- A Year and a Half Later - by coreymill - A Year and a Half Later - by coreymill
= Full View =

Sorry that it's a kinda large file.

- Anyway, a friend of mine from LJ suggested that I do this while I was in my slump and it's something that I always thought looked like fun. So even though I have gotten out of my slump I went ahead and did it anyways.

- - The whole idea is to redraw something that you did awhile ago so I went through my gallery and found an old pic ( about a year and a half old maybe a bit more ) and decided to draw it. Before starting I was a bit worried that I would discover that I really hadn't improved all that much over the last year and a half. But I am relatively pleased with the improvement and changes that have been made. ^~^


= Here's to hoping that I can get a ton better in the coming years!!

You know this pic actually inspired me a little bit. I really like how expressive your eyes are. They are simple but really full of emotion. I went and drew some people after seeing this. Your progress is amazing. The character in the top one is pretty tough looking as is. But the second one is even edgier. Nice Nice :D

Thank you very much, it's always odd for me to have someone say that I inspired them to do something. Because, I am always so impressed and inspired by so many other people myself.

If I may make a suggestion though, It seems like his tie may break where it is connecting to the part ... where it ties (OMG DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE???) okay... the part above the triangular shape looks too thin. there. please tell me that made sense.

anywho, didn't mean to rag on this extremely awesome piece :D It's fun to see how people change :D
