    So beavo what disgusting backwards planet are you from where you read from right to left
    i assume everytime i see yours that the left one is the old one and the right one is the new one

    man, its weird, man

    i...was sort of hoping the quality change would make it pretty obvious
    though countless people have told me they like the dragon from 01 better
    i think they just don't know what the fuck makes a drawing good...like construction and composition but it's damn depressing as fuck
    this challenge has depressed me is basically what i'm saying.
    when people tell you you were better back when you think you were awful, it's a huge shot in the face.

    See this is a worrying trend at writers' workshops and finding out that it applies to art is equally disturbing D:

    Anyway just dropping by to say how awesome this challenge thread is. Just got through it and it brings hope to everyone who's trying to improve their artzing abilities; and obviously it's pretty easy on the eyes too...

    Only managed to get started on this an hour ago, I'll post a WIP in a bit but I probably won't finish unless this stays open for another day or so.

    Not really a do-over but this thread inspired me to go back and do a bit of tweaking on the first piece I ever posted in the AC:

    new_captain1.jpg

    I'm going to try to color it up this week.

    Man, did Captain N really wear a belt over his t-shirt and tuck his pants into his sneakers? What a homp.

    Wait what, it looks like you completely redid it.

    Also Captain N was a fashion trailblazer and his wardrobe should never be questioned.

    Yeah, the line art is all new but I started by tracing the old version on my light table and then reworked it from there.

    I colored it up:

    DMAC, I will cry so hard in the best possible way if you draw the Captain N version of Megaman to go along with that.

    I'm just sayin'

    Oh sweet, this is still going! If I have time tonight and it's not closed, maybe I'll do a quick thing.

    (probably not though)


    Mully, that is most excellent. I love the translucency of the new mouse ears <3

    a lot of people have contributed
    the ones that stay open forever usually don't have very many contributers, so they keep them open to get more participation

    ok guys, behold my silly animus from when i was 14, in 2001. i used to be so good about dating all my work haha

    originalohgod.png

    and here's the redrawn one. i realized after i had lined it that i made the same mistake of sword scabbard being on the same size as the sword hand, so just pretend she is ambidextrous, and swapped the sword from her other hand

    Here's mine. The first thing I ever posted at the AC, done in illustrator, and the new one PS with my tablet.

    Annnnnd, this is where I classically lose faith in my abilities and think 'I don't know what the fuck I'm doing!'

    Might try and work on this more, but this is likely the final.....

    grrrrr.

    I wish I had done this, but too many other art projects are killing me. It has been a super fun thread to lurk around though! This is one of those challenges that would be worth making a commonplace thread. high fives all around.
