This was a lot of fun to do! I love revisiting old works, especially when the old ones are so bad I want to run screaming into the night.
Anyway, I've never entered an art contest before. Ever. I never really feel like I can stand up to the competition, so I defeat myself before I even try. But this time it involved looking at your progress as an artist, and that's something I can honestly feel kinda proud of. Because I feel like I've come a long way. So I figured that is the best reason to enter a contest; when you actually feel good about yourself. This made me see that I've really pressed forward all these years, and I still am, and probably always will. old version: 2005new version
