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!

I'm just listening to Siren and it's makes seeing your art even more aesthetically intensive. Beautiful!

Oh my gosh, what happened between 2008 and 2009?? There's so much improvement there. :faint:
Anyway, this is very, very inspiring! :love:

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

Everyone starts at different stages in their life! I have a faq for more info about my references and process if you're interested!
