drawings from 2000 by Wen-M drawings from 2000 by Wen-M
fanarts i drew for an old friend Jake.

Jake is recently going back to school and I both admire and envy that.

When I first looked at these old drawings, i was like :"holy-shate these are crap-tastic" and was ashamed that i gave these to him as gifts.

but i thought back and remembered that I both enjoyed drawing these and drew them with an honest heart to make a friend happy, i was able to accept these as "my drawings" again and i am no longer shame or feel that these are "crap"

You have improved since then. I can see why you look back at this drawing and think they're crappy (I feel mine are crappy as well even though I'm told they're not). How old were you at that time if I may ask? Did you just practice since then or follow some course to improve ?

yeah, there has been a lot of practice, and some learning from books and online. =D

I wouldn't agree that it is crap, since I have yet to achieve this level without references. Your work still deserves praise. :icongreatjobplz:

Those are awesome. I love the first... looks like 'The Crow'...
I have art from friends that think the same - since their skill has increased - of the works I own. I won't let them have them back... I love what I own from them. *smiles*

Do you remember how and why you drew these for me? I do =)

You showed up to the watch store one afternoon and had your binder that you kept all your sketches in. So, we were talking about art and I think we were talking about the piece you submitted to EGM (or one of those game magazines) that got you published in their art section, and for some reason you just doodled the Cloud/Tifa sketch while you were standing at the counter. I said how awesome it looked, and since you didn't like it (even back then, lol) you pulled open your binder and showed me your more detailed, colored FF7 sketches you had done earlier. I really liked the Aeris one, and without hesitation you pulled it out and gave it to me. Then, I asked you if you could draw The Crow, my favorite flik, and you didn't really know what it was. So a couple days later I loaned you the "Making Of" book, I think also maybe the movie (or you rented the flik on your own), and you did the sketch for me a few days later after you watched it. I remember you coming back and giving me the commission and saying something like "I'd rather do one of Shelly" (his girlfriend/wife), haha.

Now that you're all professional and stuff, I'm gonna have to commission you to do a follow up so we can compare art styles between 2000 and 2012 =)
