Draw this again meme - Little Navi style by shadowednavi Draw this again meme - Little Navi style by shadowednavi
"Oh, you were born with artistic talent!"
"You've always been that good at drawing!"
"I could never be that good"
"I suck at drawing, I can't do what you can do"

BULL. SHIT.

This is what ten years of busting my ass did for my art. Give it ten years (or maybe less, if you work more diligently than my lazy ass 8D) of working at it and see where you end up. Lord knows I'm still working at it. I can't wait to see where I'm at by the time I'm 33. And seriously. If I can do it, you can do it. The only thing stopping you is yourself.

Original picture done with Sharpie and Crayola colored pencils.
New picture done in Paint Tool SAI with Wacom tablet.

Truer words were never spoken. As long as you work hard on something, you will always get better!

Exactly, and it's impossible to become worse at something you continue putting effort into. ^^

The truth is that practice is the only thing that makes you better, and people hate to face long term sucking for eventual not sucking XD

Dude it's so true. Every time people tell me "Oh, I don't have time to practice", I show them my scribble wall. If it's something you want to do, you will either find or create the time to do it. And for me, an unhealthy amount of that turned out to be doodling in class 8D 8D 8D

So much improvement. I miss the Genki Dama in the original picture, though :p

LOVE the way her dress looks at the bottom in the new picture. Spectacular improvement!

Ohhh, you 8D **hug!** The genki dama was fine, it's the random weird black lines scattered throughout the sky as if that would signify sunlight. All it looks like is Navi bringing the meteors to the earth like some kind of apocalypse lady.
