Traditional

I'm most used to pencil and ink, so that's most often where my improvements can be seen first. My style has been fairly consistent over the years. I've also used colour pencils, watercolours and markers. The biggest digital additions are cleaning up smudges and fixing lines and colours.

Mixed

Digitally coloured and modified pencil drawings were long my favourite method. Later I've moved to redrawing and colouring ink drawings.

Digital

These pictures have no traditional drawing as a base at all or so little of the original trditional drawing left that they can be considered fully digital.



1998
This is one of the very first pictures of humans I drew.

1999
Everything is a bit better than last year. Foreheads were still tiny and the anatomy and perspective were borked. At least I was willing to draw humans and backgrounds.
<img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/19990000gp_mbnet.gif> <img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/19990605-06bwaa_mbnet.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/19991204kadulla_mbnet.gif>



2000
I learned a tiny bit about shading. I learned to draw bigger foreheads, but seemed to not realise that the skull should be mostly round or that the forehead shouldn't be bigger than the skull.
<img0*100:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20000403ts_mbnet.gif> <img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2000042830salpotk_mbnet.jpg>



2001
I learned to draw teens and anatomy improved. The forehead surrounded by hair doesn't extend (much) beyond the skull anymore.
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2001017-18xkids_mbnet.gif>
In upper comprehensive school, I saw a new way of colouring with coloured pencils. I never really learned it but I still try.
<img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20010715kks_mbnet.jpg> <img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2001242531kymak_mbnet.jpg>
2001
My first try wasn't much: playing with brightness and colorization.
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20011104kyatz_mbnet.jpg>



2002
I learned some shading and anatomy improved a lot.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020101kydre_mbnet.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020301-02kapina_mbnet.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20021012kkk_mbnet.gif>
2002
Then I started learning about other tools and smudging.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020323ram_mbnet.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020604gaa_mbnet.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020725et_mbnet.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020810vvc_mbnet.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20021108jackandkim_mbnet.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20021108marrow_mbnet.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20021222ckim_mbnet.jpg>
2002
It began with layers, darken, lighten and smudge.
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020326d_mbnet.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20020809kapina_mbnet.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20021129kerritziei_mbnet.jpg>



2003
I mostly drew just people but when I drew backgrounds, I tried to improve. Perspective was still rather off, though it had gotten better.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20030506070809ktmt_mbnet.gif> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20031208_torni.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2003081112kkkrsf_mbnet.gif>
Anatomy improved more still.
<img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20030118kim_mbnet.gif> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20031209TMTKim.jpg>
2003
And layers...
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20030101gkc_mbnet.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20030305kai_mbnet.jpg>
2003
So it continued, but vectors were nice and clean too.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20030421kim_mbnet.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20030923_THOH_KKKRfood.jpg>



2004
Most of my stuff always looked almost as messy as this comic. I also learned patience, but I had little clue how to imply distance in drawings.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2004080102_THOHsarjis_2103010405%20Kinian.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2004112713_THOH_KKKSKMp.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040212_THOH_Kim.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040404_L_Ktelor.jpg>
I discovered brush pens and realised that an ink drawing could be complete too.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2004032629_XRP_Kaider.gif> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040930_RoL_Tylien.gif>
2004
Great leaps.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040207_THOH_KK.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/200410031_RoL_Tylien.jpg>
2004
And so it began continued...
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040827_kirja_TLHoD2.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2004120702_RoLA_TV.jpg>
2004
Vectors, starscapes, digital lineart and a picture that was extremely pleasing to my eyes for three years.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040225_THOH_KKKK.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040624_t%25E4hti%25E4.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040712_LoZ_Sheik.gif> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/20040916_RPG_LVT.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2004112006_PS_GK.jpg>



2005
I got a bit better at shading, detail and anatomy.
<img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005040603_ROL_Vineg.jpg> <img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005053001_ROLP_Ajale.gif> <img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005091405_ROL_shadowwarrior.gif> <img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005042402_ROL_Tylien.jpg> <img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005021004_ROL_Vineg.gif>
I didn't yet realise that the perspective was off whenever people were in an environment
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005011201_THOH_RMV.gif>
2005
New coloring techniques.
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005010510_THOH_KKKSKMp.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005041901_ROL_Vineg.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005080401_ROL_Vineg.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005111805_ROL_windbearer.jpg>
2005
Perspective and poses!
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005081302_LOZ_Sheik.jpg> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2005082702_THOH_Kimvekadrei.gif>



2006
I learned facial shapes a bit better and how to do at least slightly different kind of characters intentionally. Most of my drawings were simple sketches.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2006022201_NG_Hauteur.gif> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2006111103_TFK_Tegafel.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2006092801_ROL_Camus%20ja%20Vineg%20D.gif> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2006123104_R_overweight.gif>
Characters interacting with the background still cause trouble.

