Draw this again 2010 vs 2013 by pikachu-25 Draw this again 2010 vs 2013 by pikachu-25
Well, some kind of improvement has happened during these years I think :'D
2010:
Back then I didn't use graphic tablet, only a mouse. My main colouring programs were Gimp2 and MS Paint (yeah, I know) and I wasn't very good at using layers which made things very difficult. 2010 was the last time I drew any kind of Crash fan art and after that I drew pretty much everything else. The 2010 version was a Father's Day card for my Dad and he liked it very much. He said something about tattooing it to his arm and now on year 2013 I'm extremely happy he didn't do so.. The old one looks pretty horrible :'D I also wasn't able to draw that underwater-machine-thingy-whatever-it's-called. (and what the hell was I thinking when I made the background to that? I just don't know...)

2013:
I'm using Wacom Bamboo -tablet. My colouring programs are Photoshop CS6 and Paint Tool SAI though I use SAI much more often than Photoshop. I'm better at using layers and I know my programs much better than I did on 2010 which makes it easy to me to finish my works faster than I did back then. I know how to use colours better and I understand distances more clearly than I used to. Still I have some difficulties but hey, who doesn't? I can draw some things I couldn't back in 2010 and also I can handle anatomy things better.. Though I still have much work to do. The 2013 version is a Birthday card for my Dad and I hope he likes this one more than the older one.. I really do hope..

I wanted to do the new one pretty much different because the original was just.. boring? The character is in the middle of the picture surrounded by all these bright colours and such. Of course the look is very video game like but still.. It just don't give anything anymore.. at least to me.
In the newer version I tried different colouring style, different pose and tried to make it look more mysterious. It's not boring anymore in my opinion but of course there are many ways to look and rate art so... At least for me the new one is much more interesting piece to view than the older one but maybe that's just because I'm the artist behind this... who knows :'3

Ja minä vastaan tähän varsin taitavasti about puoli kuukautta myöhässä, pahoittelut epäaktiivisuudestani :'D
Mutta Kiitos tosi paljon <3 Olin Desuconissa katsomassa paneelin värien käytöstä taiteessa ja päätin itse kokeilla oppimaani tässä työssä : D
Mutta ei se helppoa ole, monta tuntia on tätä uurrastettu ja silti lopputulos ei ollut ihan sitä mitä odotin, mutta en valita, se näyttää hyvältä : 3

These are so hard to compare to me, because they are really different, you have definitely improved no doubt there , but I do think you were awesome 3 years back & anyone who can do THAT with paint is naturally very talented. The other one is inndeed more interesting in composition, but the first might still make a better cartoon. The second one has a very realistic sea & it really gas that "deep down under" feel, while the first one is more cartoonish. There is more light and shadow play on the new one and it's technically more impressive, but they are very diffferent & both good.

If I remember correctly, only the line art of that older art work is made on MS Paint :'3  I coloured it on Gimp2 which I rarely use nowadays because of Photoshop and it's awesomeness. But I'm happy you like them both, they are very different just as you said. Maybe I'll make a new more cartoonish version too with a line art. Somehow it fits my style better even though those more realistic works are also nice to draw. 
Thank You again for commenting~ <3
