Draw This Again Meme by Radittz Draw This Again Meme by Radittz
Long story short, recently(I mean for last two years) I'm really depressed about my artwork and lack of progress. I decided to try this meme prove myself that whole time of very little activity wasn't completely wasted. I used to like a lot the first picture and somehow even with all anathomy errors it's still one of my more popular works. I tried to make the second one much quicker then the original, so the differance wouldn't about additional details.

It's one of my oldest original characters but her design evolved a little bit - that's why I had to change wings and hairstyle.

I'll post a bigger version of the second picture tomorrow :)

A segunda é muito melhor em quase todos os aspectos. As pessoas só estão dizendo que preferem a primeira por ela ter saído com uma composição melhor: ela está mais equilibrada, por causa do formato das asas e do cabelo liso.
Outra coisa é a personalidade da mulher: a personalidade da antiga combina mais com o cenário e as cores utilizadas.

Os detalhes das plantas, as dobras do vestido, as cores das frutas, o cabelo, o sombreamento, os detalhes, a curvatura das asas, cada pena, o brilho visível da luz do sol por entre as nuvens... o progresso é visível, e o novo desenho é incrível :)

Não sei inglês o bastante pra escrever tudo isso que eu queria, então vai em português, mesmo... tenho fé de que alguém vai conseguir entender isso.

You've defiantly improved, but both drawings are amazing works of art! Honestly, ergoploxy couldn't have summed it up better.
KatrinaIorio Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014
You are an amazing artist ... Never forget that!! *thumbs up*

From a technical standpoint, the 'after' is much, much better IMO. The anatomy is better, the colours are varied a lot more making it look more crisp and less flat as the 'before'. Shadows are a lot more defined and realistic. Everything from the wheat, to the fruit, to the clouds is more detailed and less blurred out than in the original. So yeah, great improvement.

While the firs tone was great, the second is just ADORABLE! <33
JaredTheDragon Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
You've definitely progressed, but both are still great images!  The anatomy issues aside, the first ain't bad. Your update however is just gorgeous, and I love the detailing!

a very nice work !
monkeynova Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013  Student
The second one shows obvious improvements, I'd say. However, I think the atmosphere is nicer in the first one - the wind in the wheat and the soft painting style

Was you in the Japan Expo ? Cause I saw a wallpaper of this draw in
deeclear Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I like aspects from both pieces. I love the wings from the before but the clouds from the after. I like the dress and the way it looks as if it has depth and the bird from the after but the hair and the face from before. Since I don't know how to draw at all I love both pieces.
Bean-Sprouts Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2013
I definitely like the before one better but you can definitely see the technique improvment on the after one. There's more attention to detail and skill but I think the softness is more fitting for this picture.
SisterOfScarletDevil Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I rather like both.... I like the softness to the first one, but something about the details and the brightness of the second pic draws me in.... Beautiful work! ^.^
Sushi-Ice-Cream Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
Ahaha! So different. But so good both.... Even better now! ^^ :heart: It's really neat to see the differences.

She is pretty :D
SLawsonDesigns Featured By Owner May 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
Honestly? I like the overall aesthetic of the first picture better, but there is definitely a lot of improvement and obvious change in technique from the before to the after; almost as if you've developed two successful styles here :)
lightningshinobi Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Dang that improved :squee:
aliursa Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2013  Student General Artist
O wow i can really see the improvement!! How long was it from the original that you drew from the newer version?
kashirarosea Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
This is ALOT of progress. Both are really good. :D
Luckyjinx15 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i like the former picture...she is prettier....but the later version is more realistic
sage666 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013   Digital Artist
They look so different it's hard to decide with one looks cuter. Both faces are cute in it's own way.
Everything else is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better in the newer version though.
The details, change in character design, and especially the portrayal of depth.
BloodWillow Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Great work! The original was pretty good on its own, but you really improved upon it.
Oh-My-Maple Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Damn it... I can't even get to the level of the older drawing xD
DeClaviLLe Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013
its a great work of and old drawing
Nyaka-Hime Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Funny how I feel the Before was perfect in its imperfection :)
Yuka-Strike Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You are very talented. Wow. Good for you. Admirable.
PiecesOfSteel Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I actually prefer the newer picture. You have improved a lot with detail, shading. The biggest improvement are the wings since in the before picture, the anatomy of the wings are incorrect.
lunatykpandora Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Professional General Artist
I really admire this, especially because I'm stuck in the same situation - I feel like my skills have stagnated through lack of use lately, so in a way it makes me feel a bit better to know that even amazing artists feel this way. I can see incredible improvement in your skills from the previous piece to the newer one, though they are both lovely, I can tell that you have worked very hard to build upon and advance your techniques to create the style you have today. Colour me super impressed!
claudek Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013
Well, I'm gonna go out on a limb here... but I actually prefer the newer one; don't get me wrong, the older one has a nice, softer colour style to it and I do see it's appeal (reminiscent of a page-book kinda style)... HOWEVER, the anatomy has improved a great deal, there is more detail on the dress, got better and drawing hands I see (XD still has trouble myself).

Brilliant picture though, definately keep it up! :D
Tobal-gz Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Both are wonderful but the color values and your technique is inccredible on the second, Really amazing improvement.
CharmyRaven Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You were pretty good before. The highlights and the added detail in the after is awesome though.
reichiru-chan Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
the overall body on the first one I like. the second one gained detail in the dress and the birds improved. If you combined the 2 of them you would get something amazing that I would totally buy :) but overall I love your work
Meganze Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013
I prefer the face and wings of the before picture, can you do a after-after picture?
mouseanderson Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Love both, but I do think the second shows a definate increase in ability.
Kyuuketsuuki Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013
I think they both look great!
TigerOtter7 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
the are both absolutely amazing, but the after is so much more amazing!
Susaleena Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is inspiring! You've def improved from 2007 but I think I like the before more just because I like the softer look:love: Both are really amazing though!
frostedmidnight Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
an excellent depiction of your evolution as an artist--your proportions are much better now :)
Neoixan Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the improvement.
Honey-Bee89 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looking at these two drawings side by side, there's an obvious improvement from 2007 to 2013. Those people who say that your art skill is the same but just in a different style - DON'T LISTEN TO THEM. Your anatomy has improved, your colouring, background, composition and technique has all improved. While the first one has a certain charm about it, the second one is far better overall: it's more full of life, more realistic, and the characters really stand out. The 2007 drawing is good, but the 2013 one is purely fantastic and you should be proud of yourself.

Nice work! :heart:
Radittz Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thank you so, so much. I was a little bit sad about some comments, esp ones about regress...

Words like yours make me so much more confident about my current skills :hug:
Honey-Bee89 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Like I said, don't listen to them. People have their preferences of what kind of style they're into, and while they're free to like one drawing over another, to say that there's been no improvement is just a bold faced lie. If they actually looked over the drawings more carefully, they'd see drastic improvement in many areas. I mean, look at those wrinkles across her waist! And how detailed the wheat is at her feet. The ground and sky are separated now instead of being blended into each other, the dress is more detailed, her body has more of a shape to it, the wings are better (not because they're folded, but because they're much bigger and will be able to handle her weight now), the hair is more lively, the eyes more striking, and I could just go on and on.

Anyway, I'm glad my comment could cheer you up! You've made great progress between then and now, and I'm certain you'll only continue to improve with each artwork you create. Don't ever feel discouraged for any reason because you're a wonderful artist. :hug:

Yes, the hair, wings and clouds all look much better the second time around

I like the one before for the soft shading, but the after has better anatomy
