Artists Recreate Their Old Work To Show How Much They’ve Improved

“It doesn’t matter how good you think you’ve become,” wrote the artist behind this The Last of Us piece. “You’re always going to get better. Honestly, just like back in 2013, I feel this 2015 is the best I’m gonna get. But who knows. Maybe in 3 years I’ll draw him again and look back and cringe at the 2015 one too.”

Ivana recreated her drawing of musician Mika from two years prior and couldn’t believe the improvement she made. “I made the most progress with drawing hair,” she wrote on DeviantArt. “I can’t believe I was so terrible in 2015. How did my teachers even like that drawing?”

Kate shared a comparison of two picture she drew of Dongwoo after five years of hard work. “This visible difference is honestly really baffling to me,” Kate wrote on DeviantArt. “Being able to see my improvement is such a confidence boost.”

Jade Mere shared how this community inspired her to grow as an artist, writing, “I was 17 years old in 2005. I never drew anything before 2005. 2005 was the year I joined DeviantArt, and it actually inspired me to start drawing. I’m still amazed at all the talented people on here.”
