    This thread is for old art from YOU, also for making comparisons with your old art and your new art.

    I'll go first:

    new style.


    practise.

    my program of choice when i was little was flash, since it was the only thing i managed to illegally download by myself (i was so proud)

    found some old stuff, don't know the times any of them were made.
    I'm a little upset with this amount of improvement ;-; img259. I mean I put no effort into either but DAAAYM

    img264.
    here's one I never finished so I doodled some stuff onto it based on what I remember from the character. img262. img261. img260.
    and I can't be bothered to upload recent bits, since A)most of the ones I was proud of were never scanned before getting given away or sold and ehhhhh B) http://sonikacain.tumblr.com/

    All my shit old art was trashed when I got mad at 17, or died in the hard drive crash of 2013.
    I'm okay with that, too.
    I almost laughed my coffee onto my keyboard jfc.

    Pls don't ask me about my weeb years. ;___;
    Instead, you can follow this fucking paper trail starting here, because I remember being the angriest weeb for all of high school. Oh my god. u__u

    I unfortunately don't really save a lot of my old digital art, and much of it has been lost to the sands of time(and denial).
    However, I have saved every single sketchbook I have ever used, and will scan some of the art from them later.

    when I was in junior and senior infants sonic was the shit-
    This was long before I got internet though so the autism never took over img029.
    For some reason when I was younger everything I drew was really small

    lol those two pictures are from like uhh... 5 years ago I think? I was in the middle of highschool, and I wasn't taking art as seriously as I should have, I usually just drew for the heck of it while listening to some youtube letsplay in the background.

    then when I started college (16 years of age, I'm not american so I'm not sure what to call everything)
    I tried harder to get serious, and I started using photoshop

    (I sucked so hard)

    But in that college I lived in a dorm wiht other people who were trying to get serious, and we kinda leeched off of eachother. So I had like an art growthspurt for about a year there, the school that was supposed to teach me things taught me nothing, but we taught ourselves by being together : )

    I'm not really good enough yet in my own eyes to be satisfied, you never really are haha, but you can always look back at old drawings and think " yeah, yeah I'm moving forward, I''m going somewhere"
    which is why I have almost EVERYTHING IVE EVER DIGITALLY DRAWN in a folder on my computer.

    tl:dr I used to suck, I practised with friends, it took like 5 years, I now suck a little less

    These are all 2006 or so, as far back as I could find stuck in my DA scraps and wasn't eyeballed from an existing image.

    004.

    003.

    002.

    ^ my attempt at caricaturing a guy from my work at the time

    001.

    ^ This one is 2004, my last year of high school. I like the colors and the general idea I was going for with it. I should try to to do an updated version of it maybe.

    I can't seem to find my old sketchbooks but just imagine a lot of sharp angled robots and tornadoes.

    That'll get you through my adolescence.

    Thankfully, I deleted all my "art" from when I was 14/15/16 y/o, so it will never see the light of day again.

    So I couldn't find my very first (big)sketchbook. I either purposely accidentally threw it away, or else lost it in the move.
    Thus we shall have to contend with a few gems from my second sketchbook.

    I remember feeling proud of this.

    You can always tell which ones I liked by whether or not I took some time to shade them.

    In middle school, since I didn't give a fuck about drawing at the time I would draw a random blob on a sheet of paper and try to make some creature out of it, logic, color theory, and anatomy be damned. I still have the drawings around, I'll see if I can scan a few up tomorrow.

    The worst part is knowing that you were proud of it at one point.
    I found a portrait of Marilyn Manson in my old box 'o shit art. I don't even remember drawing it, but that horrifying, lopsided face is now ingrained in my mind
