How similar are your current drawings to those you did as a child?
My work today is vastly different from what came before I went to art school, and my work from my childhood and teens is unrecognizable to me.
Progress is the mark of a creator, anyone who stagnates is only doing work.
Completely different. I sucked at drawing as a kid, I only mildly suck at drawing now.
I seem to develop in a way where I start in a certain way and then years later I can draw parrells with the point I have travelled to, and the place where the creative process started. My current illustrations have very clear connections to the scribbles and scrawls I did as a child and when I first learnt about graffiti writing. The abstract nature of my taste I feel has always been present in the presentation of my techniques.
I had some formal art training and I've unfortunately lost some of ease and naivety of my early drawings.
Not very I don't think? Although I maybe there are similarities I don't see. Certain obsessions seem to be carried through life, and I'm sure that will affect my visual style.
The subject matter has barely changed. As a child I drew dinosaurs and monsters and that's still my preferred subject matter now!
Obviously my style has refined and techniques improved but the basic style is still recognisable as belonging to the same person spanning three decades!
I guess during my studies my style kind of disappeared for a while, as I was exploring many possibilities given by the different techniques. Now I am using that knowledge to dig into what really is my way of drawing and building images, and the younger illustrator in me comes out.
It seems that illustrating makes me younger in a way.
very, very similar, just more directed
in my opinion, they look the same, just technically better.
They have some similarities. I still like to draw slime monsters and fat people. But I guess they're not all that much alike anymore.
I suppose you could say they have the same sort of happy energy, but once I discovered "manga" style in my middle school years, I began to attempt more realistic anatomy and poses. As of now, my drawings are a mish-mash of cartoony wobbliness and more realistic characters.
A bit maybe, but not that much.
Pretty similiar in a way but hopefully more improved (I would hope!)
