2016 Art Summary by ThatCreativeCat 2016 Art Summary by ThatCreativeCat
literally stoked to bring you this years art summary! i didn't improve much at all this year, but when i go back to look at my 2014 summary it literally warms my heart to see me here. 

gotta point out this year i completely converted to tablet, photoshop and medibang

so thus comes the anual ramble which no-one reads but i still love to write ;v; this year i'll link to the pieces in the actual thing so you dont have to search if you feel like viewing the whole piece <3

January
don't actually have much to say here!! i was in australia for nearly all of this month, so i think this was the only thing i drew that month when i came back. obviously pretty stylistically wacky and anatomically atrocious, hah. this year was literally my year of shading/style experiments tbh

February
Squished out some drawings and experiments before school began to get too hectic on me aah. I had liked this drawing at the time. currently not so much lol but i had considered it a successful experiment. my february anatomy reeeeally bugs me lmao

March
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I'VE DRAWN ALL YEAR AND I'M STILL STANDING BY IT TBH. i was so happy with this one piece but i cant replicate the shading style i tried out which makes me salty. looking back the anatomy was pretty flawed but now that i can see it i mustve improved because when i drew this i was like 'oh my god. this is the best thing i ever have and ever will make.' but yeah, march. i pooped some crap out and honestly everything else i drew in march was CRAP this was the one good thing

April
ahh, april. aka the return of the squid art obsession. A lot of squids came out of this month, needless to say. inklings was my one way to work on my human style so i used it as a motive. so i didn't really experiment, until this piece!! i adored lucky's design for lilac so much and i wanted to try some new things so this thing was born. i honestly... didn't like it very much. still dont lOL but yeah, only decent thing from april that isnt a squid.

May 
THIS! THING! HERE! IS! THE! BEST! THING! THIS! YEAR! I wanted so badly to make a gift for lucky that'd blow her away so i decided frick it imma paint. and boi i did and i was so happy with myself but honestly the anatomy is so ugly. but- i am still so glad because i got so much experience from this piece. so after this i got super confident and drew some things i was super happy with in may. may was a good, content, pure art month. its hard for me to be satisfied so it honestly said a lot lol

June
where did i go in june? i flitted away from the universe. bye. nah but i think school got a little wHEW OKAY in june so i cut down on art significantly. i drew this for tris and the only thing i liked about it was the eyes lol. but yeah, didnt get out much in june. still experimenting with style and shading so thats cool.

July
LUCKY!!! VOLTRON!!! EVERYTHING!! THIS MONTH,, was a very happy month. me and lucky got together >:3 and i got introduced to voltron which multiplied my previous motivation to draw humans by 1000 because i love lance. this drawing! i loved and still do because this character has got to be one of my favourites in existence and it was suCH a joy to draw her. SO pretty. a little style tweaking and shading stuff occurred which was pretty nice.

August
what a full month! like how the hell did i get the time to draw this much?? i got ahead on school work, go me! but honestly i drew a lot of fanart!! a trashy month!! best experiment award goes to this picture, which i had the absolute most fun drawing. god it was fun. fanarrrtttttttt. better anatomy woowoowoo

September
literally my favourite stylistic painting i've ever done! not much art this month- fanart for adventure time which made me super emotional lol, and squad art for my salty squiblings squad; amazing friends. my art this month was fairly lazy asides from this piece, i think mock exam hell was a thing so i slowed my experimentation. love this painting, wish i could still paint like this. ill figure out how i did it someday loL, started using photoshop exclusively, rip medibang

October
BOI i experimented with painting this month!! i really like the texture of this piece tbh although the anatomy in october was . awful lol. a bIG improvement from the beginning of the year, however!! not too much else to say. i want to use textury stuff more often though. i shou l  d

November
EXAMS EXAMS EXAMS LITERALLY 2 DRAWINGS THIS MONTH EXAM HELL BYE. my style began finally reaching what i've been hoping for? this piece was really anatomically gross, severe art block but i literally pushed myself to squeeze it out so i wouldnt feel like an awful friend lmao. i liked how the face came out so thats a plus? just. ignore the body loL. this month i only drew birthday presents. im so salty that so many of my friends have birthdays during exams?? i want to draw for u guys but holy heck. no time

December
FINALLY getting happy with my style!! i really like how this series came out!!! which is good because i really wanted to draw something special for lucky! the anatomy and style is just generally so much better which makes me so glad. im actually becoming satisied with my style for the first time in ... ever?? i've even worked on beginning to add in backgrounds more often this year which! is super good because i never did last year or the one before lol.

OVERALL YOU CAn tell i am becoming so much more confident and positive in my art! clearly not much improvement and still a long way to go, however im really excited for the future and i cant wait to keep drawing and experimenting!!

Oh yeah! I shade my drawings using my mouse just cause it's more precise, but for the actual drawing part I can't stand doing it with a mouse! XD

I love your August art, out of these I think that one and October's were the best(in my opinion) and I still do like your newest but I think your August and October pictures that you fit on here...fit me(??) what I mean by that is that I think that's just how I like things drawn? ^^ I hope that wasn't weird XD I love this tho!! Good work!!
