Improvement Meme by Aurorella Improvement Meme by Aurorella
Lol, it's more like a style-changing meme than actually an improvement meme.

Blank Meme: [link]

I think it's a little bit better now, but mostly it's not really possible to compare because my style changed heavily. Although this is not my best work so far, I guess ;;

It's not completely the same because I sketched it in a restaurant without the old one to compare. So pose and dress is a little bit different. I left out the rose petals because I think they're really cheesy nowadays lol.

The old one: [link]
The new one: [link]

hope you like it =)

They are both pretty :) I remember the older picture too.
I think the hair in the new version is better. It looks more shiny and it has nice movement, if you can say it in that way ^^; Also, the roses on her hair look better too because they are different sizes. I like the expression in the newer picture too, and she looks younger and cuter ^^
I like the backgrounds in both pictures. And I guess I like the older dress more :D Maybe because it's more detailed. But you drew the new dress very well, those wrinkles and everything :)

Thank you for your detailed comment.
I'm really glad to hear that. Because I was quite insecure about the new picture :)

I guess the 'background' is better and the torso anatomy is much better, but the arms ... and the face... the shoulders are horrible. The hands lack the movement and eloquence they had in the former version the dress is also kind of lacking the arms are just there and the face makes me angry it was so cute and then it got all ... "I'ma rip your heart out" and it kinda looks like a 5 year old which makes it kinda creepy...

But don't listen to me. You have all of those other people just praising your ... improvement... Just thought I'd drop a comment.

It's still a very pretty pic if you like that sort of thing.

Thank you for your nice advice =) I'm pretty glad about your opinion. In fact, my style changed more into something doll-like... I don't know why. By comparison I like the face on the left side better too. But maybe it's relevant to say that I had a reference on left picture (hands), while the right is drawn in a restaurant =)

Thanks again ^^

I see. yeah I can understand. I guess I was kinda disappointed cause I'm a fan of your work and I didn't think it was up to par with what you usually do.. I could have said it nicer but I'm glad you didn't get mad at me. :heart: I have a lot more respect for you... in other words I'm impressed with how handled my little outburst.

Well, first thank you for saying that. I'm really flattered. Actually I don't think that this is my best work as well. Still, it's okay. I can understand it. In addition to that, I cannot learn from words like "wow, that looks nice!" so I'm really glad if people say what's the matter.
No worries, I'm not mad at you at all :hug:

:heart: That's a relief. And you are correct. Praise is nice but constructive criticism is great... even if it's not always nice to hear... ^^;
