Draw This Again Meme by mmmaoh Draw This Again Meme by mmmaoh
I've been meaning to do this meme for a while now, and since I can't draw anything lately, I decided to finally do it!

--
My drawing I used to redraw is this one

I drew it back in 2006.
At this time, I did not have a tablet (or knew what they were) so it was hand drawn and inked, scanned, and then colored with a mouse on Photoshop. (too bad I don't have the original PSD file anymore :'( But at least I have the original paper lineart lol)
But this drawing was kind of a turning point. You know how you draw that one picture that shows you have some sort of potential to be really good? XD This was the one for me.

Now you can see if I have improved after redrawing it. Honestly, it only took an hour to redraw it. If I spent more time and effort, it may be even better lol

One thing I like more about my old drawing is how I captured the mood in the sketchy lineart. However, the new one is a lot cleaner.

Redraw full version: [link]

This was really fun overall!
Let me know what you think~ ^^;

Seeya~

I think he looks younger in the old picture and like he`s adult in your new one.
So for me they belong together : )

you were able to capture more emotion and energy in the newer one, and didn't need to resort to contour lines to define it as much. thats just what i see ^-^

This was your first piece of artwork I saw. I loved it, and it's been so amazing watching you grow over the years. :heart: I can't wait to see this again in a few years, I'm sure it will look like Picasso.

hahah, I got confused because the before is usually on the left, and I was looking at it, and I was like, what? how did this person not improve, but regress?

and then i read the bottom... OHHHHKAy. I see now.

It's amazing, just so you know. xD

I love both of them! They each show something different. Like the old one has a more faded feel to it (such bad wording, but it's late at night and the best I can do ^^; ) and makes him appear more ghostly. I think its a very expressive piece. But the new one is so clean and crisp. and it I think it shows you as a more confident artist, especially considering you only took an hour to draw it, that's impressive in itself! Between the two, It looks like the character grew up, from a boy to an adult :)

(am I the only one where the redraw link doesn't work :( )

Very nice! I love them both for different reasons. They both have a different, yet similar style, and both deliver the message well. I enjoy the simplicity of the old one (if that is the proper word to use) but I love how the new one is so polished and refined.
You have improved a lot between these two drawings :)
