My art didn't change much but I feel better about it than I used to : p I can look at it now and think "I'm proud of that." I haven't done that in years xD

I started off hating everything I did, but determined to make it better by the end. Then I did study after study in hopes that it would stick. I think some of it did by September!:D

I voted the top one. It has been a good year, especially as I see where I came from in 2011 and where I stand now in 2013...!! I made a sort of 2012 year overview :)

"It wasn't really that great; there's a lot of things on which I could've worked harder." I submitted a lot of photography in 2012 and a few art pieces worth a mention, but my writing was practically non-existent and my art was few and far between. Another problem I had from 2010-2012 is spending 50+ hours on a single artwork. :stare: And don't get me started on how much time I take for my writing, even a single one-shot (more than 100 hours I can't even). :faint: Which is also why I don't have an art summary for 2012. :(

So far in 2013, I'm improving greatly. I've completed and submitted 5 artworks/photos/stories in 7 days, and I'm averaging 10-20 hours a piece. I hope to keep this kind of pace throughout the year (at least 1 or 2 submissions a week) and if you ask this question again at the end of this year, I hope to be answering the most positive one, "It was awesome! I learned and accomplished a lot this year." ;)

I think 2012 was amazing for my art improvement! I really feel I get better after every drawing I do. Specially considering I don't even draw that much XD

This year I tried much harder to get into backgrounds; it's really difficult, but I feel I'm getting somewhere :3 I also experimented with a new (to me) way of shading, using the marker tool, and also got into lineart-less paintings and pixel art! So I can say I tested out a lot of new things on 2012, and I'm happy with what I've learned from each one of them >w<

Here's my art summary: [link] (:

Got my first camera. Ever. I've been doing a lot of stuff I didn't actually know I could do, like PS and I started learning how to use my cousin's digital tablet. For someone who hasn't done much art since 2010, it was a very productive year, I guess :)
