draw this again meme by MagicalSakura draw this again meme by MagicalSakura
(ノдヽ);; I was to nervous to post this yesterday, the old art is so embarrassing to me for some reason.

This wasn't intentional that they ended up in a similar pose / expression it just happened so I thought I'd put it in the meme~

inb4 "your old one was better" and "you didn't improve much for 2 years" comments.

old: [link] + new: [link]

i really like both of them, and have enjoyed watching your style change over the years.
im not sure if people have made this comment before or not, but i think i have a few ideas why people say they like the old one better or something about a lack of improvement ( which is untrue). if you have heard this or already know it i apologize for wasting your time in advance.

i could go on and on about the various improvements that i can point out from this piece alone; the anatomy, color use, the overall "flow". It looks like a scene that was captured from movement rather than a pose, if that makes sense..

the only feasible thing i can see that would make people say the older one is better is relating to color and the preferences of your watchers, which im assuming are mainly younger girls. the older work has more vibrant colors, more of a shine, more contrast. the newer one seems a bit hazy and dull compared to it. i am not saying the newer one does not have any shine, because it most certainly does, just if you compare it the colors are overall more saturated, which young moe moe people generally prefer. now, i do not think this is a bad thing, it is a stylistic choice. but think that is why people have those opinions.

I think it's more to do with the fact her shirt isn't skin tight anymore. I think they are about the same though~ but maybe they are a bit smaller now?

You improved A LOT. The bodies look more natural rather than forced and awkward. And the biggest.

PRO-CHAN LOOKS LIKE A TEEN INSTEAD OF HAVING THAT BABY FACE.

Seriously! It was cute and all but...she looked so young! OTL

What are you talking about, you've totally improved! Protag's eyes in the old picture are too far down making her forhead look way too big and the placement of the mouth on redhead guy is a little off. The new picture shows improvement on these and more! Including more diversity in face shapes.

You've definitely improved, Sakura, and you can only keep getting better :)

oh, it's not that I didn't think I hadn't improved. It's just the last time I did one these a lot of people were like the old one was better because it was colored and more shiny < A > so because of that I'm braced for the worst? (ノдヽ) that's the reason I was nervous.
