1993-2011 - Nineteen years of art by Gold-Seven 1993-2011 - Nineteen years of art by Gold-Seven
I've been tempted for years to do one of those, but they never really went far enough back for an old geezer like me. :D Luckily, =Kamaniki's inferface was fully customizable so I could combine years.

Here's the the last nineteen years of art... and to the next! :)

A lot of stuff on there that I bet I've never shown before. :D

Your art has always blown me away over the last 5 years. It's always reassuring to see that there's hope and a reason to keep pushing on.

If you don't mind me asking, what would you say helped you improve the most? (referring now to your other post about your friend with the Elfquest sketches). Taking courses or simply just continuing to draw regularly?

It was drawing regularly (which I'd always done), plus the great boost I got when I drew from photos. I'd done this every now and then in the early nineties, then went back to drawing almost exclusively from memory - and then had one or two years in the late nineties when I drew from photos excessively (in my Star Wars phase). That gave me the real kick.

I didn't take any classes until the early two thousands, and even then, it was only three or so. Plus hanging out in a lot of forums with great advice.
Maybe if I work at it for 90 years or so I might be as good as you. ;) Thank you so much for the advice! :)

this is fascinating - thanks so much for sharing!
Seeing your progression through the examples you've provided here has really given me more drive to improve myself... Thank you for sharing this; I'm sure you have been a great inspiration to many other aspiring artists as well. :)
"Tell ev'rebody I'm on my waaay... cuz' I'm surely stuck crying heeere" I know that's not the lyrics but that's cool anyway because I've done it ! Haha !

Ow, that's really, reaaally cool.. I mean, geez even in years I haven't been able to have at least a little change in my own way of drawing, I don't remember what we where fed with back in the 90's but I'm sure it was nice for drawing skills x)

I love how your digital draws are still really light, like watercolor paintings !

aaaaaaaaa, I love your Chewbacca! (oh, I'm sorry, I love Star Wars so much, eeeeeh :D :D)

Well, It's amazing, how you improved, now, you're one of best artisth who I know. Did you learn it by yourself?
Gold-Seven Jun 20, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes, I did :)

You're awesome! :dalove:
You don't even know how much boost (boom and wham!) you gave me with this piece (or rather: pieces). I mean, you're one of my favourite artists here and seeing how, well, humble your beginnings were - it's just gave me the nudge and motivation to work on my, ekhm, so-called "art".

Ridiculous as it sounds, I always believed that artists are people who could always draw/paint/etc. really well and they make almost no progress throughout their lives - well, develop their style, some details, but their works are and were always equally pretty, so there's no point in me trying - so I am now moving my lazy ass and perhaps will get enough courage to publish something here soon.

Anyways - thanks for this, and all your art, which I love!
