2007-2013 Improvement Meme by jenwzm 2007-2013 Improvement Meme by jenwzm
I finally decided it was time I do one of these memes. I know I'm so late but I didn't think I had enough stuff to show improvement earlier on.
I'd say that my progression is pretty unstable LOL It's not exactly smoothly improving by the year. I was peaking at 2010 and dropped so low in 2011-12. I hope I've made up for it this year LOL.
I admit I had a panic attack in 2011 or something and I cried once when I feared that I would never be able to draw again as if I lost an arm or something.
Drawing is my life, it's like breathing to me and I'd die without it but as you can see, I managed to survive over a year without drawing anything.

I started to go out and explore more of the outside world and discovered there's so much more to life than being cooped up in my room with my computer all day long. I was missing out so much on life that I dropped drawing because it sometimes made me depressed. I really do miss drawing a lot, I'm trying to pick it up again.
I'm sorry to disappoint my old watchers who enjoyed seeing my anime/manga works but I'm starting to drop/lose that style and I'm going for something more dramatically different than what I usually do.

I do not regret taking that long hiatus because it was a good break for me to step away from drawing and give myself room to breathe and find inspiration again. I was very busy with more important things in life like applying for university because that concerns my future. I didn't give myself time to draw and I think it was better that way because it might have jeopardized my performance in my exams if I had let it become a distraction. Once I start, I can't stop drawing.
I was planning to go to art and design school long ago but reality got to me so that won't be happening for now.
I realized that turning art into a career isn't going to be such a good idea. It's best if I keep it a hobby and I'll be happier with it that way. I don't want to turn my passion into a chore.

I'll be uploading more works in the future (hopefully) and update this meme later on with more works from 2013 this year.
