Another one of those helpful journals~
Cuz I love making these.

Okay so this time it's more of a challenge for you all, should you be willing to accept it!
Okay this time I want to show you the difference a few years can make.

Step 1:
Take an old drawing, doesn't have to be years old just maybe 1-2 years ago.
Here's mine:
Kitty Ninja by KeyaraHedgehog09
It was done about 3 years ago.

Step 2:
Redraw it, look at how you drew it and recreate it in your style now. Don't focus too much on how you drew your anatomy then, instead get the basic pose in your head and draw it out. Then build up your details.

Step 3:
Look at the newer version, here's mine:

Step 4:
Put them side by side.

Now take a long hard look, notice the changes?
Some changes will be gradual and at a slower pace than others, so don't be disappointed if you don't see much, it still shows your growing as an artist and of that you should be proud!

Step 5: (Final)
Post your pictures (old and new) in a journal titled "Improvement" and share it with your watchers, or use the draw this again meme.

This is to try to boost confidence, so if you post yours and link me on this journal I will feature them.
And when I do I expect to see people commenting on them and encouraging the artists! This is about helping others after all :)

Remember you don't have to do this if you don't want to, but I'd recommend trying it out just to see how far you've come you may surprise yourself.
