I found a sketchbook from 2004 and decided to revisit a few of the drawings with my current skillset! I remember what I wanted to achieve at the time but couldn’t because I was struggling with volumes, gesture, and confidence in my linework. I always recommend this exercise to people who are struggling with art block so they can see how much their work has evolved, even if it’s just over the course of a few months - it really helps put your skills into perspective!
last two images are of crysta from ferngully, and ariel from the little mermaid drawn on paper and scanned into photoshop; 2004 versions were drawn with tria makers/van gogh pencils/mechanical pencils, and the 2016 versions are all mechanical pencils scanned into photoshop and then colored/edited to resemble the original versions.

I loved that movie a lot
But even then, you had a good grip on proportions too. It's funny to see how much your art style changed that much tho
