When you’re just starting out with art, it can be easy to feel discouraged. It can be easy to think things like “My art will never be as good as some things I’ve seen other artists make!“. Well, that’s where you’re wrong!
I know that it’s the oldest piece of advice in the book, but the fact is that with enough regular practice, your art can indeed improve dramatically. Yes, it will take time – but remember that literally every artist starts out by producing art which “doesn’t look very good”.
So, since I can’t think of a good idea for an article for today (sorry about yet another filler post), I thought that I’d show you a collection of my art over the past two years or so – both in order to show you how my art has progressed and, more importantly, how your art can progress if you keep practicing.
I’m also starting this gallery at 2012 because my art from before then is embarassingly terrible – seriously, it looks a bit like this:
One of my embarassingly terrible drawings from 2005.
(Note: The dates of these pictures are the months when they were originally made, not necessarily when they were first posted online. This is also why this gallery only goes up to July this year. And, to keep the loading time of this page down to a sensible level I won’t include one picture from every month, as I’d originally planned to do.)
Anyway, enjoy 🙂

Sorry for posting the blog equivalent of a clip show, but hopefully I’ll think of an idea for a proper article tomorrow 🙂