2007
I got better at drawing different characters.
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007111601_TFK_Gaoveel%20ja%20perhe.png> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007122203_TFK_KrezagonAntonSorifelPouttelRiyhneon.png> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007073104_R_future.gif> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007122501_TFK_femehancreation01.png>
I was somewhat frustrated with the brush pens since they weren't fine enough, so I abandoned them and just thickened the lines manually.
<img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007062702_THOH_Kydre.gif> <img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007073101_R_ice.gif> <img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007112407_TFK_KrezagonTegafelLeitselArikeAvailonTaikehelRiyhneon.png> <img150*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007120501_TFK_AvailonTarkavinel.png>
2007
Then it sort of faded. It took too long.
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007071102_HM_Kereko.jpg> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2007101602_kirja_TLHOD.jpg>
2007
I'm very proud of these.

2008
I think I started getting the human form down but there were still issues. The interaction between character and background got a bit better.
<img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2008021202_TFK_Krezagon.png> <img200*0:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2008030802_kirja_TLHOD.png> <img0*150:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2008040901_THOH_RonjiTikekean.png> <img0*150:stuff/2008061303_TFK_Arike.png> <img0*150:stuff/2008123101_R_olio.png> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2008030403_TFK_SorifelKrezagon_.png> <img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2008032401_TFK_KrezagonHavyrmeon.png>
Perspective was still off, but the fixed results didn't look better to me.
<img0*200: stuff/2008120305_H_AnnaIAntonioIArikadi.png> <img0*200:stuff/2008120501_H_AnnaIAntonioIArikadi.png>

2008
New tools, new methods and apparently realistic colors!
<img0*200:stuff/z/57/Veltzeh%2527s%2520progress/2008021208_TFK_Tegafel.jpg>



2009
I tried to draw more dynamic characters and succeeded somewhat. I also got better at different characters.
<img0*150:stuff/2009013002_TFK_KrezagonTegafel.png> <img0*150:stuff/2009013005_TFK_KrezagonTegafel.png> <img0*200:stuff/2009021404_PF_Valax.png> <img0*200:stuff/2009052501_THOH_Kimvekadrei.png> <img0*200:stuff/2009102002_TFK_Krezagon.png> <img0*200:stuff/2009102201_TFK_Krezagon.png> <img0*200:stuff/2009110201_TFK_KrezagonTarkavinelRiyhneonTegafelSoripelLeitselTrykinerAvailon.png> <img0*200:stuff/2009020601_TFK_mil001.png> <img200*0:stuff/2009102401_TFK_RiyhneonKrezagonTarkavinel.jpg>

2010
There were some improvements in anatomy and shapes.
<img0*200:stuff/2010021301_TFK_falangezka.png> <img0*200:stuff/2010021303_TFK_karangal.png> <img0*200:stuff/aj/57/1272132568.png> <img0*200:stuff/aj/57/1274803977.png>
I finally practised still lives and disliked it. There were also perspective and gesture practices.

2010
<img0*200:img/photo/57_1264880980.jpg>



2011
I got still better at different faces and body types. Now larger errors were mostly me being lazy rather than not knowing that there was something wrong.

2011-06-24 [Stephen]: You should update this!

Your drawing has vastly improved over the years. x)

2011-06-24 [Veltzeh]: I think I will. Remind me in a month if I haven't done it. :P

I think that my development hasn't been very impressive these last years though.

2011-06-24 [Stephen]: I'll try to do that... xD


Well, once you start to get good, the visible progress becomes harder to see, but it's also kind of nice to just look at good pictures and see how your style on them has changed. xD

2011-06-24 [Veltzeh]: Indeed it is.

2012-10-14 [Stephen]: Yay, update. :3

2014-07-12 [Stephen]: I'm reminding you to update this again. xD

2014-07-12 [Veltzeh]: I reeeeeally need to draw a better picture of one of my characters.

2014-07-16 [Stephen]: Then do eeet!

2015-05-21 [Stephen]: You've still not updated this. :3

2015-05-22 [Veltzeh]: Remind me after uh, five months. I'm insanely busy. I also haven't drawn much anything lately. :(

2015-05-30 [Stephen]: Insanely busy? Sounds fun.. :P

You should draw more!
