While clearing out my hard drive, I found one of my first digital art pieces from about 5 years ago. I was using a little Wacom tablet and my parent's desktop computer at the time. As you can see, I was not very good. I decided that since I've studied a lot since then, I should redraw it to see how far I've come. This is the result.
I'm still experimenting with my digital style, but I have definitely improved. Maybe I'll redraw it again in another 5 years, who knows! Upwards and onwards.
