Improvement Meme by gen8 Improvement Meme by gen8
I fell in love with this meme the instant I saw it. I am so proud of all the people showing their early art, and how they have improved so much!!

I've gone and butchered it though, and pushed it back to 1998 (because I'm SO old, I had to!). Hope the owner *Kamaniki does not mind!

I think this is a wonderful idea, and I'm really pleased to be able to show you all my journey! I hope it proves that I certainly did not start out anything like an artist, just a starry-eyed kid who loved to scribble =D

WOW! BIG improvements over the years! I've been drawling on paper forever and now I'm starting to draw my anime on the computer... I wish I could draw as beautifully as you! Maybe with enough practice I could get kinda close to your anime beauty!
