Thank you everyone for participating!

Greetings! I have returned from my little hiatus and I bring to you a new and interesting art event!

As we all know, artists have to start off somewhere, and no one starts off as a pro either. 

But of course, over time and practice, we improve bit by bit.

Over the years, our styles change, our habits change, our tools change.

 

So let's show off the stripes that we earned as artists in this special art event!

 

We will be remaking an old piece of our own artwork, to show how much we've improved and changed since the time we originally made the first piece!

Thus this being, a "Before & After" art event!

 

(This is NOT a screenloader event)

 

Rules:

- Everyone is a winner! There will be no 1st, 2nd, 3rd place prizes (it would be super difficult to set standards to judge by)

- Has to be your own artwork (both old and new versions)

- You can post WIPs if you'd like (just don't spam please!)

- This isn't a must, but I would recommend that you use artwork from 2+ years ago to remake, the bigger the difference in skill, the better! But you can choose to remake artwork that's less than a year old too!

- Has to be RO related

- It has to be a remake, you can't just post 1 artwork, then make something completely different and unrelated

- There has to be genuine effort and improvement (can't just use a stick figure from 2 years ago, and then drawing a crappy body on paint)

In other words, you can't half-ass this event just for the participation prize. People will be disqualified if deemed necessary by myself, and other artists.

Example:

Spoiler

 

What To Include:

- A copy of your old artwork and a copy of your remake (to compare)

- What tools/programs you used before, and what you used this time

- Your IGN and Server

 

Deadline:

August 9th, 2016 (4 weeks long)

 

Participation Prize:

Secret :v

 

Example:

BEFORE (2013): (used Photoshop only with regular brushes (except for background) used a BAMBOO pen tablet)

akreis_chibi_by_akreis-d6hpw0f.png

AFTER (2016): (used Paint Tool SAI with pencil, paint, airbrush, and watercolor, didn't want to add a background. Also used the same pen tablet from 3 years ago)

SC%20Male_zpsfaj5idm1.png

 

(You don't have to do it in this manner, this is just an example!)

 

There will be a more "non-artist" friendly creative event coming up after this one!

 

**Details, rules, and anything else are subject to change if necessary**

Good luck!

That looks like a lot of fun~~>u<
Question! If the old drawing has a non-trans class in it, can we remake it in trans/third class?  

Can it be still considered a remake?

Hmm.. good question... I'm quite conflicted with answering;

 

I don't like saying no ; A; but I'm afraid that's my answer, it wouldn't really be a remake then (unless you wanna remake the non-trans and then add the trans/third for fun)

 

Seeing it remade into a trans or third class would be pretty cool to see though, But on the brighter side, you just gave me an idea for another (possible) future event with that question xD!

Ahaha~ It's ok, it's just that my old drawings are so old that trans didn't even existed >u<" 
But it's ok, non-trans need some love and appreciation too~<3

 

Ahaha~ Glad I gave you another idea~ ahahah xD

 

Another quick question, do you have a roughly date for the event? (just because I often want to join this kind of thing but I always miss the dates orz)

It'll start in a day or so approximately, just gotta straighten a few things out first; the event itself will last about 4 weeks or so from there (a month)

Good luck everyone~ :ok:

 

Also, just to make things clear, all forms of art are welcome (traditional, paint, etc.), making necessary changes (i.e. part of clothing design altered to make it look prettier), and fixes on mistakes are encouraged, you don't need to make an exact replica!

This is my Before and After Art: 2013 vs 2016. The 2013 is a mix of traditional art and Photoshop while the 2016 is pure traditional art (on a watercolor paper because I ran out of sketch pad  :lol:).

I did change the headgear because the description on my 2013 drawing was 'Wanderer wearing Sakura coronet' yet it's more like a flower crown/hibiscus, so I fixed it in my recent drawing. Plus, I used to draw feathers on a wanderer's neck before while now I use silk ribbons.

Nope, it doesn't have to be completed, as long as we can see and get a good idea of what you were working on before!

Even if its has only been 1 year, I noticed differences mostly in my art style. Still need more practice though XD lolololol

 

Left: 2015 (Didn't know about layers)

Right: 2016 (Layers all day everyday)

 

I used MediBang Paint on Android for both artwork (Love this app)
