i wanted to make it some time ago as i promised it to some people..

those pictures show the progress i did since joining DA (i know, i subscriped in summer 2003, but sent my first art around september). the choice is not random here, i chose only my more realistic attempts, for which i didn't use any reference at all and the ones i was proud of at the time i painted them.

the first one only my hardcore watchers can remember, i deleted it years ago; second one - eloise - is still in my gallery even though it has awful mistakes and is terribly flat, i still have some sentiment for it.. third one was never finished, but i remember how proud i was of drawing it from scratch, including colours.. not as flat as before.. the last one is the current picture i'm working on, so it's still unfinished, but i believe in drawing this face i achieved a lot.. last year i've been reading LOTS about colours theory and practiced skintones.. it's still not what i'm aiming for, but reaching it from scratch in around 3 hours is something i'm really fond of.

it's like 3 years anniversary in some way :giggle:

so, it's also for those of you who keep complaining you'll be never as good as some artists.. just see where i started, and believe me, this one was one of the best i could do 3 years ago ;)

will scrap soon, just don't know if those people who wanted to see it watch my scraps or not.

juz chcialem napisac, ze te prace z 2003 sa lepsze, ale zobaczylem ta babeczke z bialymi wlosami co zostawia krwiste slady na scianie i mnie urzekla. Ma jakos tak niespotykanie mila twarz. I wogole jakby miala czerwone teczowki to by byla najsliczniejsza na swiecie poniewaz albinoski sa piekne.

happy three year.

i think it was around that 2004 one when i started watching you. yup yup. it was drawings of yours around that period that made me want to start doing some more drawings, but i sucked horribly with realistic humans and gave up shortly after. i really like seeing your details 'cause it helps me get an idea of what i should be doing. i always look forward to your submissions.

Czasami dobrze sobie zrobić takie zestawienie, żeby dostrzec nawet własne postę;py, bo czasami wydaje nam się, że nie ruszamy się z miejsca. Twoje prace z tej pierwszej serii jeszcze pamiętam:D. Tej przedostatniej faktycznie nigdy nie widziałam. Ostatniej też jeszcze nie. Bardzo mi się podoba i mam nadzieję, że zrobisz z niej coś więcej, bo ma świetne kolory i rzeczywiście tak zwane skintones poprawiłaś znacznie:).

A tę drugą też pamiętam i też mam do niej sentyment.

I remember the first one! I still think it's cute.

You definatly made impressive progress in realism, especially with the skin tones, and how different surfaces reflect light and colors in different ways... I know about all this stuff, but i still dont have the abilities to use them in arts...

Well, it's nice to see your progress!

I much less care about the technique than about this 'something' that makes a drawing stand out. I have noticed quite a time ago that the more realistic the drawing the blander and more common it becomes. At least to me the simpler style is more powerful when it comes to conveying the mood, emotions.

I do love them all. All your images are visually stunning and emotionaly evocative. The first 2 images seem to be more stylized and "graphic" which is great. Your style has evolved into more realism, the latest image seems to come right out of my monitor to draw me in. Excellent work!:clap:
