2013 summary of art by len-yan 2013 summary of art by len-yan
with the end of the year approaching fast it's time for some wrap up.

this year has been interesting for me, artistically. while i'm continuing my exploration of semirealism i've also made a couple of more realistic works. and even though the theme of majority of my works continues to be fantasy, my biggest inspiration of this year has definitely been space.
most of this year's fanarts have been drawn for the dc fandom.

due to personal reasons i might not have been able to draw quite as much as i would've liked (then again, i always feel that way). on the other hand, i finished the uni in korea, moved back to my country and managed to secure a job as a concept artist so i can't say i've been lazy.

i feel like my style is getting more mature and i'm gradually getting better at what i'm doing but i still see plenty of room for improvement and so i just can't wait for what 2014 is going to bring. i'll keep working hard!

as always, thank you for all the support!
i'll do my best to keep sharing better and better works with you^^

Your content is just so different. There's a weird calmness to your pieces. I think it's the color and the facial expressions that really get me. Love your work. I look forward to more in 2014! :)

To my eyes your art is always beautiful but I really-really loved your 2013 works, your space inspiration was great. 
October's "saturnus" is probably my most fav! : ). Reading about your success at Uni & job finding you must had a really nice year! 
Congrats and hope that 2014 will be even better for you! :heart:

I've been in love with your 2009 style for a long time, but can't say the progress is not appreciated. You sure have an awesome imagination. 
Wish you the best of luck with your job and personal progress! :)

Hey I hope you don't mind me asking, but as a half Korean/Australian it interests me that you've been studying in Korea? What was it like? Amazing work as always :)

Wow, so much improvement!  It looks like your style has gotten a lot more "mature" as you say, as in it seems to have become more blendy (the edges don't seem as sharp).  You also seem to be using a lot more different colours.  Congratulations on making it this far!  I'm just curious, what brushes do you use?  Oh, and happy holidays and good luck for the new year!

Well, you definitely paint beautiful works and so I, as a fan, am excited to see what 2014 brings too.  I'm incredibly excited for when you open up commissions again, and look forward to your continuous growth as an artist.  Also, securing a job as a concept artist is amazing, and honestly, you deserve it.  And what's even greater is that it's a job you enjoy.  Anyways, happy holidays and have a happy new year ^_^
