Sketch book complete! Retrospective

I finished my current sketchbook, yay! :D In celebration, I thought I would take the opportunity to look back at some of my other sketchbooks over the years.


These were done in 1992. I was 10 years old. My parents paid a family friend and artist to come to our home and tutor me in art. (Every young artist-to-be's dream come true!) These are some of the drawing I did during that year.


This was drawn in 1995 (I was 12 years old), during my 7 grade art class. I used either a magazine picture, or an old calendar as the reference for it.


A self portrait in 1997 (I was 15 years old), right after coming back from a school banquet (Translate, Christian school version of prom). It was late, thats why I think I look tired. :p


Another portrait, 1 year later (1998, 16 years old). And I think after anther school banquet! So weird that I would do that... I think it was because I was all dressed up and felt pretty.


In 1999 my family took a road trip around the western states (Wyoming, Colorado) and I took my sketchbook along. I think it was the first time I really seriously sketched the things I saw around me, and was please with how I was able to capture them.


A self portrait around 2000 (18 years old). I drew this picture when I was very upset about something. Luckily, I can't remember just what exactly. This was my senior year of high school/first year of college.


A ink sketch of my step-father Albert while he was preaching (just recently added the paint to it as a gift for my mother), and a dragon rummaging in my purse (also drawn during church...bad girl)

These are from some of the art classes I took my freshman year. Finally, my humans are really looking like humans...

Unfortunetly, after 2000 my sketchbooks became very neglected as I discovered PHOTOSHOP! Oh joy of joys. :D My sketching was mostly in the margins of my notes and on church bulletins (still a baaad girl). Here is one drawing from 2005 I did, a character design.


I hope you enjoyed this walk down memory lane!
