Draw this Again Meme by Hapuriainen Draw this Again Meme by Hapuriainen
Since everyone and their mother was doing it I had to jump the bandwagon too.

The initial plan of choosing a very old piece so everyone would see how ~awesome~ my art has become backfired tremendously when I noticed that I had to draw water. During these five years I've practised drawing water once...



original meme / the "before" picture in its full glory / the "after" picture slightly bigger



Akari Mizunashi from ARIA.

The original is definitely cuter, but the "after" picture looks more professional.

I musy say, the shadowing is better on the 2011 on, but I think I like the one from 2006 better.

Looking at the 2011 version, my reaction is fully defined as follows:

What the actual fuck just happened?

The second picture is ultimately refined compared to the first picture. It seems there's more realism compared to the 2006 version. It's good to look back and compare the two pictures you've drawn and realize what a big improvement you've done, which is something I do with all my drawings dating back to, oh I don't know, around 2003 or '04, and comparing them to my drawings today.

Overall, that's the main reason why I got that "what the fuck" reaction: Because of the large impact your 2011 drawing gave me.

I just read your comment to my meme and then saw this xD You actually did it too! And You really improved when it comes to coloring. I love your shading style like always and I think the water is nicely done....I wish I could draw backgrounds too I always envied people who can x3 Good job!

Hapuriainen Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well everyone else was doing it so...

(actually the background of this is a result of "I'll pick a very old pic so the new one will look better in comparison, the Akari one will have to do... --- ... wait what, I have to draw a background!?! Urrrgh!")

Has your school ended already? can't remember when it was when you said that you had two weeks left

Strictly optically speaking, the legs to rest of the body ratio in the new one is truly frightening :XD:
Technique greatly improved, but the face is so blank it scares me.

Uh...I have a feeling my anatomy skillz are closer to the 'before' one... That's it! I'm locking myself in my room for the next month...going to emerge from there only for food and some physical exercise!

Yes but what do you mean by that? Just saying so-and-so is off doesn't help me at all if you don't say what's wrong with it.

Okay, so the feet are both in a line pretty much, But one is IN the boat, One is on the Rim of it.
So it looks kind of weird...
I dunno how to explain it.

(So sorry to leech, if this is leaching) I understand what you mean, it does look like she is standing on the edge of the boat, in a way that isn't possible because of the edge... I didn't notice that before!

Yeah, You don't have to fix it.
And I'm not sure what you mean by Leeching, but if you were, Its not problem.
