So, I found some old drawings I had made during the 1990s when I was a child. Only one had a date on it (the gorilla from 1997 — in which I would have been age 13 or 14), but I recognize from the poses and textures that all of the drawings come from a “how-to-draw” animals book I got as a kid. I’m guessing the more primitive-looking drawings are from an earlier date, such as 1995, so I assume I drew them all around the same year (in which I would have been 12 years old). This year (2017), I redrew some of the animals, and you can see the comparisons below . . .
