Improvement by LanieJ Improvement by LanieJ
I've been wanting to post one of these for ages, and *frosstbutt's post just reminded me of it. :XD:
Here's something to cheer me up! This is how much I've improved in a year! Obviously the picture on the right is not my best work. It has next to no shading or line variation, but oh well. You still get the idea. I'll do a draw-this-again thing sooner or later. I've gotten a LOT better with facial structure and anatomy, although, again, the most recent picture is not the best example of this. Also, I've gotten a lot better at... hair and eyelashes. And eyes in general. And backgrounds, but AGAIN, not the best example.

Anyway, can you guys see the improvement? I definitely can!

Art and Lanie :iconlaniej:

LOTS of practice!! I try to draw something every day and regularly study anatomy and movement in lions in particular!

Back the heck up, how on earth did you improve that much in a year!?!?
You managed to achieve a sound grasp of anatomy, a personalised style and worked out how to manage colour (which is tricky as all hell) to near atmospheric perfection.

what sorcery is this :iconzomgplz:

:XD:!!! Thank you!! Trust me, I had the same exact reaction when I compared the two. I didn't think I'd improved at ALL until I actually put the two side by side!!

Well you certainly and undeniably have! And at impressive lengths. A definite watch from me. Did you just draw lions continuously for a year? xD

LanieJ Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you, again!! :D And oh man, pretty much. :XD: I really don't draw much else! I've been so continuously swamped with commissions (which is my own fault) with lions as the subject matter that I almost had to!

And the first one is very nice, actually, and also, it somehow reminds me of a grumpy cat xD The new one is so full of.. pure emotion.

Lanie, this is great! You're a real idol/inspiration to me, Because I'm also a mouse artist. I find that your drawings give me an idea of what someone like me is capable of - even without the fancy gadgets <3
