Two years ago I was in an incredibly bad place. Shitty health, couldn't work, and all of that plunged me into an inevitable depression. I felt pretty bad about everything, and about my art as well. As health related issues limited my computer time to about 1 to 2 hours a day, I picked up the hobby of speedpainting. It helped me drag through the days. It felt good to get at least something done.
Last year, after a full year or (almost) daily painting, I redid that drawing. Same setting, same character, approximately the same time limit. I surprised even myself with how much I picked up from just one hour of painting a day.
Fast forward and it's 2016 already.
Health-wise I'm doing considerably better, though I can't draw that much anymore since my new job takes a lot of my valuable energy (and I won't have any left for drawing, unfortunately). I still love drawing, but it's going at a slower pace. I don't feel like I've improved as much as I did last year, but I feel like my overall process has become a lot more fluid. I tried to push the colors and the mood a bit more, as my main goal is to tell stories and convey emotion through art
