Success usually takes time and a lot of practice and perseverance. Even talent takes time and practice. You might have a gift, but you gotta’ work hard to perfect it. This is what the “Draw This Again” meme or challenge is trying to show us. It convinces artists to present two versions of the same artwork side by side. One is an early version and the other is the newest version. This way you can see the progress the artist has made during time and it is quite visible. From simple sketches, just a few lines that show the shape of a human face, to an elaborate, colored portrait, it is a long way and it proves that nobody is born a master. You have to work your way up to the top!
