the picture on the left I drew about 4 years ago, when skullgirls was just a forum and a downloadable beta! They had a thread for fanart that I posted that in proudly and I now want to die of shame that I even showed that to anyone OTL. But yeah, Alex Ahadís artwork has been a huge inspiration to me for a super long time and Iím so glad to see how far both skullgirls and my art have come!
there's hope for us, common mortals.
omg this inspires me SO MUCH, cause im prolly at the level of the left side rn tbh ahah
The new one is marvelous. Thought, I loved the old umbrella better
holy crap, this is a lot of improvement! i'll look at this whenever i feel demotivated, haha four years seems like a short time, but when you think about it, it's not...even so, not many people improve this much!
zomg... only 4 years! that's actually a pretty dramatic change
Hmmmm. . .i don't. . .see. .the. . .difference.
You have certainly found your style in just 4 years. Nice!
I have hope now :'D
o_o Shit just got serious.
I still think that the original was really good. :/
woah! massively different!
You've changed a bit.
honestly, i like the "before" one better, it's anime styled after all.
OMG Amazing improvement!!! It's a wonder what 4 years can do.
dayyyyyyyamn. I wish I had improved as much as you have!
Although I miss the boned umbrella, the improvement is just awesome! Congrats! oO
May I ask what books or what specifically you studied to improve so fast? I'm trying to make leaps this large myself and I have tons of time to dedicate to it but no definite direction
Wow, the faces in the second one are fantastic.
Whats with the flipped cross?
For a period of four years that's some amazing improvement ... is this a result of self-study only (no classes or academic study)?
Yep! It's mostly me going through critiques and tons and tons of practice, I don't have any academic study or classes OTL. Which is why I consider critique so important and valuable ;__;
True indeed, but usually people who self-study work at a slower pace than academic classes which usually have a fast pace and puts lots of pressure on the students pushing them hard to improve, that's why the ability to motivate ones self to study at such fast pace is commendable and impressive indeed ^_^
Wow--awesome improvement! Looks great!
HOW DO YOU EVEN... IMPROVE THIS MUCH IN JUST 4 YEAras OMDG IM GOIUNG TO COMMIT SUDOKU
the second one is much more alive and probably how it should looked like..
Wow! The improvement is amazing Nicely done!
Wow, awesome! <3

MILKY WHBAT ARE WORDS.

Big improvement! I bet you feel fantastic over the change. Keep trying to better yourself. :3
