So as I was bored to death today I just made some epic mess in my room by sorting through my very first dragon pics, and also found in my files my VERY first digital pics EVER 8D I decided to give ya a good laugh and show you these wonders: (I used Paint and shamelessly used backgrounds that I found in the computer xD)

This one was my very, VERY first digital pic I ever made, and it was made in 2006:


It also features one of my old characters which was the first one I ever designed, but was the second one to become an official OC of mine. Despite his cliché name (Draco) I still love him and draw him from time to time <3 It's the first time I ever show him to dA.


The second one which was made in 2006 too, I think even the same day as the first one:

This was another OC of mine, but his colours changed to yellow and orange a little later on. His head design was inspired by that "Dragons, a Fantasy made real" movie :lol: Lol look at that body.

Third one I ever made: Draco again, also drawn in 2006:

That pose...xDDD Also didn't even colour his wings fully for some reason..



After those three I never tried digital drawing again for two years, until I really wanted to try and get better at it (this was at that time that I joined dA)

Fourth one, drawn in 2008:

Remember him? Yup, that's Xerco <3 My fourth, and most favourite OC of mine back then. I still love him just as much now and draw him here and then, he means so much to me.
You can't imagine how many times I drew dragons standing on top of a cliff and looking at the horizon/ stars. I'm not kidding if I say there are over 300 of them JUST standing on a cliff and staring at nothing. And yeah I was already obsessed with night pics back then...xD

Last one, this was a totally random dragon, made in 2008 too:

Look at dem paws.


So here you have it, my very first digital pictures ever :|  Those are not my VERY first dragon pictures ever, it's only the first ones made with the computer. but it's close enough to when I first started drawing them. Laugh to your heart's content! But despite the HUNDREDS of mistakes I could never say I hate them, I remember drawing those as if it was yesterday, and how happy I was to finally "succeed" at drawing digitally <3 Yeah, when I was small it was my dream to draw digital pics :XD: When I think about it, I can say my childhood dream has become a reality now. AND I SURE AIN'T GONNA STOP!

Wow... It's really neat, actually, to see the progression of skill and improvement over the course of time that these were done. And to look at your art now, and see it in all of it's awesomeness, and see what it started as, it is very encouraging for me, at least, because I'm terrible at digital art! XD
Anywho, I commend you for posting these! :salute:

You have improved a lot since then but, to be ones, they were still pretty good.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being proud of old art. After all, they might look simple now but back then you probably put a lot of effort into them when drawing.

It would be interesting to see how all those dragons would look on your current style.

Sur ces 6 dernières années, ton travail et ta patiences s'avèrent vraiment payants !

Bon courage pour la suite, en espérant que tu décroche ta place en école d'art ou d'animation (ou toute autre école si t'as changé d'avis, mais il me semble que c'est par là que tu voudrai t'orienter, non?)

hmm si j'étais toi Momo, juste pour le fun, je referais Draco et le second en violet avec tes techniques actuelles, juste pour voir ce que ça donnerais, et bon diou je me rappelle du documentaire, Dragons et si ils avaient éxisté? une pure merveille. Pour le reste, de 2006 a 2008 ça n'avais qu'un peu évolué, gain en fluidité sur le lineart, pattes mieux faites. Le gros du travail c'est fait sur les 4 dernière années quand même. Y a rien a dire de plus, en 6 ans, t'a quand même monstrueusement évoluée, bravo :iconbwavoplz:.

That's some improvement!! I never got into digital at because I felt it lacked the control of traditional art, though that was more likely because of my low tech self. ^^ anyway, I made stuff kinda like this, and it seemed to prove my theory.


And then I found deviantart. :|

Hmm, I think you should pick one and try drawing the same character in a somewhat similar pose and canvas location and recreate the backround from scratch! Then you could see exactly how far you have come in anatomy and style and maybe many years from now return and add another remake if you feel you might be able to do much better. Of course sometimes remaking a picture feels boring when creating a new picture might be way more fun. Depends on what mood your in I guess, most art always seems to depend on the artist's mood.
Just about how many dragon pictures are in your room to sort through? Are there entire folders or cabinets full of paper? :O
