In Retrospect

2017 was the first year of me working as a full time artist and despite many concerns and fears, it was a surprisingly good start. Counting in everything I actually finished, I made more than a 100 pieces of art, about two thirds being commissions. Wow, this was way more than I would have ever asked for!
Additionally, I went through a lot of educational material to improve my work and I got to admit that not less than 50% of the way I work has changed throughout the year. Many people trusted me with their money this year and I am extremely proud that I did not disappoint them after all. I'm thankful so many picked me to bring their visions to life to make them happy.
After the roughest period of my adult life during 2014 to late 2016, this year was an entirely different bull-park. I got rid of most of my health issues and what's even more important, I finally was looking forward to tomorrow rather than fearing another nervous breakdown. I had periods of exhaustion this year, but it wasn't because of negative stress.

Janet This image of Janet marks a change in the way I work on my pictures. During that time I adapted a few new skills which made it much more fun to look forward to the finished piece.

Janet I consider this image the most important of the year for myself. After I did some research on digital painting, I finally found enough source material to adapt techniques to make my characters more lively and a much better grasp on colour and light.

Selene Selene is a side-character a friend and I came up with to start filling up the emtpy spaces in the lore.
