Before/After: Avren by Maivry Before/After: Avren by Maivry
Comparing 2006 with 2012.

I've been meaning to redo this picture for a long time. It's been exactly six years since I posted the first. Although the character isn't meaningful to me anymore, the reason I drew it is: to see if I could do a comic.

In 2006, my art improved significantly over all the art of my childhood. It started to look... nice. And I also started having the idea of doing a webcomic.

The before picture was a test to see if I really could make a webcomic, but at the time I was quite disappointed, because, honestly, it's terrible. I couldn't do clothes, "simple" stylization, coloring, decent poses, or backgrounds. Well, as you can see, I've at least made some serious progress on all those points.

Am I ready to start a webcomic now? Well, I hope I will be soon...

Wow... Talk about phenominal improvement here, especially when there's a few things to be impressed about in the older work. (The shading, folds in the clothing, use of colours, etc) These two images show just how much you've dramatically improved, especially with anatomy. Just... WOW. Thank you much for sharing! :D

Thanks a lot! ^_^ I've been meaning to redo this picture for a long time, so I'm really happy to see the contrast at long last, too!

You're very welcome! :aww: I know what you mean; I've been wanting to redo a lot of pieces myself, but at the moment I'm just lacking the motivation and inspiration to do so. XD Maybe one day, who knows.

I know how that goes. I find it difficult to redraw anything... I tried recently, and lost the motivation. ^^ It helps to have a deadline, though. If you can say, "I drew this exactly five years ago..." I found it can be quite motivating. xD

Yeahh that sounds exactly how I'm feeling right now. XD Haha Though the deadline idea is brilliant; I should give it a shot. :)
