I used to think that I drew the art for Centipede Dragon in this manner because I can't draw any better. But as I was clearing out my old artwork from my parents’ house, every time I picked up a piece, I noticed that this style was persistent throughout the years of learning 1- and 2- point perspective, contour drawing, and core and cast shadows.
I know children start out drawing in this very flat manner anyway, but I seem to prefer drawing this way. Not that "Glomerulus" from the previous post wasn't satisfying, especially at 3am in the morning when I was painting the highlights on all those individual cells. But I impart of piece of me into pieces like "Bumblebee, circa 1976-77," whereas with "Glomerulus," my job is NOT to do so. And maybe that's the ultimate reason why one type of style is more suited to me than another.
