Pencil Journey by Cataclysm-X Pencil Journey by Cataclysm-X
What more to say? This basically explains my whole process at deviantART. From the moment I created my username to the very last finished drawing I've posted a few weeks ago.

Can you recognize them all? :#1:

All of these drawings can be found in my gallery. I made a whole lot more, but clearly I couldn't put them all in this meme. Lots of other drawings and sketches of mine were never posted online either, mostly because they were commissioned drawings.

Hope you enjoy :giggle:

I'm gonna watch a football match on TV. GO NETHERLANDS.

its so cool to watch people progress. i'm not even as good as you were when you were 16, which was pretty awesome anyway ;)

2008 ! :'< it's sad when people doubt your talent, downright rude, must i say :iconsniffplz: i'm glad you haven't lost your drive but accepted it as a challenge, though.

you are a tough artist with a very big heart :"> you have inspired me so, thanks. may God bless you

Your work is amazing! My mouth fell open when I saw your latest drawings and I thought that I'll never be as good in drawing as you are. Now I'm looking what you created when you were 16 and thought that I draw about the same good as you then. And I'm 15. So I might have the chance. :D Anyway ALL your drawings are amazing!

HedKve94 Featured By Owner May 16, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't know what to say, other than the fact that you have a serious talent in drawing :la: Your drawings are incredible, and that you drew that well when you were barely 16... Unbelievable! I just wanted to be one of the many people who have told you how amazing you are as an artist, because you truly are! :D

hahaha damn man... u have some serious talent (as im sure u have heard a 1000 times lol) n the level of detail and realism in your drawings have grown from strength to strength. good job! :) n keep it up
DarkxNight Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Student General Artist
I love this, it's always so inspiring to see how artists have grown and how styles have changed over the years :)

I particularly like your drawings from games and such. Just curious, do you ever draw cartoons? (besides ff) I want to practice drawing more realistically, but I'm in love with manga/cartooning (as many are >.>) and can't seem to work on skill-building.
TigerLillyMuze Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2010

Always fun to see an artist's progress, but you were already pretty good in 2004, you should go further back! Show us the crappy stuff that makes us feel good about our skill level. xD

By the way, I think you mean "experiment" rather than "experience" (in two places).
