Old times... by Yohao88 Old times... by Yohao88
I was tidying up my room... and I found my ultra awesomely precious artbook! XD First reaction: "OMFG!! I used to draw really well!!!!!".
Because when time passes, you may be able to look at the past as if it were about another person, and not... completely you.
People change.
Anyway, these drawings are probably my most precious treasure. :heart:
I love them with all my heart. :love:

The drawings and the twins, I mean. :giggle:

When I first saw this I started to think deeply and wanted to go sit in a corner and cry for some reason... I really loved all of your older art and I like all the newer art too... I just feel so stupid though - I'm always late to join a fandom... It seems like everything I like is just old and forgotten... I love the Asakura twins too, mostly because they remind me of myself and my brother... I have really got to thank him for introducing me to them. 
Writing this jut makes me feel stupid, but... that's just the way I am I guess - stupid anti-social and always late. 
Just to let you know - your art has inspired me to try my harder to improve on my skills too and even though I still draw badly, I have improved a lot so thank you for that ^_^
Sorry about the length, I guess I just wanted to express myself for once...
Well I wish you much luck in your future ^_^

Awwww!! Thanks a lot! This was touching!!! :) It's never too late to join a fandom, anyway. :D it's the love that counts! :XD:
I'm honored by the fact you are inspired by my art. Believe it or not, I'm not confident about my skills even now!! :rofl: So you inpired me as well!! :nod:
I wish you a lot of wonderful drawings!!!! Keep drawing and never stop trying!!! XD
A million hugs!! :hug:

Hug   Thanks! Thing is I never trust myself with anything, but support from other people really is what keeps me going. I've always liked drawing, but I mostly just did it if I needed to like for art class. Untill I gave it a casual try and started drawing much more in my free time, but it was really bad up untill last month when I just magically learned to draw better.

But you, you are the one person I would never think would be unconfident. Seriously you draw just as well as the actual manga artists!

Also as a side note. I just remembered something weird and funny that my mind once created XD It was Hao with a Russian fur hat, pixel sunglasses, high-fiving Nyan cat with the same pixel sunglasses, drinking vodka, all while riding a firebreathing grizzly bear through space as nukes fell towards the earth. No seriously, no joke there XD
(Sorry if there's bad grammar, I'm on tablet and my first language isn't English either)

well I think all the artist go through what you just described. :) If not, they wouldn't improve!!! Because you improve when you're not happy with what you're doing right now!! don't you think so? :)
Drawing is not easy, especially if you aren't attending a drawing school (I never went to one). But it's not impossible. My suggestion is to COPY A LOT!!!!!!! It seems boring, but while you copy your brain starts to understand how a drawing should be done, even if you don't notice it. That's how I learned, and every series I traced taught me something new! :nod: Give it a try!! :D

And that drawing would be amazing... :rofl: Oh my god... X°°°°°°D

(no worries about english... it's not my mother tongue and I do think I'm making mistakes as well, thought I don't know which ones... X°°°D)

Yeah, that does push you forward a lot, though at least in my case I have to fight my mind that's telling me to quit.
I'm not going to one either, really. I have tried tracing and copying a bit as well, though I'll try to do them again.


Yeah and I had a little fun imagining that my OC somehow drew that and showed everyone and what their reactions would be XD

Also, I think I found Hao's car yesterday. I was just walking along and the license plate on a car catches my eye. I look at it and it literally just says HAO on it.

Agreed! >=3

I wanted to steal it kinda XD Thing is Hao would probably burn us to death if we did... and my mom was there... and I'm 13... and I would crash it within 10 seconds...

Also, your left hand is able to draw as well as mine would before and I'm left-handed...just so you know how bad I used to draw before my magic improvement in drawing...

And just so that you know, now I'm twice your age... :P and I did the first drawings you can see here on dA when I was 19. You have time. A LOT of time, to get better! :XD: don't worry about it and keep trying!

Uwah?! That sounded awful! :faint: But you used such happy emotes! I opened this up and thought to myself, "This is a huge inspiration to me." 

I'm a complete stranger to your page, and maybe it's not in my place to ask [about why you lost passion], but is it alright if I did?

... :paranoid:

:iconyohao88:
Yohao88 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The fact I lost passion... and the reason behind it... it happened long ago and now it's somehow pretty distant. :XD: 
I stopped because something in my life changed, and bow I'm going to restart because something else changed. :XD:
I'm weird.
But I edited the description accordingly, now. :rofl:
Thanks for asking. :)

x-Jazzy-B-Real-x Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2013
Oh, I see! Because of the description, I made the assumption that you lost passion because you felt that you could not progress. 

Oh, it's nice that you would like to start again. :) Of course, even if you didn't, that would also be fine, as it's your decision to make. The description's phrasing just caught me off guard, I think! :XD: I was too overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the inking in this gallery, because it made me really want to draw! 

The bittersweet deviation also brought me back to a flashback of a friend of mine; she drew with a style similar to yours, and also filled her notebooks with it. Then, one day she decided that she was no longer good enough, and turned herself over to everything young adulthood offers you [in its worst light]. It makes me feel sad, when things like this happen, but I understand that it happens.

Inutile dire quanto io ami follemente i tuoi disegni di Shaman King. Sei una delle più brave artiste che abbia mai visto e hai uno stile che ricorda tantissimo quello di Takei. Spero ne disegnerai ancora tanti altri.

You were awesome ♥. But I understand you. I actually don't draw, cause I'm not able to do this with my best. I can't give my best anymore. I will miss your works (I have one on my phone;D).

Our reasons are the same, it seems. But who knows... Maybe one day we'll retry and will draw even better! XD Deep in my heart I hope so.
For now, whenever I think I have the wish to draw, I tell to myself "let's try" and then suddenly the next thought is "naaaaah... I totally don't feel like to". XD

But why wont you draw? All your drawings (especially the ones from SK) were an inspiration for me to draw mine (I dont have them up because they came out horrible but thats a different story ._.) because I wanted to be at least half as good as you, and your just wasting your talent D: I know your still capable of being good at it 'cause you cant forget how to be amazing at something D:

Maybe you should find inspiration in music, sport, other peoples art, but you definately cant stop drawing. I know your probably sick of me saying it over and over again, but I really find you the greatest artist ever and Im your fan and Ive been actually watching you (on dA of course) for quite a while, I was just too shy to say anything x.x
