Meme BEFORE + AFTER by Toto-the-cat Meme BEFORE + AFTER by Toto-the-cat
Nothing much to say about this, hu? It's not really that I was intentioning to draw the old drawing again, but since I have both of them now and when I had mailed them to Chi, I recognized the first one was just/ already about 1 year old... I thought, it would make a nice thing to use the meme to show my development.

I mean... 1,5 years... This is really something one can be proud of, right? Look at the difference! And it's for sure not all due to the markers! (I won't give attention to any comment which will be like "aaaw, glad you got the markers, blabla, holy markers bla"!)

jhgncjnhujslfcdfxb I raise my glass and give a thank-you-toast to you guys! :iconchampagneplz:

I think you really tightened up the design. I mean the other is really pretty, but some of the detail is vague. The new one is very clear, good lines and nice color, deeper, readable so to speak. The hair also benefitted from the tighter look, more tame and less "large". I say this as someone who has a horrible habit of monster sized hair.

This is really amazing improvement for just a year and a half! I mean, the older one looks great and all, but your style has developed much more since then! I really like how you draw faces nowadays, too. :)

Omg markers instantly make you art art god!!!?!1 :lol: I kid, I kid! Looking great, definitely shows how much dedication you've put in over the last 1.5 years! There are alot of changes between the two styles, but the most notable for me is the use of colour, creating much more depth and life in the image :)

Wow your style has changed quite a lot! :heart: She looks more mature now and you've gotten better at proportions and anatomy.
Also the depth of your shading is fantastic, more darker tones really make your current work come to life making it look less flat.
But I must say I love the old piece too, such gentle and light colors really make the piece look sweet and serene.

Wow, thank you so much for your constructive feedback and opinion! *3* ...and yes, I learned some things about lining and shading technics. The old piece is nice, I think, but flat. :B (I must take care to not get too determined with the new level.)
