Like, for reals... I'm just that kind of artist! But I hope you enjoy what I've got:

|HOSTIA, No. 9 (2010) watercolor.|
But as far as I'm concerned, I don't wanna ever draw or render another rose for awhile. Ibexes are still cool. Just not roses...

I've been obsessed with trying to freehand in Photoshop. When you're as bound to traditional media as I am, the only reason you go anywhere near the computer is to touch-up. If you want perfect contour lines, you'll be erasing and re-drawing the same line 20+ times.
As for my self-portrait, I've never enjoyed self-portraits. I don't even enjoy looking at photographs of myself without feeling terribly uncomfortable. I am extremely, deathly boring in real life, and whenever I've been asked to create a self-portrait, firstly, I go into instant, paralysing shock, and secondly, I always need to embellish. So, viola! Disneyfied and then some.

Thirdly, he was my first successful attempt at the Disney style. Once again, not easy to master! His proportions came out odd in the end - although, at least once, I absolutely meant to draw out of proportion, but that's another story...
