Fuchsia - Draw this again by juuhanna Fuchsia - Draw this again by juuhanna
Sometimes I really need to redraw old things. It's a very truthful way of finding out which skills have developed and which still need more work, and shows the direction that one's art has taken.
I remember thinking 'oh this turned out real nice :)' when finishing the first version in 2012... now I'm just looking at it like 'how did I ever even consider that to be a finished painting?'
I focused on getting her skintone right this time, and creating more depth and atmosphere to the new piece. The old one was just so flat it hurts... :lol: Both pieces were painted in Photoshop. 

Newer piece can be seen here: Fucshia II by juuhanna

omg I have the original drawing saved in my computer because I find it really beautiful, now I have the new one because it's equally beautiful X) . And it's a very nice redesign of the piece.

Holy shiats the difference!! :O First that's very noticeable is the face on the left, and then the anatomy of her fingers. The newer version has a lot more improved realism in painterly style compared to the old, and overall the depth is so much better. (Not like the old one is bad MIND YOU!) I'd say back then you thought of it as a finished painting, nothing bad with that because you've left the painterly feeling to it with brush strokes. especially background. :)

Hehe, thanks Pika! :D If I make a repaint of this 4 years from now, I'll probably think of the current version with similar thoughts, lol! :D At least I hope so, always aiming for improvement!

There's indeed much more life in the new version - much more depth and atmosphere. Especially her expression is a vast improvement on the original I think, as it divulges more of her personality than the previous version did. This is truly beautiful :heart:

I'm glad to hear that bit about the expression as I'm really trying to improve on giving the characters some more 'spark of life', as I'd describe it.... :)

Yeah you're right, since we know how hard we work to improve our art we're more hard with ourselves ...
But I think it's not a bad thing !
Good luck with your next works :)
