Oh, How She's Grown by y2jenn Oh, How She's Grown by y2jenn
Kidd is my oldest character. She's been with me since 1997 and has gone through so much change over the years. It's fun to look back over the years I copied and learned from my favorite artists at the time. Obviously Joe Mad and Akira Toriyama were among the bunch. One day I'll update this. One day I'll finally finish her book.

This... gives me an idea of how long it takes to become... well, one who is capable of producing professional looking work, lol. Did you go to an art college? I'm a freshman at one in Chicago right now, heh. Anyway, I love how she's evolved.... You've inspired me to dig up old doodles of my main character and compile them like this, lol. You've improved a lot. :) Keep it up, definitely.... My fave style is the most recent one. ^^; It's the most personal looking.

Do I detect a hint of Michael Turner influence? Years '00-'02 have a bit of a "Witchblade" feel to them...

I'm afraid not. Turner was absolutely talented but I was never influenced much by his work. 00 and 01 were my Joe Mad years. 02 I was very much influenced by Frank Cho and Adam Hughes. :giggle:

@ '99: one of these things is not like the others... XD

I love how you've grown though. I just found your gallery (incidentally, though the help desk, because my gallery is freaking out right now...), but I like that you've showcased your progression. It's inspirational! My writing has done a similar progression, but I am always working to improve. :)

I'm not goin to flame you! :lol: It's not my nature to. :) I completely understand. I prefer my less-anime-esque years but 2001-2003 seem to be my most popular. I'm glad you liked it!

Great journey into growth. I too agree its important to keep old stuff so that one can gauge at the level one has grown. Cheers!

You do! And then you have to note me about it so I see it right away. Otherwise it'll just rot in my messages like everything else. :dead:

This is Kidd. The main (well, one of the main) character in my book... wanna-be book.

it's quite funny that you posted this actually, as cory and i were just looking through some of the first issues of invincible and talking about how much better has has gotten since then.

i absolutely LOVE looking through his old sketches.

Wow, your style and skill has certaintly progressed. I notice the suble changes that have all added up. Its also obvious that you have become more skilled at displaying emotions and fellings in your works. The older ones look a bit angry too :P

Love the dragon ballz z type one. Thats a hoot :)

Ooh what a brilliant idea! I wonder if I could cope with the embarrassment enough to do that with my main character - I have drawings from 87 onwards somewhere! It's really interesting seeing how your style has evolved and what media influenced it. You seem to have had a massive leap forward when you started reading manga and comics!
