Ten Years by gabbyd70 Ten Years by gabbyd70
My mom found one of my old sketch books today from 1999 :XD: and the drawing on the left was a little gem I found in there lol :lmao:

I drew the one on the left at age 9 and the one on the right at age 19 last year. The first was drawn from my imagination with crayons and the second is of Hayley Williams and made with soft pastels. :)

So this is the 10 year progress I’ve made. ;) and I hope to learn much more and grow as an artist!

4/22/2017 Edit- I'm now 26. I'm looking forward to seeing my growth once I hit 29. I think a lot has changed since I drew the second image! :)  I'll draw something similar again when I turn 29 in a few years ;)

That's such an encouraging picture for everyone to see.  Practice works!  Practice is magic!  Now if only practice could give me inspiration too... I can draw reasonably well, but I often can't think of any reason to do it  :( (Sad)

I was chuckling because your drawing on the left is so cute! The right is just remarkable!! At the same time proud for someone that is passionate of what she's doing. It's so touching to learn that you've grown so well and stayed committed to your passion which is really something hard to do i guess. For me maybe. haha. I also had been drawing since I was 2 years old oftentimes drawing mermaids. But stopped as I aged. Now that I'm 22, still didn't manage to draw a highly "world-class" mermaid as great as this! :D Recently, I've been trying to keep things up and restoring the time I have wasted in the past. Just trying to pay things forward in becoming the better version of me as an artist.
