Rivals - Version II
So, on Friday I was really itching to use my markers and color something, so I went looking through my old art to see if there was something I could do. I came across the old drawing from about a year ago, called Rivals (which is a ways back in this very album) and thought it probably wouldn't be a very good idea to use that drawing for experimentation because of how special that drawing is. It was the first time I'd ever drawn Shadow, which is pretty cool. But then I had the thought to try and redraw it. It'd be a cool experience to see how much I've grown as an artist in the last year. So, I spent that evening and all of Saturday working on this, finally finishing it around 10:30 at night.
I am so infinitely proud of this. I really, really loved drawing it and coloring it and it's so especially amazing to compare it to the original. The portions look good, the hands are passable even though I skipped over Shadow's thumb and I've given Star the more matronly form that she deserves. It was a lot of fun trying to put myself back in the characters' places while drawing this. Star is still slightly evil and as such still has her black iron crown, Shadow is trapped in her marionette form, and still undetected as a Sliver of Ruin. *sigh* CBST is awesome y'all. I really hope to color more of my drawings as time goes on, but I'm still learning and experimenting with a lot. In the meantime, I'm so glad I was able do this experiment.
