2005-2011 IMPROVEMENT by lalami02 2005-2011 IMPROVEMENT by lalami02
I really wanted to do this meme after all xD haha :lmao:

geez... =.= other artists meme have a lot of colors over the years while 3/4 of mine are colorless.. I guess I really was so scared of colors OTL.. *sob*

my fav years ever were 2005 and 2006 <33 worst year ever 2009.. never felt so clueless and lost =__=

some of you might be wondering, and some actually asked me how I learned to draw and color. well I'm self taught, not trying to give myself credit here.. but I'm a fast learner, I observe, analyze carefully and then practice like hell, I grew up like that.. depending on myself to get what I want, if I can't learn something by myself I will never learn it even if the best teacher explains it to me 100 times, I ALWAYS take the long way in art.. its fun I like the adventure and challenge that comes along the way, plus I don't forget what I discover, and I gain experience points much faster lol.

I wanna improve next year .. like REALLY improve :iconcryforeverplz: I'm quite grateful and thankful that I can finally color properly, but I guess I wanna aim even higher from now on, so wish me luck! ;D

have so many messages to reply to ;A; not enough time OTL.... guess I'll reply to ya guys next year lol, Happy New Year luv ya all! <33 *runs*

Oh wow. This is super amazing *A*
Such a huge jump form '09 to '10 indeed
I take it that you read lots of tutorial around this time and studied more on realism?

Thank you! <3
yeah, I started with the color theory and studied a lot about them from different sources, old and new.
the tutorials that inspired into realism were ones done by the elites from ImagineFX magazine *u*

Oh I see. I checked their site but I saw that I'd have to pay for the digital copies of their magazines so I left them be. orz
I still do have a lot of books to finish after all. I've been slacking off on reading although I've drawn more these past few months

lol really?? at the time when I visited it was possible to download their tutorials for free x'D

Oh I just realized that apparently, I can download their PDFs on another site for free. orz

Thank you very much for the reference, by the way. ouo
