3 years... by Xmas1928 3 years... by Xmas1928
Okay... so I thought it was about time I did something like this to record my progress...
The pic in the upper-left corner was drawn 3 years ago on a cheap pen tablet, and the pic in the bottom-right was done on my tablet PC tonight (both in SAI). Thanks to this exercise, I've realized some important differences in my drawing. In the past three years my knowledge of anatomy has vastly improved and my style has matured, however I'm much less willing to invest too much time in a single piece now as opposed to three years ago ( the 1st pic took me about 9hrs while the redo took 1.5hrs).
Kinda worries me...=^=

The first pic looks like you took your time with a proper lineart and colouring and as a newb we all take long with that, as for me i haaaate linearts ;A; They take so long and they should be precise. where as the redo seemed to have taken so short because it was sketchy and depending on how fas of a worker you are, sketching takes very little time.. well for me at least. same goes for the colouring. ^^

Even though, this is still a huge improvement and i really like your current drawing style. <333

Lol, thanks so much!:D And yeah, I totally agree, I find line-art to be the most tedious part of my drawing process :P Plus, I haven't mastered expressive line variation so line-work just serves to flatten my work :iconotlplz:
