Llama Emoji-09 (Drinking Tea) [V1] Good day sir!

There are trend of upres old movie to HD/3D lately so I decided to remake my old illustration too! (:
I choose to remake my ‘Spicy School Story’ (below) that created way back in 2009, and edit it with my current artistic skills and vision.
Spicy School Story by RaindropmemoryLlama Emoji 27 (Awesome) [V2] 

:bulletorange: What I do, roughly:
• Add proper ‘lighting’ layer (well, actually it is more like shadow layer)• Fix bad drawing here and there using Liquify tool.
• Apply color grading layer on everything by using several Adjustments layer - as usual, like, Selective Color, Color Balance, (I also like the film color in Color Lookup option as well)
NEW! Lens blur with with gradient blur - Man, I like this. Still have a lot of rough edge though. MOAR practice needed.

That’s it!

Going back to improve an image made six years ago, that deserves a fave!   :neom:

:?   Still not sure what you mean by spicy, though.

I like both versions; the older shows a bright and cheerful aspect, and this improved version shows a more matured, stronger look.
Looks great, nonetheless! :iconyaygilbirdplz:

Great! The pic has a feeling of depth and space now! Love the atmosphere; it's darker than the original pic but amazingly lively. This picture reminds me of my school days:) I love both your icons and your illustrations.
