I have loads of art books lol, I only count one of them as really good though, neon-dragon's dragonart book, it's AWESOME!!! and cause of it I draw dragons just sooo much better than horses  (and both without circles or anything such now) even though I've only been drawing dragons since about last Christmas and I've been drawing horses since I can remember O_o lmao.

as for the "jump" thing, my horse art did that last autumn lol, I went from shoddy to ok and I've been getting better at everything rapidly since xD only on paper though, my maker pictures just about look like a three year-old's xD my drawing at least looks like a seven year-old's :p

my CG art (so photoshop ect) is about half-way between my drawing and my maker ability on horses, and about the same as my drawing ability on dragons, no that is probably because I've been doing computer dragons from about the same time as on-paper dragons, unlike my horses xD

I couldn't compare on people as I don't have anything I can really compare xD people on here really aren't hard so it's obvious that I'd be getting them right on here more than on paper so I can only compare my drawing to my in PS stuff and I haven't done anything in PS (or other art programs) of a human very recently xD well, not properly :p I did a stickman animation recently but that doesn't really count haha!

also my painting made quite a big jump recently, before a few months ago (april or may I think my ability to paint made a jump forwards) I wasn't able to get the paint to blend so I couldn't shade very well, then suddenly on this random background I was making, I could xD I really dunno why my ability jump QUITE so drasticly though, one day I couldn't blend paint to save my life, next day my paintings look like I've got out the bender on my shading it's so smooth xD I think that's the most drastic jump my art ever made, and the only time I think one type of art has effected another kind of art for me xD

as for doing one kind of stuff helping with other kinds of stuff... as I said. For some reason that doesn't happen to me. the stuff I do in PhotoShop and such are mostly quite behind what I can do on paper (often I use my sketching pencils to do a black-and-white shaded drawing of something, scan it, then use the brush tool to dump colour down+some layer effects to colour it in PS as my drawing ablity is just that much better, but it's that much easier to shade colour by doing that, although recently PS has become obsilete for that even as I have figured shading with coloured pencils) and my maker stuff is even further behind that sooo... eh xD normally one kind of art doesn't effect another xD the only type of art that seems to get effected by other kinds is my painting, I do my linearts with pencil and I think the jump in my shading ability was cause my doing PC stuff slightly xD

hmm, this is gonna be another essay isn't it xD

yep, and even longer essay, that's two essays in a row from me in this here topic lol xD wish my RPing posts where that long, but I'd need to be RPing about 20 charries at a time to achieve that long a post in a RP xD

lol, it is fairly long :)

The main point of my post is that you may not see the improvement for years... that doesn't mean it isn't happening ;)

I almost wish I could show you the first version of this site... almost :P

I made it when I was 17 and it was awful, I was 25 or so before I started being able to consistently draw what I wanted to. Even so, the stuff I did 5 years ago sucks compared to what I can do now. I imagine it will be the same with the stuff I do today when I look at it in five years ;)

When you were 17? So that means (according to your dA profile) that this site is about 14 years old already? We should have an anniversary part next year!
I suddenly realised that I use flowers alot, and actually called it my signature. So TADAA:

With lots of thanks to Dragonlord Daegen for making my beautiful signature!

Ya, lol... I don't know the month I started it anymore, but I know I was 17 when we got our first computer, and I started this website within the first couple weeks.

It was called the Emerald Empress' Dungeon then. It only had paper dolls, colouring pages to print off, and fantasy buttons and art for other people to use. I didn't find out about dress up games and online colouring books until I had had the site maybe two years or so :)

It is a lot different now :p
