Redraw: James and Lily by IsaiahStephens Redraw: James and Lily by IsaiahStephens
This is insane!

I knew that i had improved, but seeing the two pieces side by side is kind of intense! it really makes me wonder what my work will look like in another 4 years. Or another 10 years for that matter!

It's true what they say! The only way to get better at drawing, is to keep drawing!!!

I think that before version is a lot better... it has character and spirit, lines are not artificially smoothed, you can feel magic in James and Lily's eyes, light&dark places are more natural and mysterious. Sorry but "after" version is really affected and... blank

I like both drawings, but I have to incline towards the 2009 one. In all honesty, they look more realistic in the 2009 drawing than the 2012.
The latter one reminds me more of a cartoonish style of drawing. And they don't look real. I don't have any other way to put it. 
Great work either way.

its not so much an improvement but a different style or way of drawing in my opinion, the first looks more detailed and the second just looks more refined and smooth. both excellent =)

Maybe I'm one of those few that actually prefer the style of the first picture.
I'm not so far clean styled tones, I love it a bit rough, where you see it is clearly pencil :)

The left one is better in the way that it looks more down to earth and not so... perfect. The ones on the right is flawless, which, idk, to me, is wrong. But there was definitely a lot of improvement!

Lots of improvement but i think the original is more accurate on James .. the messier hair and the at least slightly more rectangular glasses :P
