Draw This Again Magellan by KW-Scott Draw This Again Magellan by KW-Scott
I put this together to enter the Draw This again challenge. I think the improvements and the differences speak for themselves... There's about a years difference between these two drawings. My original drawing can be seen here [link] or by clicking on the thumbnail


Thanks for looking and wish me luck in the contest :dalove:

The first one is adorable, she looks like she's been hitting the catnip! :D She seems much more at ease in the second. The difference in realism is pretty drastic when seen side by side like this. I like the softness of the fur and the vivid colors, especially in her eyes. Great job! :)

Yes the first one She was a lot younger and she was really half wild :D She's calmed down quite a bit now though and I want to draw her again when she's aonther year older :D Thanks so much for your comments I really do appreciate your take on my artwork :D

They both look cool to me, maybe cause they seem to be different cats, but the last one shows a great improvement, the fur and the detail in the eyes color is something I really dig about these last pieces of yours :handshake:

Good luck Kev!

Thank you so very much... they're supposed to be the same cat but I just didn't really capture her that well in the first one I don't think where in the second one it really looks more like her :D

Really nice improvement. Especially the contrast. I wanted to get in this contest so bad, but I didn't have the time. I would have redone my Reagan drawing again because I'm really not happy with the first one.... it looks too plastic. I will redo it one of these days. Good luck in the contest.

Well I had already done my newer piece is the only reason I was able to enter... I'd wanted to see where I stood in my improvements so it's was kinda cool that this contest came along... While I'd like to win something I don't hold out much hope to do so. I think that if you want to redo your Reagan piece you should go ahead and do it! It's always cool to see how you've improved and where you might still need to work on something. :D

Yes it is... I worked really hard to try and get my cat's eyes just right and found that adding more colors was the thing I needed :D

That's indeed quite a difference. Though the first one is nice, the second one is for sure a step upwards. The eyes are very well done, and I love the tufts of hair in his ears. As opposed to the first one where the hairs in his ears all stand in a row.
And if you don't mind I would like to suggest that next time you draw your pretty cat, made the whiskers a bit more divers, I mean not so neat but more loose. Hope you get my meaning, don't know all the right words :stupidme:

Yes I think I know what you mean.. Her whiskers are so many and so straight that it makes it hard to get them all in there but yes they could be a bit more random as most things in nature are. :D
