Draw this Again Challenge: Lonely Lookout by PirateYouth Draw this Again Challenge: Lonely Lookout by PirateYouth
Here's entry one for the "Draw This Again" contest. Way back in 2005 I started drawing this character called Jarren. A few dreams, experiences, and lots of thinking later, Jarren and his fellow compadres turned into main characters in a story I am still, to this day, working on.

Here's the old work (2005):

And the new work (2012):

The growth is astounding no doubt, however... was there no more recent "old" picture to compare with? We clearly see an astounding development of technique and skill over those seven years but the contrast is so great that comparing them gets strange.

That's why I created two pieces for this contest, one remaking a work from 2005, the other from 2008, I believe. I see what you mean though when you say it "gets strange" in this piece. A lot can happen in seven years, but that's what I find encouraging, and hope that it encourages others as well. I'm still developing and improving as an artist, as I sure I always will be.

Ah, I did not go through all of them, but now I might.

I don't know what premises the contest is based on or the explicit rules, however I imagine it's a bit hard to judge the growth fairly when the difference is so immense, sounds a bit weird but perhaps it makes sense. However I imagine most people don't enter these things to necessarily win. :)

Well, I'm sure that you will too. Good work.

That's why there's a series of judgements. My artwork in question made it through to the top fifty, so it obviously fits the guidelines and objective of the contest. And, no, I'm not out to "win" anything. It was just fun recreating an old piece of mine.
