Wow was the first one done ONE YEAR ago ???? ♥ ♥ You improved so quickly and so intensely !! ♥ (Actually both versions are really good but as you may guess, the most recent one is really amazing ♥) Even if your colouring skills were already very good, your colors look so beautiful and smooth now ♥ Which is interesting here is the drastic change of technique, in terms of colouring, but also the way you draw. Your lines appear thiner and smoother than before, which is really pretty to the eye and suit your colouring very well ♥ The character's "watery" hair is very well-done and it was a nice and original idea compared to the older version, it adds another magical touch to your final pic. I really like how you did her eyes in the newer version, it's totally my style ♥ The background is also much more detailed even if it's quite simple on the whole ♥

I do tend to prefer some random things in the old version though, because both are very charming : the movement of water is more attractive to me in the first pic even if the colors look less realistic than the new one, i think the wrapping of water looks very nice in the old version. Her face and body seem more appealing too on the "before" drawing (but it's only because i like quite slim bodies, it's only a matter of taste ♥). It's true the newer version is more voluptuous, but sexy (and as i said before, the colouring (especially the shading) is really better now) ♥

Your technique has really evolved in just one year i'm so impressed. Your work looks much more professional now than before ♥ Very great improvement ♥

thank you for your great feedback
im glad that you like my newer version, the lines and the colours were the part i was hoping will show of a big improvement because i have really tried to work on those aspects
Also i agree with you that the water flow may be better on the old version and that the new version has a more interesting and still simple background.
Im happy with the watery hair because i planned to draw it on the old version too but i just simply failed, so i was happy with myself once i managed to draw it in the new version
I do not understand why people say the older version is slimmer because i have actually drawn it over the old version so the size and proportions should be quite the same. perhaps one draiwng is less stretched
the new one is bigger the old one was smaller
I hope people check the new and old version before they comment because viewing the full image could perhaps change the " slim " to normal XD
Anyhow im glad you like it and you think i have improved, also im glad you like my eye style
If you check my other works you can see i have been practising and playing around with different eye styles and shading/ colouring trying to improve =3

I actually like the current one more, The water looks more like water and her body has more volume to it. I kind of like the way her hair was in the older one, but it's clear you wanted it to be more like water in the second one. Both are pretty good, but the newer one is definitely better ^^

im glad that someone does prefer the newer version XD
i really dont get why everyone likes the hair on the old version because it was terrible badly drawn hair and it was meant to look like fluid in the first one too and i obviously failed drawing it like some lol
Anyways thank you for your feedback i really appreciate it ^^

You have improved a lot with your technique. In Before-picture I like her hair a lot. In After-picture I like her huge pretty eyes, skintone and texrture of water. It's really hard to decide, but I'd still prefer the newer one :clap:

thank you for your feedback
its interesting that you prefer the old versions hair, since it looks nothing like water i believe and even for normal hair its pretty "broken"
but im glad that you like the new one since not all prefer the updated version XD
