So... four years. I'm glad I've learned some things. I always thought this meme was pretty cool, so hey - why not give it a try?
I chose this one because... well. I believe the original was one of my first attempts at an entirely digital piece. In the GIMP.
Several upgrades in software and hardware have certainly given me an edge over my old work, but boy... the things I've learned about lighting, color theory, volume, the structure of the human face
... granted; it's still rather stylized, but hey look! The mouth actually lines up properly! One of the funniest things about the old one, was the absence of the second eye - I just couldn't draw it at that angle, so I left it out! lol
Makes me wonder..... what will my work look like in another 4 years?
