3 years of Progress - My brother Mark by Doctor-Pencil 3 years of Progress - My brother Mark by Doctor-Pencil
I just wanted to encourage you guys and prove to you that artists are not born being as good as they will ever be!

I drew this exactly 3 years ago this month, and was about 30 days after I started drawing, after a 30 YEAR time out, HA! :D:D

FULL recent drawing

I love the difference between the portraits and it is such a good idea to post them both. It will hopefully encourage some new artists out there to just keep drawing. We can ALWAYS learn and improve. :highfive:

Yes there does seem to be a few subtle differences ......:O)

Great work as usual Rick.....im sure your parents are really pleased with it...

I have redrawn a few of my earlier stuff and even over a course of a few months i can see a difference. Its definately a worth while exercise to do for those starting out Though it maybe only subtle differences, its those differences that build your confidence up....and also with the encouragement of others on this site....

Oh wow.... now THAT'S an impressive improvement! :wow: You've really made an eye-popping production out of this piece.

I'm certain that your brother, while happy with your first work and your obvious love and devotion to him in producing it, is applauding your amazing talent and your incredible revisit of your portrait of him from heaven. :) (no offense meant if you don't believe in such - I do, and I like to believe those we love still are with us)
