I saw this going around on Instagram and deviantART, so I decided to hop on and do it myself. Here’s my collage of art in a decade.
As you can see, it varies up and down, but only has taken big steps in the last 2ish years. My art was on the cusp of going forward in 2013, then I regressed and it was like I started drawing from scratch all over again to a point. I know I’m very glad with the progress I made, but I feel like it’s progress I should’ve made when I was 6-7 years younger, not when I’m in my early 30s’.
Better late than never, however! Here’s to 2020 being a year I make good milestones and outproduce what I did previously! I think constant work hours has to do with me getting better.
For once, I actually get my holiday image done on time, instead of publishing it in the early hours of Christmas morning. Everyone have a great holidays! Lineart courtesy Christina Weinman.
I’m starting Inktober again! A Halo-themed piece immediately came to mind for the first prompt today. I’ve never drawn the Pillar of Autumn despite having played Halo for 15 years, so that’s a new one for sure!
Except last year, I pretty much try to get a birthday piece done every year. It varies in content, but it generally is characters of mine being kind or silly. This year I went for the former, and had my OC Jennifer, along with my blog mascot Yorina grab a seat with a self-portrait of yours truly. I rarely have myself depicted in artworks, so it was a little charming, to be honest.
As usual, I did the coloring and the background, and opted to use the station background from Rafferty’s Mobius as the backdrop. On top of my that, my Type-10 Obsidian Anvil is pretty prominent on the pad. It seems more mashed up with genres, but you can always count on me crunching genres like this together.

Youtuber VampKandy took the time to read one of my first NoSleep stories from 2014, Those Things in the Field! It’s a two-parter video with some fairly good voice acting. She’s just starting out, so please do check out her channel and subscribe.

Unlike last year, I actually took some time to properly decorate my office space now that construction was done more or less. Since I did have a fair amount of work this month, I especially tried to make sure it looked real Christmas-y around the workstation, and even had a garland going around under the monitors! And while I did set up the community tree, I didn’t get to do anything community with it this year, unfortunately. I’ll try to do better next time!
This was gift art to KobaltWolf, admin of a Zelda fan page and a streamer of Overwatch. She absolutely loves Hanzo and after a joke about “forgetting how to princess”, I knew I had to draw the two together.
Thankfully cweinmanart was there to help me out, and this was the result of that idea. Kobalt loved it and even uses for her Discord and streams. Cool!

This took a while to get realized, but I finally got this put together after this meme was passing around on 9GAG. Also apparently some other people carry on the same commentary as well, since all you do is stand, point and click.
However far it goes, at least it’s been visualized! Also was fun to do the obnoxious cover in style with those 90’s games. A lot of Cluefinders and those types of stuff I drew inspiration from.
