Jonathan Hardesty - An Amazing Journey

Jonathan Hardesty is an artist I truly respect and admire. I came across his posts about bargue drawings on Concept art about 4 years ago. Though his art is amazing and he makes it look easy, it didn't start out that way. It was hard work.

Journey of an Absolute Rookie is a documentary of his journey. I invite you to browse through this thread and watch him struggle and try and work for every bit of skill. He is not a personal friend. I have never been in contact with him, but his efforts have been an incredible inspiration to me. When you are done browsing, head over to his website and see what his work looks like today. It is an astonishing difference. He has had an amazing journey. My guess is that it isn't over yet.

If I had the money to collect an artists work, his would be at the top of my list.

I created a page to show, in a single image, the evolution of Jonathan Hardesty artwork with his works near 2002 and then near 2011:
