This is my entry to the "Draw This Again" contest!
Oh wow, where do I start?
The first art was made back in June 2006.
I remember I was just learning how to use Photoshop, this might be one of the very first in colors I even did! I still made my dolls like fashion dolls back then, courtesy of my university. Skinny, tall figures... lol!!
I had no idea how to make someone with accurate anatomy (hands, feet,WFT?), and was totally and completely dependant on pre-made brushes. Pen tool was my best buddy back then, since I didnīt even had a tablet... wow.
Second one was made tonight... more than 6 years later, 6 years of months and months of hard practice, going into the night (like today) just to learn the right way to shade, to light up.. I believe I still have a long way to go, but Iīm proud of how far Iīve come, since I learned everything on my own.
I finally could give her the starry skin that I couldnīt even imagine how to make before. haha!!
Since then I even started giving classes, and this kind of exercise makes me happy to show to my students, so that they can see they can also reach their potential with lots of hard work.
This art also blew a breath of fresh inspiration to me, since I have been feeling down and inspiration blocked since my computer crashed a few weeks ago, with no signs of coming back so soon... might have to buy a whole new one.
So, even if this doesnīt go far on the contest, I still had a wonderful, nostalgic time making her.
Thank you for reading and viewing!
