Before and After Meme: 5 Years by dwightyoakamfan Before and After Meme: 5 Years by dwightyoakamfan
Figured I do one of these since everyone seems to be enjoying them! They technically aren't the exact same photo but I feel they are similar enough. :3

I used to be so, so proud of the one on the left. I was about 12 years old on that one. It was really the first realistic work that I remember doing. Before that I was mostly into Cartoon-y stuff and Anime. So when I made this and saw how good it was (for then) I went ahead and tried some more. It also had the distinction for being the first attempt at colored pencil realistic art.

The one on the right however is a very recent piece. And I am now 17. :D You can see that drawing in full, here: [link] It is also a coloured realistic drawing. Except this one was done completely digitally as apposed to traditionally.

I may also point out--the before one took me 2 hours straight, which was also a VERY long time for me to take on one drawing for then. On the other hand, the after took me 7-8 hours straight! :)

So that's about it!
