RE Play it Again by MediaViolence RE Play it Again by MediaViolence
No, I'm not working on more RE: Play, just redrew an old image for the heck of it :)

First one was done as promo work for the first volume of RE: Play, old version here:


Old version inked with Microns, new version inked with maru-pen, both colored in photoshop~

If you like the old version better, that's cool, but you should probably just unwatch me or whatever if you really want to see more like that because my art isnt going to go back in time. Sorry I'm disappointing lol.

I love both styles, it just shows how you've progressed. Re:play was one of my favorite things to read so im still a fan of the old art but I like the direction your art is headed in. Drawing isn't as fun if you never get better at it. All your artwork is extremely amazing to me though

I do love your old work, because it's how I fell in love with your art in the first place, but I have to say that I have fallen in love with your newly-developed style. It's unique, and it's YOURS. And that's perfect. c:

You've become far more stylized in your art now. It's choppier, and more grunge in appearance, which I think really works for your subject matter. I'm glad to see others continuing to grow in their styles yet retain their overall feel. Your art is still obviously your art. I've been very shocked by my own progress and never realized it'd even happened til i went looking at older stuff again and was like, "wtf? when'd i get so good? and how can I get better??" at least i know there's still room for improvement... backgrounds specifically... but you don't seem to do too many either so I guess I don't feel so bad about it. XD Forever a fan! Keep it up!

Man are you kidding? I LOVE backgrounds! But I just post like pinups, doodles and stuff here so I guess you don't see them much, but in my comics establishing shots are like, one of my fave things to do!

I like both the versions there a point in time that you came from, You came a LONG way, not only from experience, but maturing and growing as an artist, and taking more risks then you did before!
While I like the old version, I also love this version much much more because it shows how far you've come from where you were and you broke the chain of a style you was influenced by and MORPHED into and grew into a style that 100% you!!!
Misses your characters so much ;x; but they will forever live on in Re: Play Universe.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

The old style looks way more detailed and cleaner. I mean as a comic style that doesn't matter because from panel to panel your eyes don't train on the fine details, but when you sit back and really look at it as art, the new stuff looks rushed and rough. Too many sharp lines and inorganic angles. I mean dem shoes...
I feel like the old one was, like Chisie said, "pseudo realistic" but still anime-ish. Those traits compliment well.
The new one feels like its walking a wire between real-ish and a caricature with some features that are anatomically proportionate and some that are exaggerated. It feels like its trying to be on both sides of the uncanny valley. So it ends up being nothing too special. It actually reminds me of Egoraptors current style. If you want to talk about style change, I was there to rate one of his first animations on newgrounds back in the early 2000's.
The old one has more heart and thought put into it.
Just my views.

While I totally welcome your constructive crit on my work, I don't think it's very fair for you to try to judge where my "heart and thought" lie as those are really things no one but me can know. The first one was 100% commissioned work by my publisher, the second something I did for fun, so your intuition about which had my heart is a little misplaced ;)

The old style is most def more detailed, and certainly cleaner, because I used to ink with microns and tech pens and now use natural ink media like dip pens and brushes :) While you see those things as negatives I love them lol so really that's a to each is own thing~ To me the old "clean" lineart has no personality, no line variation and just, no life to it. But really when critiquing "style" it's really hard to say one is objectively "better" or "worse" as one man's crap is another man's gold, ya know? I guess the same can be said for your disdain of my choice to use harsh angles as a stylistic choice and for my current stylization of anatomy. The old one was just as exaggerated and stylized in certain places as the new one, just in different ways.
Sorry you dislike my style now, but I'm cool with that, you can't please everyone :) Thank you for the thought out comment none the less :)

See to me the old clean style looks more thought out and purposeful, which is what I meant by having more heart in it. The clarity and level of detail gives the impression that you know the character very well and wanted to make a good presentation.
Anyway, like you say, to each their own. I just prefer my comics to have a more organic and detailed look. God, it's been years since I read those books. I totally forgot you even had a deviantArt. The only way I found this was via a tumblr reblog ^^;
