Draw It Again: AT Hannah by oshRED Draw It Again: AT Hannah by oshRED
This is a redo of my very first art trade with TheObliviousOwl, something special we decided to do for our first anniversary. :] This is his character Hannah, one of the protagonists of his Ascension comic. 

I've been frustrated with school lately, so I decided to take some time off and work on something personal. There are some things I like better about the old one, like the colours of Hannah's skin and hair. It's not perfect, but I hope it's alright. I've got a long way to go, but it's nice to see how I've grown as an artist in one year. 

Many thanks to TheObliviousOwl for his support this year :heart: See his part of the art trade here:

The new one is so much more advanced, but I can't help but like the older version so much more. I love the brush strokes, colors and contrasts there - the new one looks kind of stripped of character in comparison to me because everything blends so well. I wonder if that's the improvement path for every artist? Most of the famous dA illustrators draw that way, smooth and more realistic, and the individual style is often lost on the way. But hey, this is just me and my taste, and the improvement is the improvement; it's not like an artist can't experiment and stylize once they master their art if they want to :D

Haha no worries, I get you. :] Thanks for sharing your input, I always appreciate it when people take the time to do so! 

I personally feel no attachment to that old style, because the reason I painted that way wasn't by choice, I was often copying artists I really liked and I didn't know anything else. ^^; Learning to produce more realistic work means I can do all sorts of styles, not just one. :] I think the improvement is less in what it looks like, but more in that I have a choice in what style to use now; I have the option to paint similarly to that old style if I want to and it would be because I want to, not because I can't do anything else. 

However, I appreciate you paying attention to my work and giving your thoughts, it's always interesting to discuss!

I see! I should've taken a closer look at your gallery earlier. That's great! I still await the day when I'll guide my hand according to the look I want to achieve and not be guided by what turns out, without me having the full control on how I paint. I've started that one-sketch-a-day thing a while ago, so hopefully I'll reach that point eventually.

Ah - one thing I've forgotten to write about the new piece: your tomato! It fits great here :D

Don't worry about it! I'm glad you expressed your opinion, and if you still prefer my older art that's totally fine haha. xD 
Best of luck with your own studies, and I hope you find that freedom. :] 

Thanks so much! :D
