I've been wanting to redraw some previous sketches for a while to see what how my skills have improved. Here's the first one of those, some Moai from Rapa Nui (Easter Island).
Here's the same scene drawn in Procreate.
I put the comparison up on social media and one of the things people said was they liked the first version as much or better. I guess that's nice, but that's more of a stylistic critique.
For me, I'm very happy with the second one because I feel like there's a much better grasp of depth and perspective and I've been able to add some painting knowledge to my list of skills. I would also consider it a complete illustration where the picture plane is totally complete whereas the first version was really a rough sketch where I stopped at the limits of my skill.
What do you guys think?
