I Redrew My Childhood Art And Here's What Happened

I clearly peaked at 6.

Recently my mom found a bunch of my childhood art and sent me photos.

I decided to redraw some of it to see how much I've changed since then, and here are the results.

This is a pretty accurate portrayal of me as a kid: My teacher gave me an assignment and I completely disregarded it and drew whatever the hell I wanted. There's a lot going on in this drawing, which I can't even begin to explain.

I went through a phase as a kid where I intentionally misspelled words, for reasons I can't begin to fathom. I'm pretty sure those bottles say "snake gas," "poisoned water," "poisoned dragon liver," "mice blood," and "turtle shells," but that last one is a shot in the dark. I find it sort of obnoxious that I misspelled everything, so I corrected myself in the redraw.

I couldn't redraw everything, but here's some more art by Young Me for your enjoyment/dismay.
