An interesting "assignment" as part of a portfolio renovation project, to recreate an older artwork using your current skills and knowledge. The top one was done in 1996, not long after discovering Photoshop for the first time (version 5, I believe). I think it shows. OMG filters and effects!
It was done before digital cameras, so I had to dig out the original photo and rescan it, so it's of a lot lower resolution than I'm used to.
I already have to stop myself from working current artwork to death as it is, so I had to stop before going overboard here too. You ultimately can't rewrite history, or redraw it, rather. But I'm pleased to see that I have improved over the years.
