Drawings I did 20 years ago

I’ve scanned in photos I found of some old drawings I did a long, long time ago. These are way before I ever went back to school for art, so everything you see in this album was self-taught.

You can tell I was still tight with my lines and basing everything on realism, but you have to get that part down before you should ever try to move on. I didn’t know that at the time; I was just feeling my way, and I think art school came along to loosen me up at just the right time.
