I like looking through another artist's gallery and seeing how they improved over time but for my gallery I see something old and I'm just like "NOPE. NOPE. BURN." A lot of my older deviations I deleted, which I kinda regret since they're now lost. My biggest problem is looking at a deviation of mine and Deviantart is all "More by LackadaisicalLeopah" and it's a bunch of ancient art. I'm trying to resist deleting them so in case anyone cares they can see the improvement.
I like seeing their old art and their new art compared and then sitting there like wow that could be me in like two years if i practice (which i do every day cx) i find it inspirational and i also find myself able to trust them more when i can see their older pictures with more flaws more idk why tho
Yeah, I like seeing people's old art because, indeed, you can see how they developed, and also because there might be an old art trade you had with the person there, or maybe gift art they once made you. That's why I keep up my old art. xD
