To be honest scanning and uploading my older work was actually killing my creativity. I found myself pouring over older images (some stuff from my portfolio goes all the way back to '99) and thinking, 'I could've done that better'. That's always useful to an artist, trying to get better, but you have to be careful you don't become stun-locked into trying to improve your technique to the exclusion of all your creativity. I was stuck in a rut doing the same old thing when one of the reasons I joined deviant art in the first place was to be inspired, to try new things and push myself in new directions. I really need to concentrate on that right now.
