Draw This Again: Loki of Asgard

My second "Draw This Again Meme". It's always interesting to redraw an old picture and to do this meme.

Well... now I really have to admit that my scanner messed up the colours of the old picture in a good way. On paper it was not blue enough, so this is the only drawing in my gallery that looks better as a scan than on paper. ^^; I adjusted the colours of the original scan for this meme in order that it looks exactly like on paper, so that it becomes easier to compare it with the new drawing (cropped images => zoomed in!):

Now I finally notice that I messed up Loki's face, that the scepter doesn't glow, the colours are all wrong and that the atmosphere is "dead" in the old drawing... :o A combination of marker and colored pencil is pretty helpful to get rid of white spots. The colours of the new drawing look so vivid on paper, because of the marker background layer.

Loki of Asgard (colour pencils): Paper DIN A4 190g/m²; Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils; time: ~18 hours
Loki of Asgard (redraw): Paper DIN A4 190g/m²; Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, Copic Ciao and Sketch marker, Copic Multiliner 0.05 & SP 0.03, uni-ball Signo pigment ink um-153 white; time: ~30 hours

Here is the new drawing:

For the drawing on the left I used colored pencils and for the drawing on the right I used colored pencils, markers, multiliner and a white gel pen. :)

have you done final touch with photoshop ?

Is that a Photoshop filter (I'm using a German version, so sometimes I don't understand it if someone asks me about Photoshop tools or stuff like that)?
With my drawings I do this: Scan it (scanner settings: a bit darker), then I open the jpg in Photoshop (resize, crop, add a watermark), correct the brightness + contrast + colours, so that it looks like the drawing on paper (my scanner always scanns drawings too bright, removes the contrast and also adds a bad blue tint), then I save it (jpg ~80%). That's everything. No filter to smoothen the picture, effects or anything like that.

Both are better than I can do at this point, but they are both very wonderful! I can see definite improvement and (I don't know how you could get better) now that I am watching you I hope to see your art become even more realistic! 

(I feel the pain of the scanner -- most of my pictures look way better in real life. ^^')
