The Newbie Artist Training Ground II is completed. Done. Over with. Finished. I can't think of any more synonyms.
Let me first say that I am immensely grateful for the views, favorites, and comments I've received. I know I still have a long way to go before my art stops being laughable, but knowing that people were seeing my improvement and encouraging me to push onward. Most of the time, into the wee hours of the night, wondering how to get it all done. At times, I may have failed, but at least I gave it the best I could.
As for how much I actually improved, I can't say. Skill fluctuates, and even experienced artists have off-days, right?
