That's one of the things I find most troubling about being an artist though, is seeing how much you've improved when at the time, something you were so proud of brings horror to you now... ex: Sakura in Goth v. Ameya in Seppengakure-- love the last, hate the first (though it was the very first time I was using a vector program- and I knew nothing about layers-- nothing.)

I just wish I knew what I was doing 100% of the time-- and get better even with all that knowledge... but as of now it's more like 20%... with trial and error and.... finally saying to myself there's nothing more I can do for it...


Ohh? That's troubling to you? Well, just remember that as much as you hate your old work now... that's likely how much you'll end up improving in the future. And it doesn't matter what happens in the past, You're goal is in the future, isn't it?
By the way, I did look at both of those pictures and I think the improvement is wonderful. Most of my favorite artists are ones that I've seen improve over the years. Some of my favorite manga is manga where the style has completely changed near the end of the series. xD I dunno, it might be weird, but I love it. I think it adds depth to the character of the artist and the art.

Well... There's never going to be a time when you know everything, but you'll always learn something new every time you draw. That's not a bad thing. XD; Drawing is a sort of trial of love, it can be frustrating but it's very rewarding in the end. In many ways.

XD;; Wow, thank you! Well, I dont mean to sound like a know it all or anything.. I just figure someone can benefit from my experiences. Deviant art has bored me to tears lately. I left for a long time... then came back... and then I still wasn't impressed. But no one knows me anymore so I have few people to talk to anyway. xD
