For those new in the game; I have this tradition of remaking the very first drawing I ever submitted to DA back in 2005: Little Felicia.
I do it every June 30th, the day I joined DA, so this is the 2012 version.
This is probably the one that most deviates from all the others so far. I'm always saying I should be trying new stuff, new styles, new way to use colors and shapes, etc. Once in a while I dare to experiment but most of times it never passes the initial stages, getting outside your area of comfort is hard! Like with every experiment I make, I'm still not sure about this one and I don't know if is either because is different from what I usually do or it simply sucks But I'll let you decide.
Even so I kinda liked how this one turned out. I tried a more storybook-like style and of course the colouring is a lot more simple than in previous versions, I could get used to this
That's funny! Not the picture; it's very cute! It's just a little coincidence -- that my first deviation (which I submitted almost a year ago) wasn't titled "Felicia", but "Fleecia" because she was based off a sheep -- but it was still technically "Felicia" like yours. I've yet to draw her again, but maybe I should draw her more often.
Oh and, your improvement is significant here -- congrats with how far you've come!
