Draw this again: Anima by DamaiMikaz Draw this again: Anima by DamaiMikaz
I already did this a few weeks back, but when I saw this contest, I immediately wanted to submit this to it, because I think it does show some great improvement.

2010 vs 2012


Edit: What's with all that crap people saying the first one is better? True... you might not like the new pose or composition or something. But from a strictly art-quality related few, the new one is way better. Or at least it has better colors and anatomy

Ah that's neat to see improvement, I like both pictures as they have a distinct but appealing difference to them. ouo

I guess the first is more eye catching. More central with the cool circle thingy? The second has better anatomy but is more faded. Les detail? It seemed washed out with all the colors being gray?

I like the second one more. He looks more uh, not-anime. Also, the colours used in the second one is nicer as well.

That's a great Idea! Both have their own emotion. I'll try that too :)

I think the reason the first one is so popular is due to the fact it's anime. Anime is very popular around here for some unknown reason (sorry, no offence intended. I never got why anime was/is so appealing)
I do like the colour in the first ones eyes though. I like blue.. A lot.
But the second one is a lot better, it looks painted whereas he first one doesn't in a way. If you know what I mean.. I'm really bad at explaining what I mean which is why I'll probably never make a proper tutorial.

What IS all this crap about the before being better?
I can imagine its because the before one looks 12x more animu than the new one, which animu is pretty popular at the moment.
I love the new one! :heart: It's all around improvement, and the media just looks better (along with the anatomy c; ).
Keep up the good work!

I like them both. The difference is how old they look. The first one looks young, like a child. The second one looks much older and more detailed. Both are amazing!

I have to say I like both. The first one shows more body, pose and all, but in the second you can see a definite improvement on color usage, like you;re not scared of using bright and lively colors, which is awesome. The hair also seems more detailed. Good job.

Thanks a lot for your comment.
I've got so many comments on this one that say they like the first one better (or something alike) that I got kinda frustrated. You're the first one that actually points things out. Thanks for that :)
