...continues from last deviation.

One year later, I remade all 30 drawing in black and white for a book for SM publishers.

The best part of it was to draw again the same illos, with a fresher style and a new format. Can u spot the improvements in my style in a year and half?

Do you mind if I ask your technique for drawing and finishing?

In this case was simple HB pencil on paper. Letter size.
Photoshop airbrush for tones

Good point. I forgot.
Probably I traced it with an extrahard pencil (6h?) as a sketch&guideline thing. In PS, when contrasting the 6H and the soft one (HB,2B), the first one disappears. pop.

That's much quicker than my method of drawing in red pen, inking in black then taking out the red in PS

The red/blue/green/black sketch pencil thing is matter of taste, really.
And inking... well, that's slower on paper, but faster for digital paint buckets, if you know what i mean. ;)

Totally...I go back and forth with the ink. I recently did a 150 paged manga all with contrast adjusted pencils. I tried inking first but my quill line was a bit too heavy for a manga look.

Of course with the sketch cards I have to ink...but I just use micron markers.

I think both approaches are valid. Your composition in this version is tighter and more direct...definitely cleaner. But the older version is raw and passionate.

Both give a strong impact...just in different ways.

Do you think this is more from the proficiency that comes from experience or the fact that the idea was already there for you?

It's a crappy answer but:
A little bit of both.
Besides, on the second version the deadlines were tighter so I had simplify forms!!

Well, again, I like both versions. And really like the way you draw clutter.

Si se ve el cambio de estilo de un año a otro :) Hay un refinamiento en tu línea y composición (es bueno ver la evolución y apreciar cómo cambia en tan poco tiempo la visión de cada personas).

Lamento leer que no fue una experiencia agradable :( desafortunadamente el trato con nuestros empleadores no siempre será algo memorable... de la manera positiva me refiero ^^;

La imagen que más me gusto fue la de la parte superior central, donde está viendo la vitrina llena de objetos :) Esa lampara se ve francamente sospechosa :nod: ¿quizá un genio resida allí?

Espero poder ver y adquirir el libro, se ve interesante la historia ^^

I'd say these ones are much better drawn! So you've improved, and at least that is a good experience :) Even though I liked the old versions as well. In the old version, I like the colours very much, so it would look great if you combine the newer drawings with some colour as well. Then it would be inredibly awesome. ^^

Tenía años que no veía las viejas versiones a color. De hecho, a la distancia, sorprende bastante el cambio.

Más seguridad en la linea, poses más niveladas, composiciones más interesantes, más soltura sin perder precisión, Mejor detalle en oposición a mucho detalle.

Fue un buen año.

The big guy with a sabre became more evil and his assistant turned from shy to sly. Stone head on the second pic lost its arrogant facial expression. Less details everywhere. But everything is stronger now.

So may be it's gains and losts at the same time...

I wish you explain it a little more - why this became that and why it's better...

Right!
As we become older, some of us start to loose unnecessary details, indeed.
