Draw This Again 2012 by kozispoon Draw This Again 2012 by kozispoon
Can you believe the oldest thing in my gallery is a catgirl? Figures. Looking back on the original totally brings back a bunch of memories. I thought it looked SO GOOD, haha. Even with the muddy colored underwear I botched up trying to use those gel glitter pens. Anybody remember those from back in the 90's?

I took some artistic liberties since some of the stylistic choices from the original was lame. Like that torn up hat in order to show off her kitty ears underneath because, you'd never know she was catgirl unless I gave her ears! What was up with that? :lol: For those wondering, the year slightly cut off in the original reads '2000'.

Give it a try!

Oh, and don't forget to enter dA's 'Draw This Again' Contest!

A lot of improvement :3. Such improvements are always an inspiration for me (and others ;3)

Kind of prefer the old one, but I have a soft spot for 80's-90's style anime.

Dude, I used gel pens with everything hahaha. I see the difference, it's awesome. :D I should do this meme myself lol. The oldest photoshop painting was in my senior year of highschool xD The very first piece I submitted too.

Your understanding of anatomy and shading has improved substantially. And it ma just be a personal thing but your new style is so much better, not generic ANIMU junk. (BTW AAAaaaah, gel glitter pens *shuddder* I definitely remember those. )

I've been meaning to do one of these forever but it seems so embarrassing to go back and look at old weeaboo art. :ashamed:

Thanks a bunch! and yea I thought so too, but when this contest came out I kept getting notes from deviants saying my 'before' was better. I chalk it up to the intense animu love in the community. That or a compliment on my early work? I dunno.

I say go for it and link me! I'd love to see your humble beginnings side by side with your present bad assery.
