2012 Art Summary Meme by BlueRoseArkelle 2012 Art Summary Meme by BlueRoseArkelle
TvT J-just wanted to do this. xD Didn't do it last year so I thought I would this year. but in my defense I didn't have anything remotely decent to put in it last year. OTL

....Q//v//Q Its uhm....quite interesting to see my improvement. I'm really proud of myself for the things i've accomplished this year, even if they are only small. xD Biggest accomplishment is that every single month I drew something with some form of background, where as before this year I had only ever done a legitimate background less than a handful of times in all those years.
TvT Ahh its also makes me somewhat sentimental to see that a lot of very meaningful characters came to form this year. Others went through lots of development and became greater than what I had ever imagined.

...xD I also realized from this meme that Spring season is apparently not my ideal time for drawing. April/May/June were just like barren wastelands of artsu.
xD Then there were other months where I had so much artsu I had a hard time choosing just one. August and March were really productive months! ^v^

TvT So...I think as a whole, my coloring and compositional knowledge improved the most....xD My style thankfully stayed mostly the same, which i'm happy about. I keep thinking it changes so much but I guess that is just me being paranoid xD

;w; S-so anyways....I'm looking forward to see what happens in 2013! ^v^ You guys should do this meme too, if you haven't already! I'd love to see them~

Q//v//Q Also, special thank you to everyone who has been supportive of me since the beginning of the year! xD If you've known me since before June (when I got a DD) then ASDFGH SO MUCH LOVE OMG YOU ARE STILL HERE PUTTING UP WITH MY NONSENSE COME HERE AND LET ME LOVE YOU :heart:

i started watching you when baylee made that video about you, and i've been hooked to you since, i want to do one of these but i dont think its a good idea this year, as i have no idea what things were from, although i do write dates in everything, im too lazy, i dont have a laptop at the moment, but next year im planning to do this, now that my art is getting half decent, m-maybe we could do an art trade one day? pwetty pwease?

Yeah, the improvement is obvious:nod: Looking at that January picture of Phyre and the October one shows so much, since they feature the same character. The colors are so much more intense and smooth and I think your hair's gotten a lot better, too, just to point something out!

I'll never do this meme, because I, on the other hand, would only depress myself because I know I haven't improved much XD And I don't even have the guts to draw backgrounds XD

You're so productive, you know. I'm lucky if I can get a single picture finished in a month... And the time I spend on them isn't even a good enough excuse for that XD
But you can work on a single picture for over 20 hours or longer...
I've been meaning to ask you for a long time now, but how can you do that? Don't you have to eat, sleep, go to school and do chores and school assignments? In fact, may I ask you how much time you have to spend at school and with school-related non-art work? Roughly?

>//v//> Aww, thanks! ;w; Yeah, I noticed the most improvement there too! TvT I think it was because in the beginning of the year I was still unsure of how to go about using Prismacolor Premiere pencils and was rather afraid of using darker, intense colors. >v< Took years to get over that, but I'm really glad I finally am~

;___; A-awww b-but I think you've improved! Your style changed so much this year, and your coloring is much more playful! I hope you notice that anyways....:heart:

;v; Ahhh that is a really good question. You see, my focus is rather short, so I tend to only work on a drawing for about an hour or two at a time, then take a break and go back to it or work on a different drawing to refresh my mind. When I take breaks, I usually try to work on school work or work on videos/editing/comments etc. I do that throughout the whole week, so the time adds up! TvT Right now, I take online classes so even though the work is much harder and needs to be completed much faster I can work on it at my own time so when my focus is sharp I work on that rather than being forced to go into class when I may not be at my best. xD I'd say I work on school work about...4 hours each day at least (including weekends and holidays)~ ;n; But if I'm being honest, the reason why I can spend a lot of time on art is because I have taken pretty much everything else out of my life. I made the decision to stop watching TV, playing video games daily, spending time with friends... even though it sounds sad and painful, I made the conscious choice to give them up in order to have more time for what maters to me most. ;__; Also, because I have a sleeping problem I have to sleep about 12 hours each day to function properly, so realistically I just do not have time for anything else other than art and school (and barely enough time for eating and chores xD). Priorities....its all about priorities and not letting anything or anyone get in the way of them. I've been called selfish and cold-hearted for it, but time is short and I don't know what day will be the last, so I want to spend every second I can doing what I enjoy most. ;__; I hope that makes sense.

I notice that my style changed because I did the intentionally, yes, but... It can be so hard to see this kind of thing myself.

I think I understand what you mean by priorities. That sounds quite harsh to me, yes... But I suppose it's alright as long as you're happy with your decision:heart:
Anyway, sounds like online courses suit you:nod: I prefer going to school. I really dislike doing anything school-related at home, but I do all that anyway, because I want my good grades to stay good.

I see the improvement 8D.

You know what I notice in all of your characters? They always have the "I don't give a damn" look XDD. Maybe that's why everyone loves your drawings!! <3 Oh yeah, I'm going to do the meme too... like now LOL.

Haha, I have a big problem with style. Whenever I move on to different sketchbooks and then I go back to my previous one I get so annoyed becuase I usually want it to stay one particular style. XD
