2013 by hitsukuya 2013 by hitsukuya

2013 IS HUGE FAILURE YEAR.

I posted quite a bit on DA through June-July but those were actually drawn some time in March-April because I used them as prints during convention season, which started in May. Drew only one picture in June and one doodle in Sept, then some sketches in October. I started getting back into things in November because I had to draw for a couple artbooks (lol). I think December has been my best month since after so little drawing for most of the year, I found it easier to experiment with colouring and coming up with better concepts, though most December-drawings are only on my twitter/tumblr so any improvement/changes might not be noticeable.

Overall, I think I got better at cging this year (as a whole), since it was my resolution last year to improve at cging. I also worked on expressions/lighting a bit as well, since I realized much of my art from 2012 had 'same-face' issues orz (yeah, pretty much always going to draw girls because I draw what's enjoyable for me, but I still want to improve so that not every girl looks the same).

IDK, MY PROGRESSION IS UP DOWN DOWN DOWN SLIGHTLY UP.  It was hard having motivation to draw for much of this year due to personal issues in my life which took precedence over everything else.

Mine would be more fail because....I don't even know if I'd have half of the slots to fill ._.

You're always getting better ;o; *reaches* and pro-y-er haha XD and yeah, cool concepts, I'm going to work on concepts too now instead of my usual boring-ness .u.

Shhh, you're doing great this/last year >3<

it's definitely not a huge failure that's for sure ; o ; !!
maybe you did not improve as much as you wanted to but I think that is okay
allocate time for drawing next year and hope for the best ; v ; !!
(though love the art from all your months lol)

Interesting - The one from May I can't find in your gallery, though I'd say that's the best. Not really a fail year, just more like you haven't felt motivated or something. idk.

Wow. I've got to say that all of these look awesome! I think you've improved over the years, which goes with the coloring and style. But they're also adorable, not to mention the eyes >u< But again, these are amazing! I can't wait to see your work in 2014!

Thank you so much! I guess it's hard for me to see improvement in a single year but when I look at 2012, I feel I improved quite a bit, which makes me happy to see u 3 u;

Do you have art-related goals for the new year?
Reply
:iconhitsukuya:
hitsukuya Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh umm, I always have goals and things to work on when it comes to art so I think they're pretty much always in my head regardless of the time of year. But I think top of the list for 2014 are backgrounds, lighting, and emotion. Maybe a LITTLE bit of variety too, as in a FEW boys and girls with chest LOL (but I can't truly promise that haha).

Art is about expression. If you truly seek to challenge yourself then I agree with you when it comes to variety.

I personally thing your art has gotten 100% better in 2013 :3 Sometimes less drawing/more unfinished stuff means more progress/evolvement.

HNGG THANKS <3

I totally agree with you! I think when you're always drawing, you get into a rhythm which can be good speed-wise but if you're not careful, you get too comfortable and never experiment so things can get repetitive/boring. I always found it so hard to experiment because I'm not really good at trying new brushes/new things but after not drawing for half the year, this December has been very good in terms of trying new things!

Welcome! <3
omg yes. I know dat feel - becoming slower at drawing/ taking breaks to evaluate your process to improve it and adapt to doing new things, it's a really positive thing, you should be proud, it will pay off in the end! ( ^ w^b impulsive drawing or just to draw more can keep ya stuck, like you say.
no me neither I'm so uncomfortable with changing, it was tought but I've done it too.
