Hello, you lovely people.
This is Ayanami Rei from the NGE series (that's Neon Genesis Evangelion if for some reason, you aren't familiar).
Some of you who have followed me for a long while will also note that this is re-done from another picture I had drawn a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away
. I have always loved The OP
. She's a great character.
What am I even saying? Of course she's a great character
I know what a lot of people who have me on watch are probably thinking. "Why re-do an older drawing that you have already done like 2 years ago when you could just start fresh and do an entirely different project?" Well, you see- I honestly think that the original is something that should never have been attempted...
Here it is ---------> [link]
<----------- , in all of it's "glory".
Both of the drawings took me more or less the same amount of time, the only differences being obviously skill and now, the equipment that I have and how well I can use said equipment. But that doesn't explain the reason, does it? So, to be truthfully honest, these are the reasons why:
I wanted to compare my skill growth from 2 & 1/2 years ago
Due to the great lack of accuracy and artistical merit that could have been achieved in the original, I decided to actually do a good version, that people could enjoy a lot more
I was very curious as to how quickly I could finish a drawing and still try to maintain high-accuracy/quality in my work
I wished to try a new way of doing my drawings using the equipment I have now in a specific way to shorten the amount of time I spend on them
I am often very critical and openly opinionated regarding my own works, but I think I will condense my urge to splurge a 10,000 word essay exclaiming the individual nuances of my drawing with the follwing statement:
I am very pleased with this drawing.
That is all, much love.
