Draw This Again! by Rynnay Draw This Again! by Rynnay
This was a lot of fun to do! I love revisiting old works, especially when the old ones are so bad I want to run screaming into the night.

Anyway, I've never entered an art contest before. Ever. I never really feel like I can stand up to the competition, so I defeat myself before I even try. But this time it involved looking at your progress as an artist, and that's something I can honestly feel kinda proud of. Because I feel like I've come a long way. So I figured that is the best reason to enter a contest; when you actually feel good about yourself. This made me see that I've really pressed forward all these years, and I still am, and probably always will.

This is actually one of the best entries I've seen these days!
There's a lot of people who submit works that have obviously been done in a rush and don't look good nor show the improvement!
But yours... the picture is sooo enhanced and the feel of it is amazing! Your style is always so beautiful and seeing your improvement inspires me a lot!! Keep the great work up!

I cracked up a little when I "first" found it too. XD

And then I teared up and had a cry.

But you've improved so much! I like how some sections seem lineless but, like, his horns are nicely outlined. And those colors~ :wow:

Haha it's cool. I have an art minor and I still suck at giving good critique.

"YOUR ART. IT GOOD." :heart:

It's so incredible to see how far you've come. There really is nothing to compare--your old work is shockingly different from the new. You've grown so far from scary-anatomy anime into classical high-fantasy with modern twists in digital painting. oAo There's depth and life and terror in the bottom one...
while the top's scariest feature is the way it's drawn, sooo.
Anyways. The bottom is spectacular. I'm particularly fond of the way the clothes are shredding and flying off into the ether. That effect is especially powerful--as is the focus of colors; the glow, and the piercing eyes. There's raw chemistry and dynamics in the bottom one and it's just--a hugely marked improvement. It's brilliant. Breathtaking.
Well done. .^.
