With this new year beginning i've set myself the challenge of remaking an old art. The livestream audience chose the chapter 10 cover from 10 years ago. A fitting theme for it matched with Lunareth own challenge of remaking something from 2004.
I used every tricks i learned in the last 2 years  though i had to keep Chirinide old purple armor as this will replace the old cover in our archive.

Oh my goodness I didn't know there was a deviantart page for Drowtales! Best surprise ever to stumble upon today. :D

That's a really amazing transformation!

I really need to start reading again. XD

Brilliant recreation, it was one of the first chapters I read( started from the remade chapter 8, read to the end of 10, and gone back to read Drowtales properly) You were allready a pretty good artist then Kern, but improving and improving through the 10 years, you are now pretty much in the professional league among comic/manga artists, with your own characterstic style!

Then you started reading at te same time as Kite! she too started at 10.
Pro is a term refering to someone whose job is to do something. Even back then it was my job. Shows that it doesn't take "pro-skill" to be a "pro", just a lot of dedication. But thank you, i appreciate your comment.

gotta like the difference 2004 stiff characters then 2014 a more dynamic movement in the characters away from the center

Thanks. Being more flexible with motion is one of the thing that come with experience.

I sat through 4 hours of this after the live stream was done because my device couldn't handle it... oh well, maybe some day I'll have an actual computer or laptop to watch a future live stream.

I always figured the blind folded archery thing had gone with the rest during the retcon.

It hardly counts as blindfolded when your bow has an eye.

It was so loyal all these years, preceding that chapter with an unfaltering devotion.  Leave it, it deserves its eternal vigil!
