These things are so much fun for me to look at that I figured I'd do one, too!

I didn't really include any life drawing or still life classwork because while it helps hone skills considerably, the subject matter and technique isn't as relevant to my overall work. So here you have personal pieces, commissions, and portfolio pieces.

It's a bit obvious to me that the end of 2007 was my turning point. I was influenced a lot by traditional Chinese paintings and Japanese prints.

Also, I made a LOT of art in 2008. And I mean a lot. It was quite the trip to dig up art from the older years, too. I even had trouble finding files of some pieces.

I like looking at other people's memes of this kind too :)
I noticed we're the same age, but I didn't go to art school - you improved really a lot in those years! Your gallery is really nice, I like the imaginative drawings :)

It's odd... in 2007, you all of a sudden got very good, very quickly... It's like a total epiphany!

Congrats on that.

It really was an art epiphany! And I have my university and professors partly to thank for that.

This gives me hope. Not only did you develop in terms of style, but your composition method has drastically improved since your early years. I think composition is where I really fault, so it's good to know that I can someday come up with intriguing and inspiring works of art (:
