Hah, I'm a last minute contester... Original: [link]Remake: [link]
First of all, my gallery is quite a fresh one - one year old.
So it wasn't much space for me to show off too much, hehe.
What I wished to accomplish anyway?
To show that I became better in composition, choosing perspective and angles, placing my characters and displaying action and dynamism.
I know it's less "pretty" in a way, but I didn't aim for polished art for this scene.
I also wanted to use the same media, same style - I think it is just fair.EDIT
Woah, I've got in the semi-finals - totally surprised! *__*
Especially because I do realize - as I've said - my 2nd pict is less refined and pretty. This makes me EXTRA happy that people still could see my point and that are more in a pict than being shiney and polished. I have to admit, I was even a bit disapointed that many picts I liked didn't make it in there. Too bad. = (
I had interesting conversations with people because of this contest about art, improvement and how people think so many times, using digital tools over traditional is an improvement on its own, or changing style (like from simplified to realistic) is as well. When it is really not. And how very often the "after" images still doesn't show improvement on basic art skills like anatomy, lighting, composition ect.
Anyway, I was happy to talk to these people and share these views, it was really refreshing!
I wanted to do this meme for ages already but I'm glad for this contest to finally kicked me to do so.
