As a growing artist, one of the things I like to do is look back on some of my old drawings (despite a lot of them being quite cringe worthy...) and see how much I've come along and improved. When doing just that just a moment ago, I noticed I drew this particular drawing of Frida I believe in 2013. For some reason, I've always felt that I shouldn't redraw photos that I've already drawn - drawing pictures from the same photo shoot, that's fine, but I never like redrawing photos, so I was surprised that I ended up drawing the same photo of Frida for her birthday last month. I decided to take this opportunity, however, to compare both drawings that were done 5 years apart. And I must say, I am impressed. Even though I did the second one digitally, so I have a lot more control on color variety and stuffs so you can't really compare it to a drawing that is (badly) colored in with CraZart color pencils, but I think it definitely shows how I've learned to blend and actually take my time in trying to get a drawing to look good.
Anyways, I'm proud of how much I've accomplished, and I like seeing how much I've grown.
