I just feel the need to say, if you ever worry whether or not you’ll grow as an artist… you will. Because, well, look at this thing. HAHA. It’s from 2001, and it was something I’d considered a “complete” piece. AND WILL YOU LOOK AT THE LINES ON HIS ARMS. I ask you, did I think I’d blended them flawlessly? Did I think I’d made them appear one swift stroke?
Regardless, it’s something I don’t even remember growing out of, but I did. And when I looked at this today, I was SHOCKED to see it’d been a habit of mine.
So just keep at it, is what I’m saying. You’ll surprise yourself.
