Then and Now by asainemuri Then and Now by asainemuri

________________________________________________

My first attempt at a face-up vs. my most current face-ups.

Looking at the photo from '08 is so damn funny to me...LOL. God. Not only could I not do a face-up, but apparently I couldn't style a wig either...or take a decent photo that wasn't completely awkward and blown out. -w-;

So you see, guys...We pretty much ALL start out this way. No matter how snooty and/or pretentious some of the people in this hobby get. :roll:

A lot of people send me messages asking about tips on doing face-ups, and the best tip I can give anyone who wants to do their own face-up is to PRACTICE as often as you can. We all basically suck in the beginning, but don't give up just because you can't get those lines right or you smudge something. Just wipe it and start over! I'm never 100% content with my own work, so even now my style is changing and improving. Thinking you're the very best just means you'll cease to ever get any better.

So be humble and keep learning and trying! :)

I have ti say I love your work and  you are so right.  When I looked back at my start it was scary but , while I am not as far along as I wish to be, I am still practicing.  This is an awesome example of  what practice can do.

I thank you for posting this, especially with a tangible year. This gives me insight to the years of dedicated practice all art takes, you've reached some great standards and I know you will push yourself to be the best every new piece you do.

Holy shit that's a huge difference. I need more practice heads T___T

My work still looks worse than your first one LOL. This makes me want to try painting more though. I think that if ever I did get good... I'd still want to send my babies to you <3 n.n
