edit: Well, I'm calling it "improvement" because I personally feel like I got better at composition, perspective, and colouring
But anyways, i thought i might as well show it, since my second drawing is based off the first one.
Of all the memes I've seen of this, I've always seen the same pose/composition in the before and after, except the rendering is better in the after. However, I feel like improvement doesn't just have to be an improved knowledge of structure; it could also be lighting, composition, posing, etc too. I feel like I understand composition and perspective a lot better now, so that's why the whole pose is different.
Anyways, I'm not saying the other ppl are not right for doing the same composition and posing, I'm just explaining why I didn't do that xD;.
oh, i also got rid of the wings cause I'm no longer in my "DRAW WINGS ON EVERYF*KING THINGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
" faze. 8D;;
