Before/After Meme by DrManiacal Before/After Meme by DrManiacal
Usually I don't really do memes, but I thought this one was really cool. Earlier I found a bunch of old old OLD sketchbooks and junk from when I was a kid, and it was really interesting going through them. OH THE MEMORIES.

blank template is here: [link]
And here's a larger version of the "after" picture: [link]

ALSO trying out SAI paint tool, this is the first thing I've made with it. Loving it so far!

Indeed! Drawing badly made comics during writing periods, and sneaking pokemon cards into class to swap them behind the coat cabinet thing. Good times, good times.

oh my god, don't laugh at babby bowser. 10 year old me would cry.
But no, I was laughing going through these old sketchbooks as well. I will NEVER understand how my own brain worked back then lol.

Sai is awesome
Also, GOODNESS
I like that you chose such an older drawing to compare with, I really feel that it shows people how the skill really evolves :D

Yeah, definitely would not have done this if I didn't find something from way back in the day. I've seen a couple of others do this, and in every one of them you could kind of tell where the roots of the artist's growth were. VERY cool stuff haha.

What's not to love about Sai? XDD
I use that program for pretty much everything now.

And -quite- a difference.
What's the year difference though? Aprox, if you don't want to go exact.

I've only used it for this one thing, and I'm already thinking about never using anything else lolol.

But yeah, jeez. I'd say there's 10-11 years between them, I'm 21 now.

lol. Sai is just... made of win.
Although Photoshops 'transform' tool is better than Sai's DX
And sai can't say transparent .png's.
other than that, it's just made of win. Seriously. XD

And... that is quite a difference XD

I kind of feel like drawing sunglasses on it and a machine gun in its hand. 3rd grade bowser was the true OG.
