat można stać się wielkim. ;)
Pozdrawiam.[link]

This is a selection of four pieces from each year. Was I supposed to choose it by gender, not by pieces I found good back then (and dislike now)? That would be weird. Also - you have a gallery of almost all men, so you're sticking to your favourite theme, I stick to mine. I do draw men, especially for work, but it's not my favourite theme in my personal pieces. :)

I've no idea why people tend to think I should be informed about that. Is it like I didn't notice I draw women and they want to inform me? Also - I saw this one being told to many people who draw women, not one who draws men. Why is that? Don't get me wrong, I'm not arguing or anything, I just find it funny, as a second comment below yours is about exactly the same thing and I bet it wouldn't happen if I drew only men.. ;)

i'm not saying that it's wrong to draw only women or anything like that, nor informing u.
don't get me wrong or something, i don't mean anything.
yes, it's just about personal fav. theme.

well, i think ppl still will say the same thing if u draw only men. it's just something ppl around do quite often, like telling the artists, wat he/she always draws, like the way i told u about the 29 woman and 1 man.
but i think most of us really mean no harm. basically i think just telling for the sake of telling..

As I said above - no hard feelings, I was just curious why people are stating the obvious ;) Because I really saw this comment under many all-female galleries and never under all-male one. So it always seemed like a bad thing to draw only girls for some reason. I even remember my teacher once told me I will never get anywhere in life with what I'm drawing, because all I draw is girls (I was 10, but hey). Well, she was kind of right, as I don't draw only girls for a living of course, but still ;) I bet if I drew only boys she'd think I'm working hard on my skills, but a girl drawing girls seemed silly to her. To me it honestly doesn't matter what I draw, I don't think about it like "hey, I want to draw another girl!". It just happens that girls fit more the compositions I usually have in mind. In the same time for my work I'm doing two pieces now - 3 boys in them. Although I will admit - drawing girls comes easier to me.

Yet again - I'm not arguing, I asked because I find the topic more interesting the more I think about it :)

i don't think this happens only under all-female gallery, cos i've seen comments under all-male too, even among my friends and myself. but of course, we are encouraged to draw more different things, rather than just sticking only to one. yet, most of the time we will prefer to draw wat we used to or like. xDD i agree with wat u said. :)
ur teacher donu somehow reminded me of my teacher.. when i'm around age 14.. i passed up my drawing, when i get it bc, it's obvious that she drew on it, she thickens the lines for me. and i don't find that it makes the drawing nicer or more presentable. (my friends say that too)
that time, it does pissed me off abit, of course i din show that i'm angry.
now i've got no that kind of feelings cos no one yet makeup my drawings (except among my buddies, playing fool around xD), i can accept comments and critics very well, and improve myself, but not changing my drawings especially without my knowing..
i'm not an art student so i'm not sure, is it normal for these things to happen?

are you allowed and going to upload the boys?? : D
btw, i might just watch u cos i might get some girl inspirations from u!!~ =D

btw, it's good discussing with u about this. :)
just don't let these all-female all-male things worry u too much, i don't see it's doing any major big harm to u. :)

that must be because i didn't put any pic with men here :P

Although actually the 2004 far right pic is a boy. A kid, but still a male one (based on early XXth Century Kertesz's photo, this one: [link] ). But to be honest I picked here things I liked best when I drew them. To show that what I once found good is now awful. Drawing women was always easier for me and a preferable topic. But I do draw lots of men too, just mostly for work / commissions.

Ahh, it's the other way around for me, I find woman harder to draw than men... all that squishyness and roundness haha xD I should practice them more really.

it is your imagination, i never played it or really digged into it. But if you mean the one on the right from 2005 she was inspired by Guild Wars' necromancer. It was in the piece description, of course, but I think I deleted this one ages ago ;)

Wonderful meme! I wouldn't say your drawings were ever crappy, because even though the technique improved, 2003 still shows you had a sense for structure and character design...

Though, I do have to admit that 2008 and 2009 are just amazing. :))
