Wow, just wow. I'm not even sure where to begin with this old art of mine. I was drawing a lot of humans, especially girls, around this time. All of them had this exact same appearance: thin, weird arm muscles, no hands, whatever that lip thing is, and a penchant for terrible punk/goth clothing. I was really trying to find "my style" of drawing humans and I really wanted to draw some "atmospheric" pieces to set my art apart from my friends' art.
I was also learning how to ink artwork around this time. I spent a lot of time looking at popular DeviantArt artists' outlines and trying to mimic their style. In these early stages of inking, I only had Sharpies and regular writing ink pens to work with as this was well before I had even heard of any brand of art pens. It's quite amazing to see how the foundation of my inking skills today started with something as terrible as this.
