AtLA: Improvement Meme by Tyshea AtLA: Improvement Meme by Tyshea
___________________

[quick edit]
Wow front page, I'm kind of floored! :O
Thanks everyone who liked this, and sorry for those of you that liked the old one!

I think mainly it's down to stylistic preference, but I just want to address a few issues:
1) "The old one has a more original style"
Sorry, it's much more cartoony and...anime, but that doesn't make it have more or less of my style.
No matter what you draw, or how differently you draw, I don't think an artist ever loses their style or personal flair. Either you just hide it better, or you copy other styles too much.
I honestly don't see how it's less "my style"
My style has just evolved. Sorry if you don't like it though! :lol:

2) "The pose is more natural in the 2009 version"
I agree! That's the point. My character has evolved, and I wanted to show her being more rigid, mechanical, and professional. The old one is slouching too much for my tastes, as Kye is quite the stiff

3) "I like the old costume better"
It's actually the same outfit! XD
The jacket's just hanging off the belt to allow better movement.

Just a few things I wanted to get to my chest, I'm in no way upset at the response, I was kind of expecting the new one to be less popular, honestly haha
I know most of dA likes simpler, anime styles, and that's cool, cause I do too!
But I improve for myself :)

[end edit]

___________________

I've been wanting to update Kye's bio for a while...so this week was kind of dedicated to that

I'm feeling all sorts of sentimental over this one, since Kye and Rilu were my and ~Aibi-Cake's first babies together (dunno if any of you knew that LOL)
Revisiting these two was such a blast! :heart:

But damn, two years? That's a pretty big difference for two years! I can't deny I'm proud of myself :dummy:

The updated picture on the right is from her bio sheet:

Old version of Kye's character sheet can be found here: [link]
*SPAMS WITH LINKS*

Bee updated Rilu too, she's like...50x sexier now, LOL

She's using the same outfit for 3 years??? I hope she at least take a shower, thinking better, she is a EARTHbender . . . Ok, Kiding X3


Well, I like better the new one,
looks more stylish and "teen rebel", something I believe is in the heart of earthbenders,
or something just I like more. The details are "bigger" and better, I almost feel fear staring her (ir her, right?) in a badass pose.

Really great job,
the new one

I do admit, in her story she doesn't change all that much...I should keep that in mind :XD:

thank you so much though! X)
I definitely wanted to bring more attention to the right details, and had to re-proportion her design a little
I'm surprised you noticed :D
