2013 Summary of Art ... and Art Blocks. by Gold-Seven 2013 Summary of Art ... and Art Blocks. by Gold-Seven
2013 was a weird year, art wise.
I don't know about you, but when I look back on the previous years, what I see is what I drew or painted. So, obviously, I'll remember 2013 as a weird year overall.
January and February started off really cool with Tolkien art. By February, I had more marking and A-level exams to do than ever before. I might have left May free, too; that quick painting of Nod was all I did. June and July, too, were still largely uncreative, finishing old lineart and working off commissions that had pent up. It was time for a change, though I didn't know that yet. Time for new worlds to explore.
August came along with a resounding surprise. Hannibal decided to pay me a visit after more than twenty years of absence, and convinced me, in that very forceful way of his, that yes, I absolutely wanted to explore his world, which I had terribly neglected for so long. I didn't think he was there to stay, but it seems that he was. He did seriously maul two of my vertebrae while crossing the Alps; but he's back for more now. 

Whatever 2014 will bring, have a good one! :)

Sieht aus, als wäre es ein anstrengendes Jahr gewesen... Aber trotzdem sind viele wunderschöne Bilder entstanden.

I certainly met a lot of very interesting people this year, including you! Best wishes for you, too. I have some Hannibalic plans for 2014. :)

Solange du Hannibal nicht nochmal deinen Rücken opfern musst :D.
Ich bin gespannt, was nächstes Jahr kommt!

Meinen erstgeborenen Rücken, jawohl. 

Ich auch! Dir einen guten Rutsch!
