    I'm not sure what technique is this supposed to be. ''paint over photos'' I suppose.

    The best thing about DeviantArt isn't improving as an artist, it's showing everyone online that I did.

    The time span on some of those is so cringe-worthy.

    The coloring got way better, but I feel like something is way off about that newer image.

    Is it me or do I just cringe whenever people decide to go all meta on these memes, like complaining how awful you used to draw back then?

    Only when the "improved" version looks like shit too, making the artist look like an idiot.

    ^ Not sure what is objectively better about this, just looks like the style changed. Maybe the eye placement makes more sense, I dunno.

    ^ to be fair that's only a 7 day difference

    I don't see any improvement, the first one looks like an incomplete piece of shit and the second one is just the same piece of shit with close up.

    Well they're not exactly the same image, but yeah, there's no technical improvement whatsoever.

    From the artist's comment:
    Evolution of the design? You mean that the pointy bits on his hat are now on the other side? WHAT A CHANGE!

    And "a more clean/simpler style" probably translates into: "I'm not even gonna attempt to do shading this time"

    I hate it when people do this. If you want to take an old drawing of yours, why not redraw something that was actually bad (or at least mediocre)? I understand if you never took any photos (or saved any digital art) of your bad stuff, but if that's the case, and you have nothing that's noticeably worse than your current stuff, why bother?

    But yeah, the first was actually better, the second looks more flat in terms of color, that's the best I can describe it.

    Using an old piece that was bad kind of defeats the point of the meme. You're supposed to compare your best work from back then, and show how much better you are now than even your best then. It'd be rather deceitful to use a crappy piece, because everybody tends to be better on the second try with a piece, even if they haven't actually progressed their skills.

    Yes, still, not really any point when you haven't made any serious improvement (especially when you've actually gotten worse).
