Touhou Youmu Konpaku [REDRAW] by Nsio Touhou Youmu Konpaku [REDRAW] by Nsio
The Gardener of Hakugyokurou... once again.

For some reason I had an idea to redraw one of my old drawings. I decided to make an updated version of this one:
Touhou Youmu Konpaku Epicry by Nsio
This drawing I made 6 years ago was definitely one of my best at the time, if not the best. There are many parts that really irk me though (like the face), so it was perfect candidate for an improved version.

Yet again I struggled with the fog. My past self has been ridiculously meticulous, I didn't have the patience to use the same method and attempt making it better. I'm not convinced with the effect I used now, but it doesn't look too bad either.

It's funny that Myon is still just as lame as it was in the original :D. I clearly shows I haven't practiced drawing ghosts.

I'll upload an art comparison later.

Program used: Paint Tool SAI 2
Post-processing: Clip Studio Paint EX
Made with Wacom Cintiq 27QHD

Original character by ZUN

Great pic, love the looking back at the little changes to the old one that make this flow so much better, and look far more powerful in the process. You can really see how your style has come along and shifted.

That said, I think my favourite bit has to be the updated lighting. That just looks fantastic.

Thanks. I'm always unsure how the colors and lighting will work since I won't see the effect until the end. Surprisingly often they end up looking quite neat, very vibrant and high in contrast.

Stunning job, really atmospheric and powerful! The cold colour palette and the chiaroscuro you used make her look quite fearsome!

Thanks! I had to look up that "chiaroscuro" though :D.

Really nice execution. I think it looks much more balanced in terms of contrast than its counterpart.

Thanks. It just show how much mere mileage has to do with it. I used pretty much the same methods color wise, but I was more informed about what works and what doesn't.
