Draw This Again by jennyraepip Draw This Again by jennyraepip
For the Draw This Again contest.



The original piece:

The new piece: [link]

Inspired by "Little Lion Man" as sung by Mumford and Sons.

Lyrics:

Weep for yourself, my man,
You'll never be what is in your heart
Weep Little Lion Man,
You're not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself,
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems
That you made in your own head

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really f***ed it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my...

Tremble for yourself, my man,
You know that you have seen this all before
Tremble Little Lion Man,
You'll never settle any of your scores
Your grace is wasted in your face,
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days Biting your own neck

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really f***ed it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

Didn't I, my dear?

See, I like both of these, but there's a distinct improvement. I think what I like most about the first one is the style - very book-illustrative. The new, improved version is far more realistic, and the colouring is more paint-like than pastel.

Great improvement, Jenbot! <3

That's my thoughts on them, really. I like the cartoonyness of the first but I rather realism now. Unfortunately realism doesn't allow for exaggerated expressions.

Thank you ever so much. x

Aaaw... This is an image unique in itself, in my opinion. Both are good; the first one has the emotion and mood striking through the lion's pose and expression, whereas the second is graced with a more foridable art style, with better lighting and realism.

Thank you so much! I have to agree. I was hoping to capture more emotion in the second but I think my trying to make him more realistic. I am glad to know the realism aspect worked, however! Thank you for your comment. It is very useful.
