Futureal - Revamped

Greetings. It's been almost a year since the last time I gave signs of life on my blog and I must admit it was a dry season so to speak artistically for me. Most of my energy went to my miniature hobby and to entertainment very much needed. Anyway in the last days I had some of my artworks printed in a special way in order for me to put them in my house like paintings... after the first batch and more browsing I took a good look at the latest artwork of the blog, Futureal.

For some time now I had the impression that something was amiss, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Given the occasion I took the time to really inspect the whole artwork and came to the conclusion it was the mouth. It was not feminine enough and it was not positioned in the right place. On top of that the whole artwork seemed awkward and the focal point was not delivered on the viewer. Thus I decided to remedy all these things and went back to the drawing paper and made new lips. With a bit of digital magic and a couple of hours later I was done. The result in my opinion is ages away better than the original effort.

Lastly the easy solution would be to just replace the old artwork with the new one, but as one of the main reasons I created this blog was to make myself better and evolve as an artist I figured it is only fair that I make a new post so people (and me) can see the difference and the progress. I also made three different versions which I decided to fully iclude. Anyway, here's to a reboot for me... :-)
