Draw It Again by AmukaUroy Draw It Again by AmukaUroy
So I got a comment on my DA profile linking me to my very first and very old DA account :iconakuma-yoru: [Please don't go look, it's very embarrassing] , and I was glancing through my old artworks and I stumbled upon this great piece.

Left piece from 2007ish and remake 2013.

BACKSTORY: I never went to art class [still haven't, unless you count art history an art class], and none of my friends drew, so it was pretty much me and myself. Soooo, for the longest time I penciled my art and then colored it with colored pencils and then one magical day I had the idea that "If you INK the drawing first, then it becomes much smoother and easier to color" HUZZAH.

So I drew the great piece on the left and was SO SO SOOOOOOOO proud of it at the time, and now...

WOW, I remember when you didn't use computers to draw. I kind of miss your old work. :) But you have improved so much since then...I on the other hand, since I don't draw anymore...not much has changed. LMAO.

Your older artwork has a charm that I like about it xD Sucks about the standard seme/bishie face though haha. It's great to see your progress though! You've definitely improved in those five years c:

Those faces that a lot of pretty boys have; narrow eyes somehow filled with a deep emotion such as sorrow or loneliness, angular chin, smirk, those things xD

I know what you mean about the lack of an art class. Everything I've accomplished is likewise self-taught. I rather like the one on the left to be honest. It's got this edgy roughness that makes it seem more wild.

I like how you have your own style now ^-^ I can easily distinguish your drawings from anyone else's, which is one of the things I love about you and other artist's I follow's works.

Ah... I remember when I discovered the whole inking thing... Man, do I feel dumb thinking back at it now. >o<

But I've gotta admit, after all these years I look back at your old account and remember how you personally inspired me to begin drawing my own comics. They were pretty pathetic compared to yours, but it was the start of my path to drawing anime. I was in 6th grade back then.

Now I'm a Junior in high school and still look at your drawings for inspiration or your comics when I am having bad days. Sorry this comment is long but just wanted to say, thank you for being my role model and your art is just wonderful~!:iconloveloveplz:

Keep it up! :D

Nice lightings on the new one, man.
Tails aren't trendy anymore ?



(I also never went to an art class before, but I entered my current one 'cause it's the only way I would be able to get better enough to enter an animation school)

I understand the self taught stuff :iconimhorrifiedplz: I haven't taken an art class since elementary school, and I just got back into drawing a few years ago, and have just been self-teaching myself. Luckily I made some friends on Deviantart and they showed me the way on digital art :iconmingplz:

So you sir, are an inspiration to me and all self-teachers, :iconmingsaluteplz:

It's because...I guess we can see the effort and heart of the artist in every single line of the drawing? Like it feels more genuine and...I dunno...organic? Hard to describe but there's something about pencil drawings and the effort put into them that computer can't replicate. Not to say that your new drawing is bad or anything but I personally love drawings where people color them by hand and painstakingly make every detail.

For being only self-taught, this is really impressive. I've taken loads of art classes and haven't improved anywhere near as much as this. That's kinda disheartening. :<
