I was glad to see some that I had totally forgotten but remember feeling content with back then. Now they of course many of them seem quite silly or technically poor. Nevertheless I liked to revisit them now and see from where I've come and what where my main influences in terms of subject or medium.
Animation was a big thing at an early age so I've included some pictures I copied from Disney's Fantasia when I was in my early elementary school. Also one of my 1st (and few) paintings was inspired by The Black Cauldron :)
Then there's the usual suspects fantasy subjects, star wars, Marvel comics, dinosaurs, samurais and yeah that ever fascinating Alien :D Combination of animation and V -series is the painted "cell" over a sky background huhuh nerdy freaky.
And to be honest from some of these I think I haven't made ANY progress since :D
