My previous post was a really old design back when I was drawing “holiday sprites” right out of college, redone. The watercolor is pretty bad, looking at it now, but at the time I was excited to be trying a cartoony style because while I was in college I never felt like I had time to experiment with a style, I just had to knock out projects. and they always leaned towards realism because that was easier for me. Redoing this one has made me want to redo other older holiday designs I have.
I post this kind of thing every once in awhile because 1.) I’m proud of how far I’ve come, and 2.) I hope it offers encouragement to people that feel they are struggling. Just keep learning, listen to critiques and keep on drawing/painting/whathaveyou.
