Well, 2019 is here, and I have officially surpassed one year on Deviant Art. I think I had actually reached my first year back in November or December, but to make things easier, I decided to just round up to January…. And to celebrate my very first year of returning to art, I have created an art summary featuring one picture from each month of 2018.
Each picture is more or less my best picture of the month, with the one rule being I didn’t want to repeat characters any more than necessary. In this time, I have already seen a bit of an improvement, both in the characters portrayed and the backgrounds. Practice and tutorials helped me with the former. Painting with Bob Ross helped me with the latter. A few months in, I even started coloring the lines instead of leaving them black.
For 2019, you should start seeing changes in how I color eyes and hair based on the tutorials mentioned in this post. Plus, I’m sure there are plenty of other things I’ll be working to improve, but I try to take that one step at a time. If I get too caught up in tutorials, I’ll never finish any actual pictures, now will I?
