Improvement Journey by Vattukatt Improvement Journey by Vattukatt
I just wanted to try making one. It was really fun looking at all that old art x'> I wasn't very talented (I don't even know how I got into art school xD)
I had real trouble remembering what really happened all those years but I think I got it right. I don't seem to recall many details about my art life, except some main things like what story I was writing at that time ^^

For some reason I decide to make this a drawings only. I sculpted a lot in the last year of art school but I decided to leave that out. 

Some of the video game series that's been inspiring me: Final Fantasy, Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, Shin Megami Tensei
Some of the anime/manga/comics/cartoons in general that's been inspiring me: The Last Unicorn, W.I.T.C.H., Death Note, Bleach, Chrono Crusade, D.gray-man, Ghibli Movies
Books that's been inspiring me: Trädet och Tiden by Gunila Ambjörnsson, Johannesnatten by Gull Åkerblom, The His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, The Bartimaeus trilogy by Jonathan Stroud


- It wasn't written down in the actual novel, but when Ronen got killed Semyon caught his soul and ate it. Then he used the information still stored in that soul to create a new form called Chester - he who refuses to feel pain or sadness. 



Art and characters (c) Vattukatt, except those pokémon and other characters that aren't mine, they're (c) to their rightful owners :D

What course did you have at art school? :)

I always like to see these progress memes. :heart:

The first year we had three main courses, sculpture, painting and ceramics. But we also got to try out other things, like drawing, animation and working with textiles. The second year had more free time for own projects and the last year we got to plan our year completely on our own (which was awesome). I mostly focused on sculpture that year. 

It was surprisingly fun to make it too :D

It's hard to not criticize own stuff, I guess ^^' I compare too much to people who was art masters at the age of 10 and feel like I can't catch up x'> I know it's stupid to compare since everyone's growing differently. But it's hard to stop. But thank you so much for cheering me on :iconsweethugplz:

Wow. Nu kanske man inte behöver ha sån ångest över att man inte är så jäkla duktig x) Skulle väl säga att jag ligger på typ samma nivå som du när du var 17-18 och jag är 18 nu så... Ska bli kul att se vad framtiden har att utvisa! Älskar att se andras utvecklingar, det ger mig hopp om framtiden Clap

Haha jag tror jag haft otur där eftersom jag bara ser massa folk som är tusen gånger mer pro än mig och flera år yngre x'> Men man ska nog inte tänka så. Alla utvecklas i sin egen takt. ^^ Jag är bara inte så bra på att komma ihåg det. Åh det kommer bli intressant att följa hur det utvecklar sig i framtiden! :> Jag ser verkligen fram emot att få se det! Glad att kunna skänka lite hopp med :D

But I don't want you to hurt :< I'm glad to be inspiring tho :iconsweethugplz:
"never be as good as you", there's this little voice I hear echoing those words through the halls of my mind every now and then, but it's bullshit according to most of my characters and sometimes also the more logical voice in me. You'll be as good as you allow yourself to be. But you know this ^^ maybe your characters are saying that too. You should listen to them. Hell, I should listen more to them too :D
