A decade of work

180 Favourites
In September 2010 I posted my first pieces on DA.

Here some pictures from my paleoart gallery to sum up my journey. It was certainly far less linear than it looks here, and often I felt like i wasn't moving at all. 
But there are things I DID learn.
I learned to use references and how to read scientific papers, I learned to work with watercolor, digital media and acrylic paint. I learned to construct landscapes and how to work with light and colored shades. Most importantly I learned to reflect on my own work. I'm far from being a master, but at least I know now what I don't know.

I hope you all had a wonderful start into 2020, and I'm curious to see what the future holds for us.

Very cool how more and more photorealistic backgrounds appear in your work over time. They sure make a difference :)

Your work was always wonderful for me and helped motivate me to improve my own when I was little. And yet, your improvement is still absurdly impressive.

I will be glad to call you the King of Paleostream and follow you to the ends of the Earth, Past and Present.

I was wondering. Are you going to redo some of your old works?
