From a time long ago...

...when I use to have talent. Heh. I discovered a shoebox with my old art work from almost 13 years ago. Most of it was done when I was working for Ellen Million Graphics designing stationery. This was way before she built the company up to where it is today. I would never have stood up against some of the talent she has now. Anyhoo, that being the case, most of it is small b&w art that doesn't scan very well. Most of it looks embarrasing to me now , but here are a few pieces.

This one is obviously stationery...his wings skimmed down either side of the paper...

As is this bordered the left and right margins.

I don't know how you guys do it. Fantastic work. When I use to be able to draw, I would and probably still only be able to do it from a photograph. There is no way I would be able to pull it out of my mind and do it.

Aw, thanks for commenting, guys!

M2G, I'm the opposite. I did some portrait work for people at the time, and while they came out okay, it was very stressful and not easy for me. Even when I was doing fan art, later on, I did it off the top of my head. I hate doing realism.
