Yeah, no improvement, hah! That's a lie. There's so many little detail changes! Like the hair, lighting, clothing details, proportion of facial (and other) features, color play and such that it all leads to a cleaner, more realistic, and beautiful drawing! Although you may not think there are improvements, from a third eye, there are many!
But your style has matured so much! You have a better understanding of highlights and shadows, and the character expressions you use now seem to personify your characters all the more! Plus, the little details in your work seem to be a lot more emphasized now. You've definitely improved!
Not much improvement? PFFT. You have obviously improved, my dear! Your colour schemes are more balanced, your anatomy is better (not that your anatomy skills show that much in this picture, but I can tell from the time I've stalked watched you) and you have a much better understanding of light and shadows. It's true that both works are good, but the newer one is definitely better!
Just because they're both awesome doesn't mean you didn't improve. The second one has a lot more depth to it. Your use of color is a lot better, and your style of drawing is more subtle and unique now.
Um...I beg to differ. There's a pretty distinct difference between the two pictures in terms of lighting, anatomy, coloring, shadows, and form. We're our own worst critics so you might not see it, but the improvements are definitely there.
I disagree! I see a lot of improvement even after 2 years~ For example, you've learned how to utilize your color palette so as to give off a certain effect in the artwork, and you're even grown in developing the human anatomy of the facial structures too~ There is a lot of improvement and it's good to see how artists grow over the years
