NS_ Summary of Art 2011 by NasikaSakura NS_ Summary of Art 2011 by NasikaSakura
Blank meme: [link] (I like this year's presentation better. :) )

I thin this year marked a large growth in not only my artistic ability, but also my artistic impressions, use of emotions in my art, and change as a person myself. This was indeed an important year for me. :meow:

This was also the year of emergence of my DigiChibis (December) and my obsession with creating art to music to improve the quality as well began to sink its claws into me.

You've really grown since I knew you in middle school. I remember you teaching me how to draw an animal nostril. Your art is so full of emotion, and you have such a whimsical style. I agree with the suggestion to work on anatomy, but you've actually got that down pretty well. Usually your "mistakes" are sacrifices for your style. Still, it's something to think on. Keep up the great work!

Thank you so much, darling. QuQ (I always love your constructive comments. :heart: ) Ah, I can barely remember that! XD But I do! Wow~! Memories~~ haha Aww, thank you. I've been focusing a lot on anatomy this year and this morning I was actually comparing anatomy on a piece I've been working on and altering since Summer, and was shocked. XD (I can't wait to finish and post the final product. <3 ) Yes, and I think you made a point about the sacrifices for my style now that you mention it-- like my style for noses. XD It's something I'm proud of because it's literally a style all my own and I find it characteristic to my art, even though I've had complaints about it before. Oh, well!! XD I'm happy with it! That's what matters. :meow:

I didn't have very much art in September, so it was a choice between this or the Ask Me Meme promotional drawing. :heart: I was torn between the two but considering my main adoration of the Ask Me Meme picture was the face and hair, not the rest of the picture (eye and coloring style), I sided with 'comfy' because I felt I grew more as an artist both from making that picture and as depicted in it-- movement of material, posing, skin tones, and experimentation with hair style.

I see, sill it is the piece that I'm the most uncomfortable to look at from all of yours

Hmm. I find that odd. XD I would think it'd be the second, as compared to a different deviation. I understand why people are a little uncomfortable with this one (ironic to the name, I just realized stupidly OTL ), but still it's pretty innocent in reality. I mean, all she's doing is examining the shirt (and those are shorts, not panties; I SUCK at drawing shorts because I don't wear them but at night time in pajamas, and even rarely then >____> ).

Really? Aww~! What a doll~! QwQ Give her a big, tight huggle for me! XD :glomp:
I'm still actually working with colors. ^^; I just got some professional colors to try skin tones with so that I can keep consistent with them. They're something new to get used to though but I'm slowly transitioning into more professional mediums. :3
I've been trying so much with anatomy. lol Hopefully in the next two years with college body-study in art, I can improve among professionals (without the awkwardness of asking my father the differences between male and female body structure OTL ).

LOL XD I have two friends like that too. The older one is taking anatomy classes with live nude models, but the other one is too squeamish. So, the older one brings her pictures that she took a sharpie and blacked-out and censored the genital regions. XDDD (Keep in mind, they are both of proper age.) And she gives her *ahem* underwear model pictures as well. XD lol

hahahahahahha lol. I dunno how would I take see a naked model in front of me...sometimes it scares me. The other day i was checking "thevishiestudio" photos here in DA and there are a lot of handsome men there, and I spent like 15 minutes saying, Wow, nice anatomy references, I could pracice backs here....another 20 minutes later I stopped and facepalmed: I'm looking at handsome guys saying they're good anatomy reference I'm a fail as a women.

LOL You and me both! XDD
lol There's not really much mystery to nudity for me though, since I was very little. Since my father's an artist I've seen his nude sculptures and such my whole life and have even met a few of the models. Of course he stopped taking me after he thought I'd remember too much. XD Besides, I'm a fan of modesty, yet I also see a body as just a body. And there is such a thing as artistic nudity (which many people are taking advantage of lately, especially on Da, to justify their more sexual or suggestive snapshots).

I think it's like when my bro found the pictures and I told him: before you scream I want you to know, there's a difference between artistic nudity and porn and this is art =-=
