Draw This Again: Spirit Taker by AlfaFilly Draw This Again: Spirit Taker by AlfaFilly
Original: [link]
Remake: [link]

Quite a startling difference, I'd say 8D

Quoted from remake description:
"After two nights of hard work I finally got this done! This is for the deviantART "Draw this Again" contest. The deadline is in... 2 hours. I GOT THIS.

So I've been wanting to redo an old picture of mine, but didn't know quite what to do. I ended up deciding to go to my very first submission on dA ever, back to 2006. Although the actual image itself is dated 2002.

10 years ago.


So much nostalgia happened while drawing this. It's really insane seeing how much I've improved in this vast of time. While I wish I had improved a slight bit more in anatomy for my quadrupeds, there's no doubt my artistic skills have excelled, especially in the digital platform. I really wanted to show the stark difference in how I've evolved from working with generic Crayola Colored pencil to Photoshop. So I really poured a lot of what I know now about shading and details into this remake. And I think it really shows!"

I have to say, this is one of the most impressive displays of improvement that I have seen so far (and believe me when I say that my watch list has been overflowing with these :lol:). I hope that you feel very proud of the love and effort that you have put into your work! It really shows. :love:

Ooh, why thank you so much! :love: Haha, I'm sure you did! I was a little disappointed as I was expecting my inbox to be flooded with them, but by the deadline only 3 others posted (or maybe just 2, I'm having trouble remembering who the third was). I could have taken a picture from my gallery from just a couple years ago (which I notice most people did) but I figured, hey, I wanna see how much I've really improved, so I'm glad my choice ended up paying off! :D
