So. I used to really enjoy painting and drawing. However, I haven't done any for... oooh. Donkey's years, except making birthday and valentine's cards and such. I've recently decided to get back into it all, as I used to love charcoals, pencil drawings, painting with acrylics, watercolours, Chinese ink drawings and so on. My older sister is incredibly artistic and flexible with her mediums and subjects so she used to catch my imagination and lead me to try new and interesting things. Sadly , I own very little of the stuff that I've done as most of it got lost, given away or chucked, save for one rather nice Chinese ink drawing of a bamboo.
However, whilst digging out all of my equipment I found a few pictures of mine I didn't know that I actually have left, which reminded me that I used (ten years ago) to have the beginnings of some talent, but never did anything with it.
So, here's some of the shit I found in my parents' attic, but I'd like you guys to post what you've done, to point me (and other forum users) towards different areas of experimentation and to generally inspire new works of loveliness.

And, being a big nerdly nerd, sci fi:
And (v. basic sketch of) aeroplanes:
Fucked the roundel on the side of that one, but there we are.
