Draw this again - Benimaru by DarroldHansen Draw this again - Benimaru by DarroldHansen
My entry for Draw this again challenge

My old (left) and new (right) Benimaru.
I'm a self-taught artist, so I guess it took me a long time to understand digital art..

Actually, I had uploaded the old one to my dA gallery on 2010 (the year when I opened my dA account), but the artwork was originally done on 2007..I'm not sure about my level of improvement, but I hope my skills will be better day after day.. =)

Hmm...I'm just wondering, and please tell me if I'm wrong...but isn't there suppose to be a line down the middle of the stomach/abs? Especially when the person has abs? I thought there was a line that connected all the way down to the bellybutton, or did you purposely do that?

haha..you are totally right..there suppose to be a line down the middle but I purposely did that..I always manipulated the real anatomy in my drawing style to the fact that I am not that good in drawing a correct anatomy..anyway, thank you so much for the question.. =)

I wish you could have used the same pose from the original..

haha..i wish too..but I have to admit it's hard for me to draw the original pose using graphic tablet.. :'(

Oooh I understand that. If you have some sort of digital camera or scanner, you can sketch the pose on paper and then trace it with the tablet after you scan/take a picture of it. It makes it easier, in my opinion. XD
