10 years by MOVED2-Lavender-Iced 10 years by MOVED2-Lavender-Iced
I improve really slow it frustrates me...... I was feeling bad about my age, but then I ran into charts of other artists who improved in their twenties, so I have some hope again.
doing it now so I can aim for an extra row for the end of the year :>

little life story as extra. which is your favorite year? o:
I liked them all for their own reasons I guess XD

hmm... I keep thinking I should try making one of these.
But, I haven't been drawing much the last few years, and most of my older drawings are gone. ^_^"
But it's neat to see how people improve. (if you compare two years that aren't side-by-side, I think improvements would be more obvious. Year-to-year improvements are going to be pretty subtle unless you purposely change your style, I think.)
I like how cute that picture of Lan looks in 2003, by the way. Such big, shiny eyes. But you draw her more realistically now, which is also nice.

Around the iAnti period is where I found you and I never looked back. I love every style and every period. No worries about improving slow. Improving at all is what is important and your art is always gorgeous. I miss seeing it in person. *sigh* Too poor to get to conventions lately...

I don't really have a favourite. I think you improved in each, even if it is little. It still shows that you are improving and that you are putting your heart in it. Keep up doing what you love most, and evantually you will end up somewhere you want to be. You are a great artist, so believe in yourself as that :)

You are so talented and always improving - I feel like I am always chasing after you. Maybe that's a little weird considering that we've never met (and I can still hardly compare)! I remember when I stumbled upon SugarStars all those years ago(the shiny era, lol)

Can't wait to see more of your work!

Also, stop making me feel old TT_TT

I remember your art all the way back in '04 back when you were Ranu-sama lol. You were one of the artists I looked up to a lot. You've improved so much since then, it's amazing. @_@ I think 06 is my favorite year, when I really noticed your art improving the most. I don't think you improve slowly at all! There's something noticeable for every year.

I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet you at Youma also! I wish I could have bought more from you, but it was still a pleasure to meet you.

btw I'm 25... less than a half a year from 26... Don't feel so bad about age. IT JUST MEANS YOU KNOW MORE. :heart:

we're like the same age here! (im gonna b 24 in october) and my drawing skillz r not as good as yours! i dont focus on one thing too long, i like to do other artsy things, like painting and sculpting. i guess thats why my drawing skills r not that advanced, but they will b one day. i like ur art! i found you around the time when u were starting sugarstars but i never bothered to read it until a couple of months ago, now i really like it and im anxious to see how it turns out!

Ah I know what you mean by feeling bad about age....Many of my friends have far surpassed me and on top of that I see many younger artists who are way more skilled than I. But I guess it doesn't matter what other artist are doing or how long it may take. As long as you keep drawing and your love for art never goes away you will continue to improve^^ Great job on all your artwork btw :3

Same, I look at my drawings and it's just like "You're 19 and draw like a 13 year old". Totally sucks to feel like you're way behind everybody else, but like you said there are plenty of artists who didn't pick up until they were older. I like 2011 a lot, the textures you added to the drawings were really appealing :)

Well, you have very clearly improved and developed your own style. My suggestion is to break out of your "comfort zone", as it will act as a catalyst for your improvement.
