I've always wanted to redo a childhood drawing.
Fourteen years ago, I designed this dragon - http://imgur.com/a/GWL88 I would not say that this image represents fourteen years of progress, because when I was that age I did not take art very seriously. What matters is not the amount of years so much as the hours spent trying to improve myself. It's difficult to put a number on it, but my rough guess is that between the photo and this painting there is about 9000 hours worth of work.
Hope you all enjoy!
