I thought it would be fun to show you my drawing progression over the last 9 months since I took my illustration class to quarantine!
This cat drawing is from when I first purchased an ink pen and Copic markers. I didn’t really know what to do with the markers, how to blend them, and I was using the wrong kind of paper. I also didn’t have many colors too work with, so I don’t blame myself too much for the choppy shading.
This one is a top to bottom comparison of how much my cat drawings have improved! (with bonus wizard hats thrown in). The ink lines on the ‘gamer’ cat aren’t very confident yet, and I was still figuring out how to blend and create marks. At least for this cat drawing, I was using marker paper and experimenting with blending more.
This bird drawing is from the beginning of quarantine when I started drawing more.
And these cuties are from a couple weeks into quarantine. Shading is smoother and the lines are more confident 🙂
I hope this shows how big of a difference 9 months can make in improving a skill. You can do it!
