old artwork, lawl.

Sun Aug 13, 2006, 8:47 AM
prepare to be either entertained or disgusted, or both. i found a box with my old diaries and sketchbooks in the basement the other day, containing tons of my old artwork, and it sucked so painfully much that i had to share it with the dA crowd.

i drew this when i was 12, so 8 years ago. for some reason i thought this fur-coat-clad character was awesomely cool and i used to draw her on everything i owned. all my friends liked it too, so either they were blind or too nice to tell me that it is, in fact, kind of scary.

this page out of my sketchbook is also from about 8 years ago. in retrospect i find my choices of subject matter to be rather bizarre. apparently the things that interested me at the time included a pen, tipp-ex, a creepy face, and ronaldo.

this is from when i was 13, where, in a blatant attempt to suck up to my social studies teacher, i drew a picture of napoleon on my homework assignment. the homework assignment itself is also amusing, because it includes the sentence: "not many people would go, 'let's vote to give napoleon power over the entire nation of france!'" i was a very logical person.

this is from when i was 15, so 5 years ago. it's supposed to be fleur delacour but it looks more like a tranny.

this is also when i was 15. zomg anime eyes!!!1 this is seriously ugly as sin.

this is from when i was 16 and decided to stop drawing mouths and eyebrows. i guess you can consider it a phase of my artistic genius: where picasso had a blue period, i had a no-mouths-and-eyebrows period.

mouths and eyebrows made a return later on, with the new addition of bizarre floppy ears and gigantic foreheads.

this is an oekaki i did when i was 17, so three years ago, when the dodge and burn tool were pretty much the only tools i used. i found it in my old freewebs account (freewebs is soooo passe now). there's supposed to be a flame coming from her fingertip but unfortunately it looks more like a goatee of some kind.

and here's one of my first oekakis i did with a tablet. clearly i was overjoyed that i could now make scribbly lines. hooray!

it's always amusing how i'm convinced of my own talent at the time, but upon looking back, i discover that i did, in fact, suck. at least i have something to laugh at! ha! ha!
ok well that's all folks. if you have any amusing old art to link up to, do tell.

As I am Brazilian, seeing that Loish once had drawn Ronaldo is terribly amusing. So random! :lol:

It's always interesting to see artists' evolution along the years... Cool to see how you experimented with so many styles before landing on your current one :) And it just becomes better and better! :D

Wow..That's so depressing. You're early teen year pictures are stack loads better than mine..and I'm older now than you were when you drew them. ;-; But whatever. Good for you. =P
