2003-09 Improvement Meme by blackstorm 2003-09 Improvement Meme by blackstorm
I'm so effing bored, and killed time playing around with this meme. I actually wasn't really intending to follow suit on this meme like some are, because I didn't make any major progress since 2004 (style wise, I mean. My style hardly changed throughout the years, regardless of the shift in fandoms) :|

Collage gave me little time to practice and such, and then all the stress coupled with it burned me out mentally and thus as a result I don't have the motivation to improve anymore...

'Nuff said *shrug*

Oh, it's from a seemingly old hair product ad I used to practice on as one of my art collage assignments back then.
Thanks! :heart:

I like your meme; it really shows off your talent and dedication.

And college can suck the life out of a rock, so don't stress yourself too hard. :)

You've made immense improvement!. I look forward to seeing how you do next year.
College kind of stunted my growth for awhile aswell, but since I don't go there anymore I've begun to get it back (thankgoodness!).

Wow, so interesting! When I first drew anime, it look lke crap! And I barely knew how to use composures, body proportions, etc. I still had the sketches but I don't know where it is, somewhere in the closet.

Anyway, you're better than me in realistic drawing, I hadn't draw that style in over two years.

Neema: Yeah, I bet you suck at it now!

Shut up, other me! Go back to bothering Grimm!

Grimm: get her away from me! She sucks as a fraccion!

Neema: No I don't! ^_^

You mean my anthro artworks? Yeah they're mostly related to an old 90s cartoon "Biker Mice From Mars", a childhood favourite.
