Never Settle by MeghanHetrick Never Settle by MeghanHetrick
I get asked a lot for tips and such for aspiring artists. Which makes me laugh, because i still consider myself one of the fold, lol. ANYWAY, my first response is always to never "settle" with your art. If you're not happy, do what you need to do, learn what you need to learn, to fix it.

So i don't sound like a hypocrite, I figured i'd show my own concept in action. On the left, a piece i did almost 2 years ago exactly, and i remember being pretty satisfied with it. Now, i look at it and go "ew". You recognize the one on the right. 2 years from now, i fully expect me to look at the newest, and go WTF was i thinking? Always be ready and willing to learn folks. It's a lot of work, but it pays off.

-- Thank you for the DD and comments on such! --

Never Settle by ~MeghanHetrick is such a fantastic example of an artist pushing themselves and ensuring their talents never idle. The side by side comparison for this is definitely worthy of note. ( Featured by kozispoon )

Never settle? Isn't that the motto of angry nerds and certain director who re-re-releases his movies?

You can really notice the transition. In the second piece you've made your character smoother and the way you've set the picture naturally and effortlessly highlights the person in the certain of the page. Well Done.

Thanks for posting this! It's really cool to see someone else's art journey as a side by side. 2011 was really good in its own right, but the newest is truly polished. Good luck and happy learning! :D
