A more detailed compilation of my development process within the last 16 years! :aww:
I can maybe upload a summary of my application portfolio for the university, if you want to see it?

I'll never stop KICKING MYSELF, because there is always room to get better and that's the greatest thing about it.

Thank you this gives me hope! I love your artwork, but it also depresses me. I see your works and think 'I could never learn to do that'. But then I see how far you have progressed! And...not to seem rude, but it makes me feel better because I could draw better than you at the same age (16) (I promise that wasn't meant to sound bad!)

I'm 13 and I made my first realism 3 or so days ago. I'm not sure if it compares to even your 1997 art. Guess I have to kick it up a notch xD.  


Not trying to spam but, this is it. ID like to know. For my first real try. How is it?

I like this very much!!! I think that it is really helpful and cool that you showed your progress of you being an artist. You have come a long way and improved a lot, and you making this (i feel) gives people that are aspiring to be great artist the hope and drive that they will be one. You've done an awesome job over the years, thanks for sharing :) :D

This is amazing...you're one of my favorite artists, your style has served of such great inspiration to me. I have to admit, I have been using your "various media" technique for a while now, and it's thus far the best I've found. It just suits what I've been looking for so well! I'm not nearly as good as you, but I'd really like to thank you for posting the tutorials and helping people who are trying to get better. I saw this improvement of yours, and I just *had* to comment: I'm glad you exist. I've been trying to apply to the university myself, right now, while living in Berlin...and just...I'm not sure I can explain why, but to see your improvement really made me feel happy with myself, and feel a huge want to keep on drawing and get better as an artist and as a person. Thank you for serving as an inspiration and an example to me. I wish I could meet you just to give you a hug lol I don't post most of my drawings on Deviantart, but here is what I could come up with from your technique~
First try: [link]
Second try: [link]
I know it's not nearly as good as yours, but I hope it can make you somewhat proud, as I'm sure you have touched a lot of other people's hearts and made them become a lot better artists then before ^^
Thank you!

oh WOW....I wish I could, one day, look back and kick my 14-year-old self's ass...! You had improved so immensely over the years...! Do you go to classes or just practices? How do you even have time? I am a kid, and I barely manage to stay up till 2-3 a.m to draw because my evenings are always flooded with homeworks....ó.ò

but anyway, I admire you so much, and I congratulate you. You really did kick your own ass ;)
