This is great depiction of the evolution of art. You started with the evolution from about 1850 and on, would have loved you to go back even further.

That's disappointing if a lot of people really had that experience. I took an art course in college, and it was very helpful (and our model had a nice body, and she was actually attending art school on a different campus so she walked around during breaks to look at our work and give suggestions), I learned a lot and more importantly improved exponentially.

This is followed by a 3 phases: #1) Uncontrollable breathing #2) Impatiently waiting and looking at the screen for 10 minutes, hoping it will be just fine #3) Accepting your fate #4BONUS) You will think about this mistake for the rest of the week

Doing CTRL + Z is probably the most common. So is CTRL + Y, but we all know we can't get back that perfect line, once it's erased.

In my case, I've gotten positive reactions so far. But remember - if you wanna make people percieve your drawing as a present, make sure you don't just give them paper. Put your work in a frame if it's for, for example, your teacher, or a protective plastic foil if it's for a friend.
