|Commission, back then very simple drawings might've taken me 20 hrs..|
|Finished work, as you could see I very skillfully avoided backgrounds|
|The car was a little dirty|
|Commission of our school's principal|
|I actually diddled with some oils and acrylics back then, I guess it was easier as I wasn't moving all the time|
|All those great grades I would've had if I had just paid attention in class|
|I did this for my significant other, I don't think I ever finished it...|
Edit for more stuff:
|I was clearly born with great skill Kappa|
|One of the pencil sketches I did at my school|
I tried to do stuff from my imagination a lot of the times and sometimes using photo references. I guess those were my early "studies" of sort.
Sometimes I'd copy some video game art as a bit of a "practice" but my mentality towards creating has pretty much changed completely. Back then it was satisfying to replicate the character art of War from Darksiders but nowadays I feel it's asinine. Why not take the character and create something new and amazing instead? I guess I had ideas but not the skill to realize those ideas.
I guess there was *some* benefit in doing that but that's not really how you study successfully.
