Artwork throughout the years

So I thought it'd be fun to post pictures of how much my artistic ability has changed throughout the years. I took photos of the drawings I found in my sketch book. I think the earliest one is from 2001 and the last one was just this month.

Please critique them, too, so I know if there's still stuff I need to work on!!!

From when I was 11.


A little blurry!


This one's just really weird! lol!


Yay!! Stick people!!!


Finally getting some muscle on the horses!!


Trotting along...


As you can see, my people never really improved!!


Hey you can actually see the date here!! Its from 2004!!


Ahhhh!!! Loose horse!!


Working on shading right.


Unfinished show jumping.


Oil on canvas. I think this was from 2005 or 2006, not sure.


2008, a sketch of my old mare, an american saddlebred.


Jumping Paint Stallion, 2008


2008, not sure what to call him, but he's a pencil sketch.



What do you think??

Dude,

I really like the first and fourth one, and I'm not joking around Children's drawings are awesome. They are so genuine. Great job!

Thanks everyone for your great comments!! I hope I still be able to continue drawing but I have a feeling that once I start college, I'll be too busy to sit down and draw! lol, I'll see though.

I LOVE the painting - wish I could paint ;) you've improved so much! Good job!

...and he whispered to the horse, trust no man in whose eyes you do not see yourself reflected as an equal.

Ok what the heck!! My drawings were the same when I was young and then I gave up drawing. And now they look like the one from 2004!! I should have kept going! Your drawings are amazing! good job!
