this was done in 2006. It is actually the first I ever submitted to DeviantArt and one of my firsts with photoshop.
This is the same picture, redone in 2011.
I saw many people doing this and instead of using my little spare time to do things I should actually do, I decided to give the meme a try. The concept is to take an old picture you used to like and redraw it with your current skill level to see if there was an improvement.
Even though I haven't improved nearly as much as I would have wanted. It still shows that there was some improvement along the way and that It will, hopefully continue that way. :)
The idea to do this came from Bampire's "draw it again" meme. Original can be found here.
