Don’t Trash Your Old Masterpieces!

Standard

Yesterday, when I was cleaning and throwing away my old stuff, I found this picture I drew back in 2009:

I remember back then I was pretty satisfied with this drawing. But yesterday, when I looked at it again, I knew I could do better. Apparently, this is the reason for me to keep my old stuff, because I know whether I’ve improved or not by looking at them years later. So, it’s good when it’s crappy! 🙂
