Helloooo Newgrounded Artists!

Remember when you were not an artist? Well at least starting to develop your ARTISTICK SKILLZ? (6th grade for me!)

If you have any old drawings, sketches, or crafts, showcase them here!

Maybe you aren't proud of it now? Show us the goods!
You proud of it when you made it? We want to see!

In any case, This thread is to show everyone those drawings you did such a long time ago.
It's cool to see how people improve!

This isn't really to show baby drawings, it's more of like 6th grade on, the time where you aren't forced to draw and you start to take it as a hobby. Showcase stuff you are (were) proud of and might remember doing.
----
I have a few, but the one I have in my computer is one I did May 2012. When I was teaching myself the ways of Photoshop. I was always so scared of using a tablet, this was my first time and after 3 hours, I made this bad boy.

(For its birthday this year, I am going to redraw him. I'm so excited :D)

I'll upload some 6th grade stuff later on.
---
Make sure to show us some of your stuff too!
Bonus points if you have a backstory to the drawing or picture.

This is not the oldest drawn that i have, but it from a age that i cannot handle the digital painting too well, and im only drawn sketches. In the actually, still im consireding a novice in all of the digital art, but step to step is the way.

Reminds me of a thread we had once, something like an old/new, where people showed off an old drawing they did, and then challenged themselves to redraw it now in order to show the improvement you've had.

I remember being happy with this back when I was 16 or 17 or something, which was more or less the first time I was consciously trying to improve my art abilities (I think I gave up practicing after about a month).

So I'll use this as an example of the first time I was proud of a drawing.

This is actually the oldest thing I have lying around on my computer apparently.
I was 16 when I made this, it wasn't one of my bestest things but I remember being pretty satisfied with it. I have some way older (and way worse) stuff lying around but that's all in non-digital media.

I'm going for old here. I can find something more recent later (maybe 2006).

Comes with a story!
