It's like I took the pixels out of her head, and injected them into the rest of her body. :rswt

I remember thinking how much I liked the way it looked back in 2016. I thought I was content and didn't need to improve anymore. Now I take a look at the 2016 and think, "I need more practice." :kaoback:

I also have a very honest little cousin. He keeps comparing me to pros that have 15 years plus experience or more. :kaoangry:
His criticisms always felt like daggers hitting my body, but now I just face his comments head on and keep pushing myself :kaosalute:

@Enigma_Productions Yeah Its always better to comapare yourself, to a past version of yourself (Like with Draw again) then only to others. Esspecially ones 15 years ahead of you O_O, but even if they are near your age, it just makes un-needed stress,...I used to do it alot..
Good to here you face it head on now ^-^
Your making great progress, I see you move to some nice soft shading!

Also....when did the forum get emojis? O_O //stares at your post



Thought I'd post my re draw!

Will anyone yell at me if I "draw" my music again?

OLD (End of 2014)


NEW (Beginning of 2018)


This was one of the very first pieces I did when I started using VSTs and learning to mix my music. I think the clarity and overall power is apparent in the new one. I was so new to the idea of mixing, that you'd never hear it but I DID use bass drums in the old one! WOW! I can only hear them now! I was never able to get a low whistle to sing above the orchestra either, so I had to use a classic flute in the old one to pierce the rest of the ensemble. Well. Now I have my big boom drums and Irish whistle.

@Alexander Hawksmoor Mostly because I work full time in a hospital and want to get a higher degree, but I'm also a pretty slow worker and find it a lot more satisfying to take my time creating stuff 100% on my own wavelengths. I really, really have to jive creativity with someone to find the joy. I did take commissions for awhile but I found it started robbing me of the intense joy that music gives me.

@Ms Littlefish That's understandable. I suppose when people ask me why I don't draw even though I'm capable of drawing, I just don't have time, and I'm too perfectionistic meaning I would never finish my drawing cause I'd always be trying to improve it.....

your music was gorgeous ^ ^ it's definitely art to me. you work in a hospital I read. I have no doubt you'd soothe your patients with this lovely music.

@Iuzi Very nice improvement! I love her outfit!

@eadgear I remember when you posted the original comparison and
I thought the improvement was huge, but this time it’s even better! I love the muscle detail and her expression.

@hexmozart he looks so sad :( but great improvement!

@JtheDuelist Was the original done on a 3ds? I noticed the Pokémon Art Academy logo. Regardless nice proportions and it looks good for such an ambitous pose!

I’d like to show how one of my characters has evolved over these past years and just my general improvement over three years.

Here’s the very first drawing of Ren. Dated December 4 2015

February 9th, 2016 my second digital attempt ever.

April 23rd, 2017 There’s a few issues with this one, like the height of her hair and her nose. This is also the mode I’ve ever redesigned her outfit.

December 22nd, 2017 Going back to her original design with altered colours I still really like this picture.

May 2nd, 2018 Here’s her most recent incarnation. I altered the colours somewhat but what I feel I really improved on was her hair.

I think Kipling said it best.

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
⁠And never breathe a word about your loss,
(...)
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
⁠And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!


Do you feel like your modern cities are too clean? I made some dumpsters and trash variations. Visit my MZ resource thread (link in signature).
Doing clean-up on tall-ified sprites, filling in pixel by pixel where the stretching warped the image, feels incredibly tedious but also highly rewarding when one zooms out and the sprite looks even better than before.
