Drawing I Made When I Was 12 by markcrilley Drawing I Made When I Was 12 by markcrilley
This is a drawing I made of the mothership from the film "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" back when I was 12 years old. It's one of a small stack of childhood drawings I featured in a video I uploaded to YouTube today.

You can see the video here: youtu.be/8anRv2PBF10

It is the second in a series of such videos showing my elementary school art. Here's the first video: youtu.be/i_f5B0NHas4

Prior to that I did a video showing art from high school. You can see that video here: youtu.be/wdSYMdYxZA4

Thanks so much to anyone who watches my videos or reads my books. I really appreciate your support!

Mark

You were a damn talented 12 year old! I'm only a year older than you were then, and I would NEVER have the patience to draw that! xD

I saw this on one of your youtube videos, I was amazed by how talented you were, (still are :) ) at such a young age. I've been watching your videos since I was around eight. I am fourteen now, and your videos and drawings that you post on here still inspire me to draw, wether it is somthing as amazing as Manga, or somthing as beautiful as landscapes. I enjoy it very much. Thank you.
