I really like the new art "improvements". But your original style will always ring nostalgic for me. haha It really inspired me for a good chunk of my art life.

I like both the old and new version. They both have charm. Do you take more time nowadays? Or do you do the developed style in the same time?

I get really sentimental seeing your old style, because it was around the time that I rolled into loving your work and into reading para ten, which will always be fond memories.
however, seeing how your style nowadays is still really you, still makes me really happy :>

so do I... Technically it's better, but it became too impersonal. IMHO style is way more important than skill.

This remake made me notice how her legs are reeeeeally long in the last 2009 panel. :D

Your new colors are twice as tasty!

Wow, great improvement, i feel like the original had a stylistic flare, but the new one has more of a sense of color and lighting values! Keep doing what you're doing man

The improvement is huge, your new work is GORGEOUS. I fucking hate it when people are like, oh yeah, different. Old  one was better. dude, just, fuck those guys. I'm pretty sure theyre just trying to mess with people. but seriously, youve gotten a million times better.

Ha ha ha, yeah, but I can't blame them if that's what they like. I know I've changed what i wanted to change so it's fine! I'm glad when people think I've gotten better for sure though, so thank you!!!!

Wahhh, you're so mature. That's cool of you
It just makes me so mad. It's hard to imagine a less useful, more severe critique then what basically amounts to, "go back in time 5 years and dont bother to try to improve yourself"

Ha ha, I agree. I can only move forward as an artist. It's useful to analyze past work but if I've moved on from aesthetic choices then it was probably on purpose!

Now that's what I call a stretch.

I prefer the old one aesthetically for the comic, although I recognize how technically better the new one is.

And while you may interpret that as being useless bashing, :iconashwara: gets an honest thermometer about the audience's feelings. Which might be something to consider. Not to be stuck in the past, but maybe there is something about the old stuff which catches people's eyes, and the feedback gives the opportunity to think about it and even - if desired - to implement some characteristics of the old stuff on the newer.

Now the comment goes for ashwara, since I already tagged the username here: if there is one thing I would change, that is the white outlining, resolving silhouettes either with the traditional black contour or by picking more contrasting colors on edges to avoid flattening - if that is the reason for the outlines. Just my opinion on this recent white-outlining fever all around dA and Tumblr. But if you like that, keep it, of course.

I've been doing the white outlines as an aesthetic choice since like 2011, not because it doesn't read without them but just because I like how it looks.

If you look at the backgrounds in some anime such as Fuujin Monogatari, Kyousogiga, and even occasionally in Nodame Cantabile, you'll notice similar techniques and I find them beautiful, so I wanted to include it in my own work. I didn't realize it was a trend, but I will probably keep doing it ha ha. But i appreciate your feedback!

hey, that's a good rebuttal. you made me think twice about the situation.
only thing I can add is that your comment is much more helpful and descriptive than most I've seen in this situations, if everyone were as thorough as you I don't think I've have a problem with it. Usually the admission of the artist's technical improve is conspicuously lacking.
but thanks for taking the time to reply

Now it's MY turn to call you mature. I'm really glad with your answer!
And yeah, I see the nuance between the critiques, not everyone will give thorough thinking before just stating a superficial, quick opinion. Well, an artist's job is also to learn and filter this kind of thing. :P

It's really impressive what a few years can do. Emotionally, your newer ones grab me. It's really amazing what a simple change in angle of the head can affect (the second set of panels, just WOW).

Both originals and redraws are interesting.  The older ones have bold, thick strokes with motion, neutral colors, and strong contrast.  The newer pictures show greater depth, more vibrant colors, and nuance in detail.  It's hard to compare the two, since they appear as two different styles.  Unfortunately, I also prefer the older style.  I like the bold strokes and movement within the older style more.
