Improvement Meme by medli20 Improvement Meme by medli20
So =Peeka13 made one of those improvement meme thingamajigs, and it looked like a lot of fun so I figured I'd try it out. ;D I really enjoyed filling it out, but some of the early submissions are just... shameful.

Man, I'm really glad I joined dA, seeing how it's responsible for so much of my development as an artist. Thanks so much for your continued support, guys. <3

It looks like 2009 was the point your artstyle got distinct and reliable. All the other previous works lacked consistency.

But hey, you have some great taste in Zelda games. Windwaker is clearly the best.

Hot damn, there's amazing improvement here! This has to be the first Improvement meme I've seen that I actually shows improvement throughout each picture to the next. Well done!

Yee, such awesome improvement~! :iconravenlaplz: I see you've included one that's not really on dA anymore, but since it was up here at some point I guess it still counts, lol. XD;;

Also, is it just me or are you using a font that's based off of your own handwriting? I'd like to know what you used to make it if this is the case. o3o

medli20 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Hooraaay! :iconravenlaplz: And yeah; that one was kind of a milestone in my development so I felt like I had to include it :)

I used this website, though it's a little buggy when creating fonts. The quotation marks always give me problems, but other than that, it's pretty solid ;)

Whoooo!!! What awesome improvement!! :D

And hey! No feeling shameful about your old art! >0 That's like feeling shameful for all the hard work and effort you put into your drawings and how much you have improved! Pride! Pride is what you want to feel when comparing!

Haha, I'll try, but I just can't help looking at my old work and thinking "OHGODWHAT" xD

:iconunknown-variable:
Unknown-Variable Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Heheh xD I do that sometimes, too.
But there's always that one piece of work where you go "Oh, I remember practicing this. Wow, this looks bad but it was the stepping stone to improving in that area." Or that's with me, anyway. |D
