Old vs. New Improvement meme by KanuTGL Old vs. New Improvement meme by KanuTGL
One of those "Draw this again" memes. I really like looking at those C:

Comparing my very first "serious" attempt at drawing a cub Simba to my latest serious attempt at drawing a cub Simba. It's been just over seven and a half years... Shows that with enough time, effort and dedication I can actually improve.

At least somewhat. There is a huge difference, but I always feel that something is amiss in my art. It's not... "alive". It just feels... stiff. I don't have "it". And if you don't have "it", I wonder if there is any way to ever be successful in an artistic profession.

Aanyway... Time, effort, dedication. If I can do this, so can you! :D

Thank you very much! ^^ The best advice I can give you is to practise, practise and then practise some more. There are no shortcuts in art, unfortunately xP Use lots of photo references (not for copying line by line, but so that you know what your subject looks like) and there is a great amount of resources and tutorials here on dA to look at :)

I think your drawings are already looking very good though ^^ So keep up the good work!
