Ten years ago, I began to get interested in creating digital art.  For my first few pieces, I asked :darkanimeeny: if I could digitize some of his works.  One of his pieces had Sailor Mars tied up: Double Distress Mumblings...
I turned that drawing into this:  Sailor Mars Captive by sleepy-comics

It was my first time using GIMP and I had no idea what I was doing!  I didn't have a Wacom tablet.  I didn't know the first thing about digital coloring.  I just wanted to learn a new skill.

I sat down over the weekend and redrew the piece.  Looking at the two side by side, with the new piece I was able to change the perspective, add an interesting background, and improve the composition.  Ten years have gone by, and the decision to start making art is one of the best choice I ever made!


Enjoy!

10 years, how the time flies! I'm coming up on my 5 year anniversary in December and I'd like to think that I did improve or at least tried to improve my quality just a little.

This is actually well done and shows dramatic improvement which isn't surprising considering it's been a decade.

I'm not really into anime girls or chloroforming but this is drawn and shaded excellently and I do like the expression on her face as well as the gag

I think the most important art concept I learned is “composition”. It’s about how you place the characters and setting to tell a story better. That has helped a lot!

True. I suppose it's the little things that we need to learn that most people don't notice that makes things better

It's always great when an artist goes above and beyond with the perspective.

Really glad you noticed the perspective. I experiment with different methods a lot. The background was inspired by some photos of a Japanese shrine.

"Ah my dear, you will sleep again now, we can't have you fighting while we pack you up for shipment after all.  Just be happy to know that your new owner paid a very high price for you, why with that money we will be able to capture Sailor Jupiter next month as well as vacation in Hawaii where the Hula dancers are so beautiful.  Now sleep my dear, it is a very long trip to Scotland after all."

Beautiful re-imaging, I myself cannot wait to see what you come up with in another ten years.

Great work! I love this re-imagining of your earlier piece. The fear in Rei's eyes is great, and love how secure she is. Awesome job!

Yes yes yes a thousand times yes! This gives a lovely sense of how much you've progressed as an artist, and the dramatic POV angle really sells the...well, the drama of this situation! My favourite Sailor Scout looks absolutely gorgeous here, all wide-eyed and tied down as she is. Great stuff, my man!
