    Something that always helps you reflect on how far you've come with art progress is to compare similar art from a long time ago with where you're at now.

    For example, I feel really stuck lately and like it's really hit and miss when I make something, and yet, I went and dug up the oldest digital portrait I could find in my dA and put it next to my newest, and felt relieved to see I use hue shifting, better alignment, better semi realism and better colour schemes overall, even if there are still things I really want to get better at.

    It doesn't have to be a redraw of the same thing necessarily, but if you have some similar images and add the dates, feel free to share your progress too :)

    (I've started doing art rather recently, compared to a lot of people here, but I can tell that there's a vast improvement I've done since I've been here.)

    You have come such a long way, Aero. I can see traces of the base artwork in the new style, but it looks so much more amazing now.

    If I ever think my drawings are bad now, I just look back a little while and see how far I've come.

    I actually did a 'draw this again' challenge back in 2015, see for yourself:

    And here are some others:

    ^ I was going to post my latest digital drawing, but it contained blood and I'm not too certain about LV's guidelines regarding gore.

    Hope I'm still allowed to post in this thread.
    Anyway here is my art improvement over the years. I still suck, but I will admit I have improved.

    [​IMG]
    this is the one Pokémon oc that has stayed by my side for three or four years now. i was in 9th grade when i drew this and i was still drawing deviantart anime since i was a fucking weeb. anyway im sorry for disgracing you my poor sweet girl

    [​IMG]
    even my digital stuff sucked lmao. i seem to like disgracing my ocs is this part of the Tragic Backstories i loving give each one

    tl;dr: my art flipped from deviantart anime to something reminiscent of the golden ago of american animation what a plot twist given how anime and cartoons art the exact opposite of each other
