The bears below are actually a derivative of an image I did my first year or so in business. I love recreating images and I recommend that others do it, too, if only on occasion. Why? You can clearly see how much your style has improved in a relatively short period of time. I actually dislike the old one so much now that I wondered if it's even worth posting, but I decided to. My daughter sometimes complains about how she's "not good at drawing" this and that, and I always tell her that in art - like so many other things - practice makes perfect. And it's true. The longer you do something, the better at it you become!
Here's the older, far less attractive version:
You can clearly see a difference, and I'm thrilled that I've made so much progress in just two years' time. And it taught my daughter a lesson, too; she loves the cleaner, more colorful new bears. =)
In other news, I've been putting together new websites for my studio (sorry, not up yet) and I also recently updated my Cold Snap Studio website with new work and news. Although it's not quite spring yet in Alaska (-6F currently), we do have considerably more sunlight now, which puts me in a more energetic and much more creative mood. So I'm on a roll creating new things. Best part is, it's great for business.
As always, thanks for dropping by. Have a great, creative week!
