Draw this Again : Akira 2007-Now by akirakirai Draw this Again : Akira 2007-Now by akirakirai
edit: btw, the reason her hair looks like a different color is because I remember at the time of the first drawing, I wanted her hair to be bright and soft pink but I didn't know how to manipulate colors and work the color palette at that time, so I made do with what I seemed to already have (even though I really meant for her hair to be pink).

So.. I have been going through an artblock from being swamped with college :( and I thought this meme would help me regain some inspiration again -- I felt like I have not been improving until I filled this out ^^

And while I was painting this meme, I thought, why not enter it lmfao. Doesn't hurt to try.

Well....LOL....... the old one was from 2007. DAT HAIR. :iconohgodwhymemeplz:
This was my old version of my OC Akira.
I remember being so proud of this drawing LOLOLOL.

Hope you guys like it! S-so embarrassing :iconpapcryplz:

You did a great job.  I recently did my own 'then and now' and it's extremely rewarding to see how far you've come.  Just imagine how much better you'll be next time!
