improvement meme by napoleoman improvement meme by napoleoman
blank version of meme here: [link]

This was actually very good for me to do. Ive been in an art rut lately, not producing much. Looking back on how much I have advanced is making me look to the future with excitement :)

This also reinforces to me why I dont really believe in talent. I mean... I was doodling in sketchbooks up until 4 years ago. It has taken hard work to get where I am now, not some innate talent or anything like that. I just fell completely in love with drawing and so did it all the time.

Moral of the story: Do what you love; you are bound to eventually excel at it :)

I think it is a type of print-making paper... I use it for drawing all the time because I love the color and tooth on it!
