Wow. Has it already been 10 years? Man, that's 10 years I could've spent learning new languages or traveling the world or, I don't know, planting trees.
Anyway, this year I tried to soften up my lines a bit and maybe introduce a tiny bit of dynamism (although you can't really see the latter so much in the picture as cropped.) I also made various speed and efficiency improvements, which is why the picture for 2012 looks a little sketchy compared to years previous. It also took a quarter as long to do, so yeah.
Next year, I want to keep working on fundamentals, keep practicing volume and lighting effects, and maybe meet some women. ...Just kidding. Talk to you next year.
