Kick your own ass entry by Bariarti Kick your own ass entry by Bariarti
My entry to the 'kick you own @ss' contest [link]

old version done in Nov 2005 here [link]

new version done in June 2009 here [link]

this is a group 1 entry

with regards to how i've improved, i'd say it's fairly balanced between drawing and shading, although shading was pretty poor at one time and i had to put extra effort in to get that up to scratch, but all that practice was worth it^^
this pose in particular was pretty tricky since the old one is stiff and strange looking, i needed to come up with a way of making it believable, so i went through quite a few changes to get it right, but hopefully it looks alright

hopefully i did everything right to get into the contest but if not just let me know

:bulletred: Open for commissions! :bulletred:

Whoa you've gotten so much better! The proportion and the creases in the second one are so much better!

Thanks, I think at the time he was just a guy with a sword, but second time round I tried to add a bit more character, glad you like^^
