Yoko Recolor by taho Yoko Recolor by taho
Glad a number of you are finding these inspiring
This is a 30 min recolor of an old painting. Just applying new techniques I've learned as a game industry artist

It's amazing to me how posts like these reveal people's ignorance. Every single time I see one of these posted up by a professional artist, I inevitably scroll down to find an onslaught of "but I prefer the old one!" comments. People don't know what they like, they don't know what they want. When an artist posts something like this it's because they've grown and their artwork is objectively stronger. If you (the viewer) weren't privy to the context, you might guess that the 'before' image were a cheap knockoff, or fanart; you'd immediately understand that the 'new' version is somehow more 'professional' without being able to explain how or even what you mean by 'professional'.

I don't know where the compulsion to leave such comments stems from. Perhaps the desire to appear mysterious, or hipster. To have tastes that are somehow unique, or reflect a bohemian personality.

Anyway, congratulations on your progress. Don't worry about stupid comments. Thankfully, the general public doesn't know shit.

Thanks for the support. At times, it definitely feels like what you described, and that's too bad. It's my intention to inspire people that you can improve and then I get trolled, ya know? Lol. Oh well, can't control the feedback you'll get but you can control your reaction.

Haha, yeah. I felt sorta bad after leaving that comment. Usually I just scroll right past, but I just lost it. Every serious artist has gone through that at some point. I'm sure they don't mean to troll us. Anyway, take care and don't let anybody get you down.

I personally prefer the style of the old piece, but it's really inspiring to see how much you've grown! <3
