    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:

    OH BOI

    i still cant draw to save my life

    [​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
