2003 - 2012 Improvement Meme by Masae 2003 - 2012 Improvement Meme by Masae
So.. For my third anniversary on Youtube, I decided to upload this. I really can't tell you guys how grateful I am to each and every one of you. All of your encouragement, kind words, and constructive criticism has helped me to grow, not only as a Let's Player and artist, but also as a person.

I know the Meme itself already says it... But thank you all so much.


If you'd like to take a crack at this meme as well, here's the template... You'll need to tweak the years, though: [link]

Amazing. Truly Amazing. It's like as if I'm watching, or reading, a Draw My Life, summarizing the artwork of someone's life, and how it helped them to improve through their goals in life.
This may be a little redundant, but for this You Did:
Good.
Great.
Awesome!
Outstanding!!
AMAZING!!!

...Emile had the same results, and all he did was Press "A."......

i never knew you did youtube videos!!! (nobody ever tells me these things lol ) now i have to go watch them!! maybe it will help encourage me, im feeling the same way you felt in 08 right about now and i could use a pick me up :(

But yeah you really have improved a lot!! its impressive!! people tend to forget that even the experts were once beginners, everyone had to start somewhere.

(oh and believe it or not i was also heavily into neopets! my favorite was this red dragon i forgot its name, it was that "digimon" and "yu-gh-oh" my bedroom walls were literally covered with drawings of yu-gi-oh monsters XD )

Speaking of stories and art you drew for them, I remember in a video you said something about a Zelda Fanfiction you had. Can you upload that or something?

Anyway, it's pretty awesome seeing how much talent one can develop for something they enjoy over time.

Masae, no matter what rut you get in, you are AWESOME! I saw the 2006 pictures and got all "OMGWTFBBQ! YOU WERE ONLY 13/14?!?!?" You really are talented and an amazing person!

Keep up the awesome work, you're starting to get me to favorite EVERY picture you draw these days :P

So wait, your next LP is StarFox Adventures? Or am I wrong? You usually draw yourself as a chibi of the main character of the game.

I think it is amazing to see how your art has evolved through the years AND to hear your story! Art is not something that just anyone picks up. It is a struggle to accomplish and keep at it. Believe me. I do a lot of performing arts and I also knit. Sometimes I just wanna give up. But then something inspires me again. The point is, I am glad you did not quit, because you are an amazing artist! I am glad to have see all your works (both art and lps XD ). What an incredible young woman you have become. I look forward to all of your future work Masae :)

Wow, nostalgia! I remember nearly all of these pictures! Actually, I feel a little special being one of the people who was able to witness your improvement over the years firsthand. I still have all those drawings you sent me in the mail back in the day!
Glad you were able to pick up drawing again. I'm always looking forward to your next piece. :heart:

Mearii <3 I know right? Those were definitely the days. XD I still have your drawings too! I was actually considering sending you one of those just randomly for nostalgia, but then realized that I'm not sure if you still live at the same address.. It's been a long time, haha. I also still have that floppy disk we were sharing. Remember that? =P

Thanks so much. :) I'm always looking forward to your next piece, too! You really have a talent for photo manipulation. When're you picking that up again, hmm? =P

Miss you! <3

Mearii Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012
Aw man, I actually don't remember sending you any drawings. I'm embarrassed just thinking of how bad they are. Actually, I don't remember the floppy disk either. I'm terrible! I used to use those all the time though, so I'm guessing it was probably my idea? haha.

And aww shucks. Actually, I never really dropped photo manipulating! I'm just super busy with school now so I don't have as much time for photoshop as I'd like, but I did start a photography business over the summer so that also kept me busy... Most of my stuff is posted on facebook. I should probably start posting things on dA again, but it's been awhile since I've done any fan-based work so I'm sure my following isn't very interested in my personal stuff.

I'm glad that we can catch up every now and then. :D

I might be new to your fanbase, but I'm very glad you got into youtube, your art has to be some of my favorites I've seen, along with your videos! You bring me so much joy, I should be the one thanking you. :'3

Also, happy anniversary on YouTube! May you have many more happy years of awesomeness.

Wow you're only 20 I didn't even know ;w; I'm glad you didn't give up on drawing in the end, because you're awesome! ;p
I couldn't draw like that on your age. I can barely draw like that now pffft;;; if at all.
It's epic to see how you've improved, keep it up! :iconjaylaplz:

hehe, i'm about the same age right now that you were in '07 & '08, and up until recently i felt the same way you say you did... i guess this just helped me concrete the fact that whether there are people that notice my art or not (aside from my friends) doesn't matter to me, so thanks for that!
on a related note, WOW you've improved a lot! granted, you've had 9 years, but this proves that with determination you can achieve greatness; this, you have most certainly done!

I'm so proud of you. I've watched you since I saw your you tube videos back around 2009, when you got a capture card I found you. A few episodes in, when my old youtube account was called icecreamproductions or something, I just wanted to see zelda lets plays. Your ones were great. When I made my DA account, I was sure to watch you first thing. And how much you have improved in your art is just stunning. Your art just continues to impress me. I just love it.

Thank you for a great 2 almost 3 years.

It's funny you were really into Neopets as a kid, because I was too! Actually, I've been very nostalgic for Neopets this whole month... kind of ironic!

You were into Neopets too? Awesome! High five for internet childhood! Haha. I've been kind of nostalgic for it too, actually.. I found a bunch of my Neopets plushies the other day. :D Memories!
