2006-2015+ Progression by Rhyshian
2006-2015+ Progression
Amazingly, I managed to put this together without my hand twitching out of control after being on the mouse for too long. I almost feel normal.

This has been sitting around on my external since last December. Yeah. My procrastination is so bad, I put even time-sensitive material years past when they are actually due. As you can see, I use my tablet as often as I use the "Watch Later" function in YouTube--I use it once because I think it would be useful but then I forget it exists. I also have forgotten what color is. Can someone bring me back to the light.

2015 notes:
(1) A redraw of a character I've drawn before (and posted here). She looks radically different than what she once was. Good.
(2) A redesign of a character I've drawn before (but not posted here). Her hair is actually based on a GaiaOnline hairstyle.
(3) My first real attempt at drawing the male body with a reference. I'm not satisfied yet. His head is too big.
(4) My roommate and I challenged each other to draw our first original character but updated. I drew mine. The flow of the cloak was challenging and I wish I could show how it turned out, but the quality is bad.

If no improvement at all, at least I can at least say that my technology skills are acceptable. And by acceptable, I mean not at all, because every single one of those scans at the bottom was blurry.

(At least I have my good looks.)

Happy Holidays.


(EDIT: Also someone has pointed out that maybe updating the previous version of this would have been a good idea. To this, I say: damn. Why didn't I think of that? Well, too late now.)

(EDIT2: Is that shameless fanart that I have spotted in my update? Of course my fanart is one of the best pieces I've done... Why shouldn't I be so fortunate?)

Wow, hello.
It's been a while.

Truthfully, I am procrastinating on an analysis paper by writing this journal instead of honestly and willingly putting it to words, but I figured it might help me calm down and hype myself up by typing some things out, even if nobody will read them.

Long story short, it's been almost a year since the last time I updated my journal, and while that does not seem like a long time, it is particularly odd to me because once upon a time, I used to browse DeviantArt religiously. Not so much anymore, and that's quite obvious, seeing as I've had to dust off my deviations and vacuum up the cobwebs that have accumulated in my inbox.

I'm somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of work that I have had to do in the past year, and while it has been a great learning experience, I am ready to get back to taking drawing seriously. I want to learn. I don't want to stagnate. I've seen all of my friends from years past rocket up past the atmosphere and into the vastness of space whilst I'm still looking up longingly at the sky with my feet dug into the mud. So many of them have improved and improved much, and although I know I should not compare myself to them, I still can't whittle away the feeling of isolation, of being left behind.

I hope to share my progress here as I start to venture into putting effort towards my art. Things will be difficult, but––and I'm making this statement right now––I refuse to become lazy. I know I am better at that. I've gotten better at it this year by not putting assignments off until the last minute.

Well, I just wanted to get that off my chest. Aside from that, I've made a few new friends and I've made a really good friend in my roommate. I'm glad that we got the chance to be together. I don't know what I would do without her.


Thanks for listening to an old lady ramble.
I hope your lives are going well and that your joys are as numerous as the stars in the sky.


Until the days are hot and the schools are empty,
