Draw This Again: Original by Anarkeru Draw This Again: Original by Anarkeru
My current account: :iconfishiebug:

EDIT: guys please no more "the old one is better/I personally like the old one more" comments, I know it's mainly because of the style change and it's just your opinion but it still kinda makes me feel bad and I don't want to disable comments.

NOTE: I could've drawn this in an anime style since I do still draw anime but I felt that a more stylistic style will allow me to show my progression in color and shading. I do plan on entering again with an anime style remake.

I really didn't want to upload this to my old account but apparently I have to since this is the account where the old deviation is.

Yes, move away from the same-face syndrome that anime has. .3.
Wheatley13 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015
The first face looks more loose and free, no offence but try and make the face a little less upturned.
KatrueYumeNikki Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
second one looks way more detailed, realistic, convincing- better. 
you changed your style but still improved in techniques. :clap:
caradecunha2 Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I prefer the newer one. Even if you had done it in a more animeish style or more realistic style I would have still liked it more... It's awesome to see how you improved on the colors and shading.. You also seem more confident in the lines and stuffs :)

I'm gonna have to talk to you about that mouth...

Nothing wrong with anime at all;what makes a picture "better" is improvement. That's why #2 shines through.

Love both of them <3 Amazing work. I love your style. 
eyafarev Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Student General Artist
Honestly, the new one is much much better. ^_^

I preffer the former version, the new one looks more generic and less personal.
ankilon Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Lol the new one is soo much better ^^ 
I dont really understand why so many ppl on DA only hook up on manga styles :#

Hehe theyre bith nice tho :)
carouselclover Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014  Student General Artist
I don't understand why people are still commenting saying they like the old one better after the artist wrote about it in the description. Also, anime or realism aside, the second shows much improvement in color choice, lighting, shading, perspective, anatomy - the list goes on. I know that some people prefer anime style to a more realistic style, but I don't think that's what this meme is about. It's rather an artist's improvement in technique and skill application.

wow.....very cute.
RenaisAngel Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Student General Artist
awsome perspective
baloghtibi Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
in my book, the first one is better, but both are great
Adorkable202 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013
you added so much detail it's amazing
Nieek Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Student General Artist
Great improvement! You got much better at anatomy and lightning and shading and everything! Awesome.
Asyurili Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I absolutely love the right one, you can really see the improvement.
Draumen Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The after one is beautiful. You've developed such a good technique, and the colours and style are amazing. One can really see the improvements, and personally I'm glad you're moving a bit away from the anime style, but that's just my taste.
Rolly-sama Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013  Student Writer
different styles!
LaddFlores Featured By Owner May 2, 2013
Damn, nice work on both.
mingkuriboo Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I like the 'after'. This just means that you improved from anime to a bit of realism. :)
NikChomp Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think they're both great, in their own ways. I mean, they're very different styles, but those styles are done very, very well. they really can't be compared much.
you nailed both styles, in my opinion.

People are saying the first one is better?! It's no doubt good, but the second one had the cuteness of anime and realism too. A great improvement on your style I'd say.
osipingi Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
:) this is great! your anime style slowly becoming realistic!
Alquemie Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
I really like the second one! :) The lines, and especially hair and face improved a lot!
JuneFlower13 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
she grew up!
ChurippuMori Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012
I think so too! It's the like the girl's "maturing" :D
Dayglo14 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I LOVE these type of things! You really made progress over the last two years! Well done!
Omnivorx Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really don't understand how people say the old one is better. The lineart is much messier, and the anatomy, clothing folds, etc. looks hardly proportionate.

I LOVE your new one. :) The soft colours look so beautiful!
Petziey Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Student General Artist
i personally love your newone it is gorgeous, good improved :)
PoisonousTiger Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I love them both but I think the new one has better depth perspective, prettier eyes and hair and feels less stiff.
sbalac Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
the new one is like a trillion times better
pompon-chan Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
*reads the comments*

don't listen to them girl, awesome improvement. Great choice of an old piece too since you showed how you improved in perspective, color, and anatomy. This has nothing to do with style, honestly anime or not proportions are there.
Hoshikama534 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
i really like your improvement! i dont think ppl are right when they say the old is better, just to point out one thing, she has a better figure now ^^
Eye-Wuv-Manga124 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012
Awesome! I like the cuteness of the old one, and the realism and the overall improvement of the second! :3
pinkinflowers Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012
It's awesome I really see the improvment!!!
taho Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Amazing improvement! You fixed the perspective of her figure and the tiles. There's saturation where the light hits her and desaturation in the shadows. During that time frame you also must have learned about accents, you put just the right amount to suggest the hair's shine and the movement in the fabric. Great job!
rimon Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Professional General Artist
oh wow, so much improvement in just a couple of years!! Well done :D
rebornatmidnight Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Student General Artist
you can see the line improvement it sends chills down my spin :D
Soup-Fairy Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
I love it! They're both beautiful, I really love the shoes and hair in the new version.
moonlight-fox Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I could see the improvement! and not just a style change I see artistic growth there! Goodluck and wow really great improvement *_*
lau12365 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
You improved a lot !
karks1992 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
They are both very good but I do prefer the second one it looks more defined and the colours are better, nicely blended and great shading in the right places. I am intrigued to see how you have progressed with anime. Well done, great progression. :D
