This post is about artwork I made when I was even more of a total noob. I think it’s interesting to see how creativity and skill develop overtime and with practice, especially with artistic things like art, music, writing, and more.
This piece is called “Transcendental Vision” It was one of my first pieces where I felt almost euphoric about the creativity I was releasing. The eye represents a peek into another world of imagination. I imagined a world of robotic, living things. This is what happened.
This piece was a milestone for me. Looking back at it now I can see so many imperfections with it, but I recognize it as a necessary point of progression. I used a similar style to create this piece almost a year later.
See how the geometry, line work, and even some of the colors carried over? It amazes me that I made such a leap- I would never have imagined making something like this a year down the road when I was painting the first image in this post.
Here’s another older piece. One of my first watercolor paintings. Read an article about this mixed media piece here.
I had to do a bunch of stuff to make this mixed media piece. It wasn’t easy! Look how I drew my flowers a year later though!
When I was younger I used to draw lots of futuristic cities, design futuristic weapons and vehicles, and draw different kind of aliens and robots. In other words, I was a total nerd, but I can see how that carried on to some of my later work.
Here’s some of my work from early childhood. Unfortunately I havent found any early drawings with the sci fi themes I mentioned. I dont know exactly how old i was but on the back of these pieces it says kindergarten through 3rd grade.
