2011 in Art by KicsterAsh 2011 in Art by KicsterAsh
Okay. The big thing that I'm happy about here is that I actually have more OCs in this meme than fanart. VERY happeh indeed. I've slowly begun to inch out from under the rock of security and showing to the world my original art. That's the biggest step I've taken so far.

January: Since I had no time to go onto the PC, I got into the habbit of using my prismacolor and copic markers. I was able to properly do good blends and fell in love with doing blushes:giggle: Oh yeah, I guess starting to experiment with Phinny's emotions was something of a starting point too.

February: Emmy and his twin sister Akiko. I started bringing out my OCs little by little at this point.

March: Expressions. And coloring crayons and markers. I still love my traditional work more than digital. This pic rocketed up to the front page of DA for a whole day, which REALLY surprised me since I never had one up there before that point.

April: End of classes, and as most of my watchers know by now, it marked the beginning of the giant trilogy of Phineas and Ferb: The Seer. Can you believe it's been that long already?

May: Well, I posted this pic in June, but actually did it in May. When I read a story introducing the origins of my sweetheart Lucy, my friend Mel asked if she could design her for me. And she did one heck of a job creating the little angel we all know and love now.:heart:

June: So many pics at this time, hard to decide which one to put in this. So I chose my teddy bear Spike. I was happy to draw him again. I experimented with lighting as well and new techniques.

July: SO many drawings here, but I think my favorite will be the introduction of Queen Mishah, Ruler of the Twilight Nymphs. She's become one of my most known OCs, and she holds a very important place in my heart.

August: The month was stressful for several of my friends, but also marked the airing of the summer's most viewed movie internationally: Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension. It gave me issues as well, with some picky watchers, but all in all, renewed my love for that beloved platypus.

September: Start of animation major, and piece 2 for my three main KICSters. Here, Coco makes his leap into the art world and actually gains a few fans.:heart:

October: Emotionally stressful month for me, with one entire weekend spend in tears and on the phone with Dad (yup, thar goes the Cellphone bill! XD) Stress, school, faith and friend issues broke out in the Month of Mary, as most Catholics call it. This piece was the official introduction of Shania Flynn, Francis' wife in Imagination Jumpstart. And it sat at the front page long enough for talented artists to give me a look.

November: My love for Winnie-the-Pooh was brought back to life by the DVD release of the movie. I finally broke free from my fear of drawing him looking stupid ever since I was a little girl, and drew Pooh not only in the Disney style, but in my own. This picture, to my great surprise, got over 1,600 faves. Part traditional and part digital.

December: Stress with animation, stress with coworkers, stress with spending Christmas away from my parents and little brothers, but so many good results. I was SO happy to see how far I had come in both school and art. Satellite has to be my favorite piece of this month so far, even though his height is way off. And I'm glad that, by this time in my 5 years of being on dA, I have watchers who truly support my original art and not just fanart.

Made some amazing friends this year, had so much stress, found a mentor in a true Disney Animator and got some encouraging words from Dan Povenmire of Phineas and Ferb himself. Met Catholics and other fellow believers. Helped friends through their struggles and wrote the BIGGEST book trilogy ever, gaining several readers who encouraged me to reach for my dreams and go ahead with my OCs.

Funny, I don't have anything of Mitch and Frankie on here. I'll have to do something for them too, since their fanbase rocketed in June XD

All in all, dear watchers and friends...


And God Bless.:heart:

You are an amazing artist, an AWESOME writer, and so much more.
I started looking at your work in.... when was it? Ah, yes, August. That was the month i started The Seer, and oh my gosh, i was sucked in at the second paragraph of chapter 1. I love your work, i love your art. Keep trying hard, and working hard, and 2012 will be the most amazing year EVER!

Esmeia Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Talk about improvement! :wow:
I think that's great that you're moving a bit off from fanart and are spending time with your own, original concepts! It's always fun to see what an artist comes up with. I'm slowly but surely inching in that direction myself. :D
KicsterAsh Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012  Professional Filmographer
It takes time to head in that direction, but it feels so good to do it. Do it bit by bit, that way watchers will learn to love your Ocs as much as your fanart:heart:
lenv3cold Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awwww.......makes me wish I discovered The Seer sooner than November.....even though I've look through ever little scrap of PnF you have on here XD I would have got the chance to see all of this amazing stuff. Here's to 2012, hoping that we soon get more PnF stories and art from you, and that Phinny-Chan cracks at least 10 more times!

P: I DO NOT CRACK! made a spongebob reference while rapidly digging the sand for the slim chance you would find unique minerals that would allow for flight. Face it, Phinney-Chan. You cracked.

XD Phinny-Chan is my new nickname for him, since Chan is the suffix added to japanese names for children or child-like people. And Phinny is the biggest kid I know!

You did this? It looks beautiful. The best is ... they are all super
MrJames-M-Chaney Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011  Professional General Artist
You've come so far, it really is amazing.
And trough all the tears and all the moments of happiness mixed in, at the end of the year you've emerged stronger both in skill and in soul.
This represents your story as an artist, and the emotions that lie within each piece expresses your story as a person.
I have a feeling your on your way to something very special ^_^

Thank you for all your inspiring work, your entertaining stories and for just being yourself and letting that show through your work.
In some way, whether big or small, you've improved the lives of many people :)

Wow! :D Oh man, It was totally the same for me in August. . . been obsessed with P&F ever since. :D I didn't know it was the most viewed summer movie internationally, though! :D Beautiful art and work, this year. Good luck on your animation major in the comming year. . . I understand the stress of school (sigh) I'm sure you will be the best animator in the world. Happy New Year!
keyblademaster113 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011
Wow, You've certainly have had an amzaing year haven't you? :)

You've show such an improvement throughout the last twelve months. And you're right, it is great to see that the OC's outnumber the fanart because you really have a knack for them. Each and every one of them just turns out to be amazing in one way or another. Especially Sparky. :giggle: It shows how much more independent you're becoming. You know, sometimes I just wanna get inside you head and see how it works :XD: Okay, now I'm starting to sound a little weird.

You truly are an great artist and you've been through so much this year. Not only that, but you are a great inspiration to many people on here as well. I can only hope that the year to come will be even better. So keep doing what you're doing and we'll all be right behind you! :heart:

I love to see how much people grow when I look at this meme, and this one did not fail to please me. I love your work, both fanart and original works, and it was fun to see how much you've developed and grown! You're giant book trilogy has inspired me to write my own no matter how unoriginal and cliche it is, and also inspired me to join deviantART and post some of my own art, which in itself has also improved. You are a very inspirational, bright, and overall a great person, and I will continue to support you, even though to you I'm just another fan. ~:heart:
