Mini-event: New Hope (redraw after 4,5 years)



It's been months I've worked with watercolors last time and working on such big size as A5 is... D: but challenge is challenge, so here we go :D
Task was to remake one of the oldest drawings for ARPG group so I picked the very first one: InkTober - No. 17: Jump I still like that old one, even though if was quite quick and heavily stylized piece done for Inktober... I decided to drop the stylization back to my more usual look (I mean mainly background) but keep the rest - lineart, watercolors, figures sticking out of background and updated a bit the color scheme, view/poses.
Which one do you like more? New (3/2021) or OLD (10/2016)?
If you are curious, here is detail:

For now, let's share the best photo I managed to take...

used: black and brown liners, masking tape, graphite pencil, watercolors
references: many photos of freefalling birds and rocks

I like both versions. I like the moon in the older version. However, when it comes to the skill, I don't think there's a comparison. You've REALLY grown!
