Draw This Again - Jellyverse by Riemea Draw This Again - Jellyverse by Riemea
My entry for the contest.
I know that some might not see an artistic development or improvement, but I do, because I actually redid this painting twice, and I know exactly what I did wrong the first time and better in the new version. It's not perfect of course, and I'm still not fully satisfied with it. But it's not as messy, it's more detailed and so on... I still like the old one though, I love the colours and I don't know, it has it's own charm.

Well, enough of what I think, what interests me is how you think about it. So, which version do you like
better and why?
Oh, and sorry that I didn't get the whole pictures onto the template, they just didn't want to fit^^

Old version (9/15/2011): riemea.deviantart.com/art/The-…
New version (9/24/2012): riemea.deviantart.com/art/The-…

Template: bampire.deviantart.com/art/Mem…

Wow! Such great improvement in only a year's time! I really love the idea of seeing the universe which is so big inside something that could be so small. The colors you used also complement very well! I like both of them but probably the newer one a little more. I like how on the first one the lines outlining the jellyfish are messier, it adds to its style. The second one has a much better quality to it with the neater lines and more detailed universe. Overall this is just amazing work! All the little details you put into both works is what i think makes them shine.

Great improvement! The new one is much softer and more realistic, but still has the beautiful colors that made the original great :)

I really like the new one's cleaner lines around the top but I like how the old one's tentacles (?) look like they're glowing or even electrified. The new one definitely shows a lot of improvement and that galaxy is freaking awesome but it looks a little flat (it's so good it looks like a picture on the jelly fish). Overall they are both super cool but like Sakura-lies said, I could see the second framed on a wall :)

I see what you mean^^ The new one's tentacles are glowing too, but more in the part of the picture that didn't fit on the template, so it doesn't show here. I agree with you there; I tried to make it look less flat (it looked a lot more flat before I finished the picture^^), but I didn't fully succeed...
Thanks a lot! :)

It's so hard to say which I like best. Generally, I do like the looser lines and the rough-around-the-edges concept of the old one. But the universe of the new jelly is so mesmerizing. The new version definitely looks more professional, I can so see it as a poster or framed piece on the wall, every line is very clean and with a purpose. I so agree that they are both lovely, but the newer version looks very intentional. Meaning, like you said, you knew what you were doing the second time around and it certainly shows. ^_^ Great job improving, and good luck in the contest!

You're very welcome. ^-^ I love comparing new and old works, I don't do it often because I go on rants sometimes. So it's comforting that you agree so it's not so horribly boring. :3

I really love that too! It's always nice to see the improvement one makes over the years, where you've come from, how your style has changed and so on :) That's alright, I do that too sometimes^^
