Progress Chart v2 by Rueme Progress Chart v2 by Rueme
Decided to update my progress chart since my old one was missing the last two years.

---

2004: Started to draw seriously at the age of 15. Mainly used MS Paint and Oekaki boards.

2005: Lack of internet suddenly resulted in me drawing with traditional media. Mainly used coloured pencils.

2006: Got the net back and tried out Photoshop for the first time. Scanned in pencil and used a mouse to line are colour my work.

2007: Bought my first cheapy tablet and started using Open Canvas since it had smoother brushes.

2008: Started playing around with different poses. Still using OC and PS. Got used to sketching on the tablet instead of with pencil.

2009: Got paint tool SAI and began developing my drawing and colouring style.

2010: Focusing more on just having fun drawing fanart rather than actually improving. Drew A LOT.

2011: Drawing style has started to gradually mature and the colouring has gotten softer? Had a bit of a crisis this year where I hated everything I drew and got pretty unmotivated. Hopefully this improves later on in the year. Now 22.

Seeing these charts always helps to lift my spirits, since they remind me that even amazing artists started out on the ground level and worked their way up, so I can too. :blush:

T.T This deviant really drives home you know? :/ I mean for me at least. I haven't really been drawing humans that much cuz I think I really stink at them. But this kinda makes me realize that if I work at it, I can become better.

You've improved a lot! To say so honestly, I don't have any art from wehn I first started, but rather the year after. Looking back at those drawings I first made, I kinda hate them. :D But for some reason I kinda laugh and smile whenever I see them. This makes me want to improve and push myself more.

It's so fun looking at where you started through to where you are now, and you can not only see how much you improved but what fandoms you were into at the time xD But it's a great motivator looking at this to show how vastly someone can improve! I can't wait to see the next years to come <3

(I improved so much that I hated all my previous work)

You are really good! I'm going to try my hardest to be as good as you! I got my scanner to work so I can post more of my art on to the computer!
I'm 15 right now, and my art is getting better! I haven't posted some of my better art yet, but I will. I want to get as good as you, before I become 22. I'm going to favorite this picture to remind me of this ambitious goal! This will inspire me to get better.
Thank you for posting this.
