Draw It Again by Artgerm Draw It Again by Artgerm
I strongly believe that this is the most inspirational deviation that I ever submitted. So print it out and hang it on your wall and scream "I can do it too!" :D

Left: When I was 15 years old.
Right: More than 2 decades later.

** I've colored the sketch and uploaded a high-res file for you to download and print if needed. Just click the download button!**

Now the difference is much more dramatic. :)

Wow, that's a lot of improvement! Although I must admit I'm partial to the one on the left. It reminds me of Rumiko Takahashi's style, and I love her artwork.

You did a great job.  I recently did my own 'then and now' and it's extremely rewarding to see how far you've come.  Just imagine how much better you'll be next time!  I agree, it is extremely inspiring to submit deviations like this.  For yourself and others.
