Summary of Art 2013 by Bobdude0 Summary of Art 2013 by Bobdude0
It's been a total of a year and... 4 months? I think it's 4 months. That I've been drawing with the guys at /r/mlpdrawingschool. This year saw quite the improvement in my opinion.

Started making digital art this year with GIMP, looking back on those makes me feel pretty awful. Looks like I went to town in kidpix 5 or something. *cringes deeply*
Oh well, gotta start somewhere I guess. I think I'm pretty acceptable now at least!

This year marked my first EQD drawfriend (and a few more after that) as well as my first commission all of a week ago, hehe.
Other acheivements include that little Applebloom doodle of mine reaching 29k views. Yeah. imgur.com/BK7isAc Dat view counter. I still find it unbelievable reddit gave me such a big hug. It's too bad I linked it through imgur instead of DA :O (I think that kinda contributed to it's success though.)

Only thing I think I could have done differently is DRAW MOAR. I didn't draw nearly enough. Maybe a piece a month up until this month, I've caught a bit of an art bug lately. I really hope I don't lose it, but I don't think I'll have to worry much about it.
Other thing is draw different characters! I really need to vary it up. I have tons of sketches and stuff of other characters but no actual pieces. I need to change that. But Sweetie Belle, Applebloom, and Fluttershy are way too adorable, how could I not? At least I got all the mane 6 in that 100 follower piece. Which reddit also hugged me over, seriously what was that about?

Looking back on all this, I can't help but see all the things I need to improve on still. Volume, values, composition, color theory, contrast, oh my. I have oodles to work on yet. I'm excited to be working on them though. :) So for this coming year I'm hoping to really nail down some of that stuff, which is why I think I'm starting it off right by bailing on any real pieces and just concentrating on the fundamentals this first month of January. I'm also hoping to get a little more involved in the art community. Like more commissions and a stream or two here and there. Oh and I'm hoping to hit a couple conventions. (did I mention I'll be at bronycon 2014? I should have.)

Anyways, here's to another great year of ponies! Happy new year everyone. :D
