Song of Ice and Fire: Arya Redeux by karniz Song of Ice and Fire: Arya Redeux by karniz
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Drawn: February 2011 & January 2012
Program: Pencil & Paint Tool Sai
From: George R. R. Martin's "Song of Ice & Fire"


I am still in-progress of reading this series: Please refrain from posting spoilers - Thank you.

After finishing Book Three I really, REALLY badly wanted to draw Arya as a "Water Dancer".
Reason for this being a two-part illustration is because I used the left side, which was illustrated back in February 2011 and updated it! [the piece never made it online due to the fact that there were so many mistakes... -_-;;]

The new one isn't perfect - art is an ever changing task to get better, but it's an improvement! XD
This was completed for the Weekly Art Challenges over on Tumblr!

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

I'm so confused which way her body is going.

Love it. 2011's has a unique style, but looked ugly. 2012's has the same unique style but looks beautiful.

I think I can see what :iconkataiser: and :iconmaiji: mean by the pose between the two. From the original one, it's easy to tell the direction of her body and you're able to distinguish the front of the body from the back, as has been mentioned.

As for the newer one, if you don't pay close attention, you may be confused as to where the body is really facing (that is, until you see the hands and legs). There's something odd about the upper torso bit of her body. Maybe if that part was turned clockwise a little, it could appear more, I don't know, natural. Otherwise, I rather like the new one. Great attention to detail.

Btw, I'm no good when it comes to the human anatomy in art form, but I think I managed to explain what I wanted to (I hope).

yush, that's why I wasn't 100% pleased with the new version either! Haha~
I think I tried to alter it just a bit from the original to keep it from looking just like a line-for-line redraw. Alas, that's why I never revisit old art.

Seeing the progress here is pretty cool. Did you completely re-draw it, or altar/improve the old one?

I was always really terrible at trying to draw the same thing in the same pose as a previous attempt, the newer ones always looked worse than the older. Not sure why...
Looks like the left side just came to life over on the right.

I actually used the old one as a reference, and redrew the illustration.
Used things that I had noticed from the previous version; her arms weren't right, and the body stature didn't flow well, and the water was more cloud-like than water - and made adjustments as I saw fit. ^^

I am a little more than half way through book one. I can't wait to find out more about her in future books since she is my favorite character.

I like both..I think you've improved in some ways, but your so talented I just think it's a different interpretation. Heh~ either way- lovey stuff!

... I like how you put that, a "different interpretation"... sounds, intelligent!

I find myself agreeing with :iconkataiser: - I think from the waist up, the original pose is cleaner in terms of being able to see the natural position of the body (i.e. distinguishing front and back). Regardless, your linework in this is stunning!

ugh, but the arrrmmsss! [especially her right one...] They're too short! hahahaha~
I agree, yep yep. I liked 'things' from the first one too...
Shame, since I had a hard time getting the new one done as I started hating it like I always do when I was down to the last bit of the piece... guh, always happens... hehe.

I think that the older one has a better pose in general, honestly. Dunno why. Maybe poise looks better? But the newer one is definitely more detailed.
