I remember waaaayyyy back when I was a kid-- or even a teenager-- or heck, even last year-- and looking at really good artwork and thinking, I'll never reach that level in my art. I always knew I could improve, and I always believed that I would be happy with my artwork, and that has always remained true. However, I have surprised myself with the amount of progress I've made in only the last two months.
Now when I look at professionally drawn or animated art, I still get that feeling that it would never be possible to expand my art talents that far... but I no longer believe it.
And knowing that is a pretty good feeling. :)
By the way, I'm uploading artist's resources on DeviantArt, so if you want to use my lineart, backgrounds, or other resources, please visit http://kitti606.deviantart.com/ and remember to follow the rules of use posted with them. I took down the lineart I had on here and moved some of my pictures around for the sake of neatness. (Also, I mysteriously had some of them miscategorized, so I've fixed that.)
