What a fun way to start the new year :D

One of my very first digital paintings/portraits done back in 2003 :pointandlaugh: And that painting is the actual 100% resolution I worked at too haha. Such a newb. lern 2 dpi

(This was also the stuff I was -oh so proudly- carrying around my portfolio when I began applying to art schools/courses. No wonder more than half knocked me back lol) :facepalm:

I'd also like to thank my watchers (new and old), friends and just those passing by for supporting me over the years and making what I do all the more worth it!! I could never have done it without the on going support and feedback of the dA community! :thanks: /cheesy

Dylan McDermott by Sheridan-J <-- 2012 pic.

Make it happen, man! -->

9 years 'till perfection, but I think it was worth the wait.~~ I love your work!
Sheridan-J's avatar
I'd hardly call it a wait; Not if you enjoy every moment of work you put into it :XD:
Time flies! :D

Wow, that's some major improvement. :) I love looking at old stuff I was so proud of from a few years ago and laughing at younger-me. I should really get on board this meme thing. Looks like fun.
I've been advised not to include digital artwork in my University portfolio as it's not highly regarded but I'm ignoring it. :D Digital art is a true art form god damn it!
