There are a lot of success formulas, but probably all of them consist of practice and time, and the saying 'Practice makes perfect' is here not without reason. This is especially true for drawing, where understanding proportions, shading, and other techniques can turn a crude circle with lines into a detailed, realistic face. 'Draw This Again!' drawing challenge invites artists to re-draw their pencil sketches and drawing ideas and present them side-by-side for comparison, showcasing their skill improvement.

From pencil drawings to vibrant 3D rendering creations - these images prove that nobody was born an artist and the journey to mastering drawing involves a lot of patience and hard work. Have you also been producing some cool drawings? Then post your version of 'Draw This Again!' below and don't forget to vote for your favorite beautiful drawings!

Just one look at the age 13 drawing, it is obvious that we have a talented artist here. Not surprised at the results of the Age 23. He's going far........

The newer picture has just the perfect amount of abstract injected to create a sense of the surreal.

I like how the face of the girl on the right seems warmer and more inviting. The girl on the right's face is more cold and she seems more distanced.

I love when someone uses shadow and highlights to convey a person's nose and other facial features, vs hard lines. I love this one.

They look very different. I liked the whole going on in the background. The drawing has improved quite allot, but I wouldn't perceive it as the same.
