Drawing this Again by Parororo Drawing this Again by Parororo
Entering the contest now : D here's the template, hopefully it's good improvement.. it's... 6 years anyway. Whoa.

Somehow I feel like I would have expected more improvement for 6 long years... but oh well.

I also tried using the very same media and tools I used back then, even some of the same pencils too.

This is amazing!! One of the only drawings that actually improved. More expressive and beautiful than the first one.

Awes !!

Well, this proves that you've been at maximum level for awhile. Small variances don't change a thing.
Parororo Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I.. really feel really far far away from maximum level, it's more like I've been a bit stuck with certain things... hnng...

The old one is pretty simple. Girl sits on rock, eats fruit. One sole fruit hangs above her head, drawing attention up. Rock with face draws attention down. Not much going on in the background.

Then you've got the new one. This has the girl in an interesting pose, smelling the fruit perhaps instead of just nomming it. There is more shine in the dress, and the hair running down the front draws more attention to Mr. Rock. The tree trunks from the ground curve up from the ground, bringing the eye up to see the other background trees and the fruit hanging above the girl, who we focus back on.

The new one is a massive improvement over the old one. Yes while the old seems less human in a less human-like world, the new one has a new degree of elegance, and the format is far better.

So.. Great work :)

I like the old one better, just because her expression seems more interesting to me. She seems more human, less perfect and elegant. The old girl has a tummy on her, some messy, wispy hair, and you were less shy with the shading it seems. Your technical skills with the materials have improved, but I just like the personality of the older one better ^^;;

I love it both :) but preferred the old one.. maybe because of the background and the ambience of the picture.. :) Good job by the way! keep it up! :D

The old one is my personal fav, but the new one is awesome too!
Parororo Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much c:

This reminds me of a darker version of the nina ricci fantasy perfume advert, I don't know if you've seen it or not... I like the drawing style and the shiny apples, yum!
carla-ng Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Me encantan ambos!! :lol:
theendofmyworld Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012  Student General Artist
the first one is my favorite personally. although i like the coloring you used on the second one...
murphysmate Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012
Beautiful! Its a shame you can't see the whole frames on either of them though, I think the foot over the border on the first one and the oval shape on the second make them even better!
BlahBlah109 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
xD i <3 the 1st pose, but the 2nd drawing had better shading... i also like the 1st mushroom :3
Nisai Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012   Traditional Artist
Of course you improved but... I like the first one as well... ;w; it's not bad at all, to me they're both amazing :heart:
myeyesinthemirror Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
i really love your art, both versions are great
grisarayas-x3 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
son preciosas las dos, y se nota el cambio, pero ojo que tambien la actitud del personaje cambio
Koyanna Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Love both of them!
kizZuna Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
las amo a ambas :iconholyshitohmygodplz:
y así una al lado de la otra,casi siento como si fueran parte de un mismo dibujo y se complementaran o algo asi
jeruki Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
la mejora es notable, yo si me quedo con la segunda :D aunque la primera tambien me gusta la profundidad de la escena
roslina Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
appreciate how your technique improved, but i too would vote for the old one :)
SecretlyLaughingAtU Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
:iconfliptableplz: its so fabulous!!!!!
bottomofastairwell Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
i can't decide which one i like better. i think they're both fantastic
theNUTmeg Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I've had your old version in my inspiration file since you first put it up. It (and a lot of the work you did back then) has been inspiring me and educating me for years. So I think I'm just too biased by my love of the old to accept the new! It's great and all, but there is something so COMFORTABLE about the pose and composition and feeling in the old one that the new one doesn't have and I really like that feeling of peace with herself and the world the old one has. The new one is beautiful and I absolutely love how pretty it is, but the slouchy, slightly tired/calm of the first is my favorite.
Parororo Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really? well that's very valid there too, hehe, it's okay : > thank you for liking the old one that much~ As someone else said, the first one has a bit more of "imperfection" which makes it better anyway..
Thimbelwinter Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It seems the after is cleaner and has a different feel to it not saying you havent improved but I like them both equally for different reasons
Divuar Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Cool! I still have the old version in my digital pictures collection! The new one is even more awesome!
klydekiss Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012   Digital Artist
Even six years ago your work was boss ;o;
thespawnof66 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
I like both of them.
cursedreams Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
Believe it or not there's a really huge style change here. I love the new one, the composition is very eye catching. The way you set everything up your eyes can move through the drawing and there's always something there. This is really neat to see <3
Parororo Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that's very comforting to hear : > hehe, really, thanks a lot !
TehKatieMonster Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I love both of them. xD I remember when I was little I saw this picture and I was determined to look just like her.
mistress408 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
I like her pose on the old one better. but coloring is ofcourse improved soo much ^^
poweredjj Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Cool, but I like the old one better.
nikutsuki Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
They are both cute, but I can't really see an improvement...
Parororo Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you think so? that's sad news, but a valid comment, it would be great if you could elaborate c:
nikutsuki Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
so sorry for the late reply here, your message just got lost in my inbox D:

Well, I think both of the pictures look good, but I wouldn't say the second one is better than the first. Just somewhat different. Different pose, different angle.
I like the pose in the new picture better, but I prefer the background in the old drawing.
Well, there's six years between each picture, therefore I would have expected a bigger improvement. But that's just my opinion c:
Parororo Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It tends to happen, messages get lost in mine too : P

But thank you for taking the time to comment and elaborate, it's very appreciated. I see what you mean, and it's true, after all, it could have been better if I tried using the same pose, angle, expression and such, for comparison purposes. And, as myself, I am a little bit dissapointed too seeing that for 6 years it's not a huge improvement, but oh well, I think that can still be fixed : P

Thank you again :>
JacobyBeckz Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
I love boooth of them!!
volitious Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Professional General Artist
Your work already had a unique style would be very hard to improve because it already looked good.
the-Mad-Hatress Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Student General Artist
Gosh, I remember when you first uploaded the old piece! I loved it.
Beautiful re-draw.
Parororo Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
then thanks a lot for staying here after all this time : D thanks!
Pichonn Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
Debiste hacerla en la misma pose pa que fuera más comparativo aun poh! pero se cacha a leguas la improvementación : ) -nuevo verbo, gracias-.
Yo andaba con ganas de participar y caché que mis dibujos más antiguos de mis dos cuentas con del año pasado 8 D -fail- sería autopatear a mi yo cercana.
Parororo Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yo creo que sí... al cambiarle la pose y la expresión, como que (como algunos dijeron) cambió el ánimo o lo que expresa el dibujo.... como que con eso ya se pierde algo...

Y fffuu-- pero... rayos, sip DA te pide que tengas el otro en tu galería.. pero... y subirlo igual? creo que había una pequeña restricción con las fechas pero era cosa de un par de días no más o_o. ... podrías intentarlo : D sería cool cuánto te autopateas (?)
