I did a redraw! So, the first image is Ax from Animorphs and Invader Zim from the show with the same name and they were fighting. I'm not entirely sure why?? But hey, now this image has a reason as in a roleplay where both of them appear they don't get along lol. The original was done during 2013 so this is a five year difference.
I think I've improved completely! The art is better, the lineart is better (I didn't even do lineart in the old one, I just colored in the sketch lol), the coloring is better... everything is better lol.
I changed the pose for Zim as he is the same height as Ax in the other but Ax is the height of an average human and Zim is the size of a 4th or 5th grade kid lol so I used his spider legs to help boost him up to Ax's height instead. I fixed the anatomy for both of them as I can draw them both a lot better now. The coloring is done with Prismacolor colored pencils and progresso wordless pencils and the outline is done in sharpie. I made the background behind Zim blue and behind Ax red to help them pop out a lot more than the background matching the characters like in the old one.
Also, instead of currently fighting and having wounds, the new one is them ready to fight but not actually fighting as the positions they're in doesn't seem like their currently fighting. Especially where I'm not sure how Ax has a cut when Zim was only using a gun?? Idk lol. A cut on Ax would make more sense in the new art if I drew wounds as he has his metal arms out of his pak lol
Hope you guys enjoy this!
