Improvment Meme 2005-2012 by Minzile Improvment Meme 2005-2012 by Minzile
EDIT: I added the second half of 2010, 2011 and 2012!
:) since the world is going to an end :P i wanted to see where i got so far. not too many works in 2012 since i used a lot of time working on an animation video.

comment back in 2010:

2005-2010 a long time. but i really got into painting 2006 and into drawing 2009 i guess. I had to split 2009 in halfs because you can't compare the beginning to the ending. its just like another me, who did those things :/. Its strange. I thought i wasn't good at the moment, but i never thought how bad i was back then... so. Lets all keep it up :). And let it flow.

template --> by [link] i edited it a bit

please show me yours :) its really helpfull to open your own eyes about yourself!!

i think it is interesting how you progressed to a very realistic style, then you go to more abstract... interesting, but i guess you do need to know the basics to make even abstract awesome

abstract for me is the same as simplyfied. i know that there are various forms of abstract art. this is what it means to me. so if i don'T know how to do it "complicated" and realistic. i can't know how to simplify it perfectly. :D... thank you for your insightfull comment! i havn't looked at that point yet!

after a now good friend told me about simple laws of colour i had a very strange moment. i suddenly knew what it meant when people say "art is hard work". before that moment i painted when i was in the mood to. after then i started studying. i made a cut between making art and sketching. i think there were many questions i had to ask myself after that point: do i paint what i want to paint or do i simply paint what i think i "can" paint? where are my weaknesses? and then i started to study from books, from other artworks i've found in the internet, in books, in museums (and yes i really did that :D). i know what art means to me (that's the most important part), and i know that i want to draw/paint what i want and definately not what i am limited to, therfor i work hard ...i draw everyday and i do it without pressure because i'm moved by my will to grow.

i hope this helps <3

This is a really great idea, and very interesting to see how your style has developed and in my opinion improved over time. I know that when I sold a company I owned, and was able to paint solid for two years I got much more efficient and produced better works with each painting. I laughed at your end of the world comment as well. When I was removing the November page in a big calendar in my kitchen, I noticed a note on December 21st....my eleven year had written simply, "world will end" as the note for the day.

you sold a company... i had private changes. everytime i made a huge step something has happened.

:D haha, that's great (the entry in your calender). a day to relax, nothing you need to do, why go to work in case the world ends? why eating the old things in the fridge when you can have your favorite thing, why thinking about future when you can live in the moment? ah i love that day :D! hopefully the world ends everyday!

Well I figure I am at least 20 years older then you are, so you have plenty of time for many great things to happen to you. :nod:

I did ask her why she bothered adding any entries after the 21st though....:shrug:

Yeah me too except this year I feel like I missed the mark.
Mainly due to working on long, time consuming projects
that are still not completed and losing all my digital programs
and files last month. But I'm looking for redemption in '13! :D

you never get worse ;) you just change technics. so it feels like you got worse until you pulled yourself up again to the level you've been with your old technic.

by concept do you mean having an idea of what to draw before you draw it? I rarely do it, if i do i give up because it didn't turn out the way i wanted. but a few days ago i decide i should try to come up with what to draw so i can improve my weak points.
Like the idea of practicing daily without presser, do you just draw when you feel like it or what?

:iconminzile:
Minzile Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010   General Artist
concept: vision, idea, intention where i want my work to go. before i draw and developing it while i draw :). both is important and i love the second one even more.

i feel like drawing/painting most of my day. its like eating or going to sleep. and when i have n otime for drawing or painting i build concepts for the next days.... its just a part of my everydaylife :).

i hope this answers your questions :aww:. good luck with your drawings!

haha 2009 was the year i realized that i might have a bit of talent and started to take art more seriously. i also joined DA in September 09 :)... that was an enormous push because of all the motivation to show something good on my page, the feedback, the amazing pictures from other artists and also the tutorials. thanks a lot. :heart:
