I recently wanted to try to re-do an old image that had been done shortly before I started at the atelier. I chose to re-paint this one: link
I chose that image because it was done about 3 weeks before I sent in my second portfolio and got accepted into conceptart.org's Next-Gen Atelier. I remember being really, really proud of that piece at the time, but looking back on it it makes me think my standards for myself were set pretty low. Nevertheless, it does make me proud of what I've learned since I've been in the school.
Also the last of my 5 pieces to submit for ImagineFX's Rising Stars of Fantasy Art competition. Sent in my submissions today, so fingers crossed!
