draw stuff again! by NightMargin draw stuff again! by NightMargin
Woohoo! entry for the draw stuff again contest. (kinda last minute but then again that kind of pressure does wonders to my motivation, haha!)



I could go on for pages talking about this whole improvement thing but- as much as it's fun to look at old art and pat yourself on the back for growing artistically, nothing beats watching your characters grow as, well, characters!
Aelita (or her prototype, at least) used to be a pretty quiet/ introspective/borderline bookworm-type character. Where her current personality (and unholy singing voice) came from is anyone's guess!

Let's all take a moment to morn for the millions of eardrums that were once safe.

BONUS: I think it's time to bring this back

I'm going to be honest here: Your first work is good. But, good is about it. 
What you can do now is AMAZING! It's one of the best drawings I've seen on DA. Professional quality. 
I'm going to go check out the rest of your stuff now. Cya.

Holy crap that is a startling difference! Not just in quality but in style! There's so much personality that oozes through the new one.
