I kicked my own ass by Tetiel I kicked my own ass by Tetiel
Download for full size :heart:

Lol are these even done by the same artist? xD The rules state that the old needs to be on the right and the new on the left, but I hope judges understand that because of the format, I needed to change it from top to bottom :heart:

The anatomy on the new one still needs a lot of work, but it's a huge improvement from the old one. There's more dynamic poses and bolder colours. I used to be afraid of different poses because I thought I couldn't do them well - not only that - I should NEED to do them. This stubbornness limited me greatly. Even on the first piece I barely wanted critique! Now I know without it I'd still be the same place a year later that I was before.

I honestly prefer the older set. Not uniformly, but...
Definitely improved: Chibi Moon, Saturn. I notice that they're the ones with the most zoom-out between versions, incidentally.
Definitely less appealing: Mars, Pluto. The newer coloring tends to make the hair look too... busy? Mars particularly has almost a Byakuren Hijiri look going on. As for Pluto, the cooling of her skin tone and the purple lighting on her green hair make her look a bit sickly.
Special case: Mercury. The newer version is clearly trying to maximize cuteness, and it succeeds, but makes her look less like herself.

Great improvement! Both versions are awesome!

I Can definately see the difference but your still as good as ever! :hug:
Tetiel Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Actually, once I get some free time, I should really do the series again. It's been... three years now since I've done it ^^;
AmaiDollouse Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Student General Artist
That would be great! then you could do a three comparison! :hug:
Tetiel Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Bwahaha, I could xD It would be one gigantic image, though.

the versions i like
Sailor Moon: New - why? she seems mature in the Old; seems more like Queen Serenity than the carefree sailor moon
Sailor Mercury: Old - why? her hair is more consistent with the original mercury; the new one is just too round, rather than giving the feel of ami's hair
Sailor Mars: Old/New - why? i like the Old because it shows mars as rei the person; i like the New because it shows mars as rei the mysterious, and love the fire btw
Sailor Jupiter: Old/New - why? frankly, other than the poses and colors, i saw no difference between the two (meaning both are great work lol)
Sailor Venus: Old/New - similar to sailor moon, venus seems more mature in the Old version,, which is good cuz she is the leader and was rather mature in the manga; whereas the New version shows the carefree and lovable side of minako
Sailor Chibi Moon: New - why? she seems more like the 9-year-old she should be
Sailor Neptune: New - why? she seems fit; in the old her hair seems more like "ice" rather than the ocean
Sailor Uranus: New - why? dynamic poses!!! yes! uranus!! other than that, haruka in the Old looks old(er than pluto *shudder*)
Sailor Pluto: New - why? no offense, but... pluto in the Old seems a bit a BIT A BIT chubby
Sailor Saturn: New - why? shows her as the mysterious senshi... and frankly, the Old saturn doesnt really look as saturn... moreso someone in a costume of her :3

i just had the urge to write this; hope you're not offended by it^^
Tetiel Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, no. I wouldn't be offended :D Actually this is somewhat helpful :) Both entries are now pretty old, but if I ever decide to kick my own ass AGAIN, I will certainly know what makes the character, the character. I think with Ami, I never liked her hair with that little wave at the end, but you're right. Without it, it's not really... her!

Amazing improvement. I love your new style, especially the shiny-ness and you've improved in making them look really alive and gave them more depth, I think the word is (sorry, not really an artist, lol). My favourite are Neptune, Mars and Venus - very pretty ^^
KaylaDark Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2010
Wow you can really see how far you've come as an artist, it's amazing!! Mind you both sets are awesome so either way your work is wonderful :)

KinjiraretaNingyou Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2009
i am, in fact, impressed. i prefer the second set; the coloring is epic, and the characters fit together better.
HeiKurashi Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2009
You did indeed. Great job! I like the colour scheme on the old versions. But the new ones are great too.
Yinky Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2009

xXmariisa23Xx Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
So colourful and magnificent! I'm not sure which is better: the new or old. Both drawing-styles are lovely and the colours are amazing! The new one is an improvement, I should put you on my watchlist! :D Amazing artwork!~

Dodo-Windam Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
absolutely brilliant!! And I thought the originals were superb, hard to level up from, and you certainly KYOA'ed!
KonekoTsukino Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
I love BOTH. They're sooo cute. It just screams "I'm adroable, love me" to me, so I did. Haha.
I hope you won.
Love2B Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
There is a huge difference, but I love both! They look older on the top and like little girls on the bottom. I think I like them looking older, more curvy like women should be ... but I LOVE the poses you put them in on the bottom version! They express and show more personality there. You have improved greatly in the department of expression of the character. Keep it up!
Tetiel Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you :D And I'm glad you like both! My style has indeed become more loli but I don't know... I just like drawing cute things xD But yes, I've become a lot more adventurous with poses. I guess I was scared at first especially because my anatomy was AWFUL, but I find it much easier now ^_^
Zeldaboyz Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
