Improvement Meme by escume Improvement Meme by escume
Revisiting the past is equal parts terrifying and amusing. I’ve seen these around before, and have always found it fascinating how people change. I’ve done a lot of that throughout the years! Though there’s a common thread of characters/portraits (particularly feminine), I’ve gone from pencils, to line art, to digital painting, to scary faces, to Dobby, to sparkles and back.

Not only are there previews here, but history is immortalized in the form of previous dA accounts. Yes I’ve been lurking here for quite a while! Not many people know about this account, but it’s where I used to post a lot of hp fanart - ~relashio. Even fewer people know about my first page - ~jirble. Though I’m hesitant to post them, I thought it might be interesting XD

Ahh, good times. Here’s to more mistakes, evolutions, revelations, and art to come!

Oh, I wish I had my art from when I was little! The earliest art I have of mine is from the 4th grade XD It's amazing to see your improvement over the years. An absolutely beautiful transformation of style!

pfft, slow start, yea right, your art style developed faster then picaso's (if that's a thing, if not, it should be).

Do you use references for the portraits?
Also, this was a complete ego kill. I am 17 and my artwork looks terrible compared to your amazing stuff at that age---I would have thought you'd have been far out of art college by then. So jealous. Haha

...You know looking at this... I think its about time I shake things up a bit and start trying different styles, maybe something more realistic, your art is amazing by the way and thanks for the inspiration.

It's fun to be experimental! I've gone through so many phases, though right now do enjoy painting more realistically. Good luck with your art :)
