    I had a hard time deciding whether I should post this in Camp Artifex’s forums, or to the public forums. I finally decided to post it here because I know there are tons of artsy people outside of the art guild.

    I thought it would be super fun to have a thread where we could post redraws, and share our improvement with eachother! Have you guys ever redrawn  older artwork before? If not I highly recommend. It’s a lot of fun, and as I mentioned already, it’s a really cool way to see how you have changed and improved as an artist!

    I love doing redraws when I feel bad about my art, because then I can see that I have improved, and I am growing as an artist. And I love to see other people’s redraws because seeing their improvement inspires me a ton!

    Tagging some of the artsy peeps I know.

      @h-jones Hahaha, you don’t have to. You were just one of the first people who popped in my head to tag. 😀

      @ashira You should totally join the art guild!! In my opinion, the more the merrier! 😀 Haha, have fun hunting down your old art. Every now and then I skim through an old sketchbook, and it’s such a weird experience.

        @the-fledgling-artist Oh no!! That was me being happy for being tagged, haha xDD I’ve been wondering what to draw and this answered my question. Huzzah! (:

        ALSO. DONE.

        I skimmed through one of my (many) old dA accounts and came across this (click) old character of mine that I apparently used in a roleplay with someone I have no memory of. xDD Anyway, I thought she was cute, so I gave it a go at redrawing. Here (click) is the end result, which I’m pretty proud of!! 😀 The only thing I’m sad about is that I actually didn’t have a black colored pencil… go figure.

        EDIT: Side-by-side comparison (click).

        @h-jones Heather! That’s amazing! *Confetties* I can see a huge jump in skill! Particularly in human proportions, and an understanding of how cloths fold.

        Alright, here is what I came up with. (I made this a few days ago haha.)

        Before…

        After.

        The after picture isn’t perfect. There are tons of things I would have done differently, but I don’t think anyone could argue that I haven’t improved. And for that reason, and because I had so much fun drawing it, I’m super happy with this. 🙂

        @ashira Ooh! That’s so cool! Have you started the book cover yet? Also, what medium are you using?

        @the-fledgling-artist No, I still have to get the right size canvas for this one.  I am using acrylic paint.  Its for @cassie-hartfinh
