Revised Artbook No.2 Illustration by sambees Revised Artbook No.2 Illustration by sambees
So a few years back I did a picture with tutorial for #StudioXIII 's Kemonomimi Artbook and submitted the original version to DA. I was putting together my portfolio a few months back for a job interview and was really torn on including it since there where parts I liked and parts I didn't. The longer I looked at it the more I didn't. I went back into the old file and re-painted a bunch of it and now I am much happier with it. I havn't had a chance really to upload anything with how crazy it's been for a while so I hope you like it :heart: I'll try to upload some older stuff I havn't gotten a chance to post soon!

Old Version:

What a strange little creature. I love the pose and expression, very suggestive, in a way, of... I don't know what.

I agree with tuonenkalla, I loved the old one! I think it just had a lot more soul in it than this one. Don't get me wrong, this one is nice, but I think the older one had that inspirational oomph that this one lacks.

I liked the older one more - the textures created a feeling of detail in it and the colors were more rich and deep, overall making the image look more finished than this "washed out" version.
However I'm glad you still think this work of yours is worth remembering and re-painting. Because I like it very much too, actually so much that the print of that older version is still hanging on my wall.

Wonderful. :) Reminds me a little bit of a sort of druidic or shaman-like creature I saw illustrated in an some some old fantasy book. It had the head of an owl and the body of a man.

I like the darker ski tones and pretty textures of the original better, but I like the face in this one. Great job though! Her eyes are beautiful.

I like the features of the fave better in the new version, but I liked the depth of colour in the old version. This one seems more washed out.

The dark skin with the white hair on the old one had a lot of contrast within the figure but I think in this one the figure stands out better from the background. <3

Also I love the new face!

I like both of them. This one has a much warmer and friendly feel. I like the more limited/muted color pallet. At the same time I really like the strong contrast that the other version had. The darker tone of the figure with the bright hair against the dark background was very striking. It would hold me on the image for a long time.

Wow this is great! I love the lighter feel to it but i think i preferred the darker skin with the white hair (i do love me some contrast!)

Ooh! Both are lovely, but there is a certain luminescence to this one and her expression really adds to the whimsical feel of this. It's really mesmerizing, I can't stop looking at it, lovely lovely lovely <33
