Hi there again :slight_smile:
I was so curious how my favorite artwork of mine would look in my current art style, that I decided to draw it again. Still prefer the original in some ways, but it was a lot of fun how my skills and perception of different things changed in course of those 3 years. And I actually like both of them, just in different ways :wink:


And now the previous, more 2D version from 2016:

This is awesome. both styles are nice. I am also adding this to #featured :smile:

Thank you for featuring and kind words :wink:
Due to nostalgia I still love this old one a lot. Anyway , painting it again was a very interesting experience.

Second one my fav! :slight_smile:
Great work

I definitely like both. The new one feels softer and almost like a children’s book illustration. The original has more “Pop” to it i feel. Like a bit more energy in it’s visual. Both are great though!

@alexsabo thanks. By second you mean the new one or the old one (second in this post)

@ArtAvenue Thank you :slight_smile:
I tried to avoid those ‘in your face’ contrasty contours, though they kind of work well in the first one. Can’t judge now if this would be better with it, but I consider this just another style and like it anyway :slight_smile:

I think they both work well, and even better together !

“more 2D version from 2016” it is more retro feeling :slight_smile:

@MangaTengu thanks a lot. I like this attitude
@alexsabo ok. Some people prefer the older version and I’m trying to understand why it’s so ‘catchy’.

If all the people who like the old version are over 30 yo, then it’s certainly emotional. A kind of nostalgia :stuck_out_tongue: It had quite the effect on me.

Not sure if it’s that much about the age. Hope it depends mainly on personal preferences :slight_smile:

I also prefer the older version, it seems to have more going on. It is an interesting experiment, yet for me the original holds up.
