Home for my art-related things!
Below include my 'featured' galleries & my year archives. I also have a more consise portfolio subsite over at portfolio.jadeeverstone.com.
I'll hold off on any blurbs 'till the end of the year (don't want to jinx things, yunno?).
So for now, presenting: 2023's art!
2022 is when I started rethinking how I want to do art going forward. I did focus a lot harder on drawing comics, scenes, and backgrounds. But I also started learning my limits & boundries in regards to illustration.
Artwise 2021 was a weird, experimental year (not that I don't try to experiment, just that looking back this year was more experimental than usual). I bounced between digital, traditional, and tra-digital a lot.
2020 was the year I got back into comics and started getting interested in zine-making. It's also the first time I applied and got into a few zines! Most of my art this year were more sketch-y & less polished though for the sake of keeping it easy on myself
I'm not sure how to describe 2019? Because it was intensive because of AP studio, experimental because of bouncing between traditional & digital? Looking back I honestly don't think I had a direction, I was just making whatever to figure out what I want to do.
Below are archives of older artworks from when I was a teenager. Not representative of my current work of course, but an interesting peek into where I started.
You know on one hand I seem to have drawn a lot more in highschool than now but on the other hand I got to remind myself the art I post doesn't even account for studies, sketches, other obligations, & the fact the art I do nowadays takes more time (scenes & comic stuff)
Similar feelings to 2018; drew a lot more but also I drew stuff that didn't take as long. Also helped that my main fandoms this year featured simple-shaped characters so lots of faster art.
I'll make a serious description later. Lots of art, failed comic, LPStube and Animal Jam stuff
The oldest collection of artworks of mine. Hell, there's a few here that predate me going under 'Jade Everstone' online.
This gallery compared to my more modern stuff really does show off how far I've gotten art-wise.
