These are so cool to look at! Everyone has improved so much.

I think stuff like this can really be an inspiration to's so funny because many times, especially when you're still young and learning, you think your latest work is just great. And then a few years pass by and you're like omg..this looks like trash! It's great to be able to look back on your stuff. I know some people who throw it all away because they think it's a shame because they won't have documented their progress.

Man...there are some SERIOUS, like, WORMHOLE jumps of improvement going on here...congratulation to everyone here, really. I think this thread is sort of a testament to the importance of having a community like this for the world. It is the end result of everything that has culminated since the beginning of the anatomy section here at cgsociety. I hope this thread stays around forever.

My improvement!

Though I definitely represent the absolute bottom of this community, I can at least brag of some heavy progress!
I discovered this place some time around April 2006, and after that I've been working hard trying to take my art to new levels. It's really just in the past few weeks I feel I've really gotten the hang on basic anatomy, and I'm looking forwards to work even more than before now. This is really beginning to get interesting, if not addicting... Yay. xD

Well, thanks everyone, for making this place such an awesome place of learning. I owe all my progress to you guys!

For a more in depth look, here's an overview of my whole progress through 2006. I'm impressed of my own improvement, really.

Give me five years, and we'll see if I can catch up with you!

Before (October 2005)

Attempted to use Painter and Photoshop to paint my brother from a photo.

Freehand sketch in one or both of these programmes, with painting done eyeballing colours.

Never finished.

After (today, February 5th, 2007)

Original image from the CG 15 minute sketch reference thread.

Painted in Photoshop - no initial sketch, just painting and colouring by eye.
