Improvement isn't an overnight thing. And you don't really see you're improving unless you place two different artworks from two different times of your life side by side.
Like what I'm doing right here.
See, I've always been an impatient person. But I'm more so an impatient creator. When it comes to my art and my writing, I want to hurry, hurry, hurry.
Hurry up and improve on your anatomy, Kate.
Hurry up and draw good noses, Kate.
Hurry up and write engaging stories, Kate.
Hurry up and create awesome content, Kate.
Hurry up, Kate.
I keep on pushing myself to hurry hurry hurry. That I need to keep moving forward. And more often than not, I forget to stop for a while and look back to see how far I've come.
So here I am, doing exactly that.
