03-09 Improvement Meme by Nambroth 03-09 Improvement Meme by Nambroth
Okay so a few things:

1. Seeing the majority of the other submissions for this meme has made me feel really old. Reading about how most of you were in high school, or middle school (or GRADE school for a few) in 2003 made me go :O because I had been done with and not thinking about High School for some years by 2003.

2. By 2003 I had already been doing art 'seriously' for um.. at least 6 years I think. So I was already well onto my 'style' so I am not really sure if you are going to see MIND NUMBING improvement here. XD

3. This is in my scraps because it's just like... a college of a few pieces in my main gallery. Really you can find it all there.

4. I was really tried when I worked on this. When I say "FAR LEFT" in the descriptions, I mean "FAR RIGHT".... geez. You can laugh at me. XD

5. My Parrot won't stop honking. Please send help.

Didn't know parrots could honk. (Mine just make loud noises, or talk to the dishwasher.)

Btw, the parrot done in 2009 is absolutly georgeous.

I know what you mean about the age thing. I see artists whose work I enjoy and when I discover how old they are and that they are doing art full time, I'm blown away. Some are lucky enough to start early and follow their dream. Others struggle and make it later in life. I think the point would be to never give up your dream. I looked right too, instinctively, though the far left would make a decent cover too. Sorry, I can't help with the parrot. My cockatrice would scream through his cover so I have no idea how to get them quiet. lol

(blinks, re-reads) You know... you did say "far left", but my eyes jumped to the far right without a pause, oddly enough. I've been admiring your work for years before I joined dA.

...maybe it's because I'm tired and =I= should go to bed...! Hey, it's only 4:45am where I'm at.

What a wonderful thing to do. I hadn't thought about that but I see a big change in myself in just this first year of doing photography so I can't imagine what it will be like after so many. I definitely see a shift in your work in the last two years and you've got a lot of finer detail in it. 2009 in particular appeals to me because of the realism and how precise the light is in them. All the best in the year to come!

You're in good company. You and I are actually the same age, so I feel the same way when I see all these people commenting on being in grade school back then.

If it makes you feel any better, I was in my second year of college in 2003. So, you've only got a couple of years on me ;)

Loving the realism in your wildlife art lately, btw :heart:

Don't feel too bad, I'm still three years older then you.

Personally, this looks like a lot of fun, and I keep thinking I should try it. Then I realize I'm a terrible artist and I probably wouldn't even have enough work to fill in the boxes.

And, sorry, I have my own squwaking parrot to deal with.

If it makes you feel any younger, I've been doing art seriously and for money for about ten years. Wow, saying that makes me feel old. Most of my traditional art isn't in my gallery due to size and lack of a scanner.
I would love to have your mastery of light and shadow. I guess it's back to the practice board for me!

Heh, I spent so long being like "You know, the one on the right looks an awful lot like a book cover, I don't know about this crow business O.o"

Should have read your info first XD Would have saved myself confusion.

And as with everyone, this is quite a testament to your continued quality and awesome. Keep rockin' out!
