I love the brightness and detail of the newer piece, but i also deeply appreciate the humor of the first.
I find myself giggling childishly at "obey the law or we blow up your house."
Quite brilliant on equal parts.

I think it's a fun concept, the idea of a city of tightropes. Everyone always likes sky cities, cities in the clouds, cities in the canyons, etc. And the perspective in the image is nice. The guy's just out for a stroll in the city, except in this city you get to walk on air.

Nice update by the way.

Hehe. I had such an off-the-wall sense of humor back then. Still do I suppose. Just not so blatantly.

Lovely improvement! I feel you should have toned down the newer background though detracts attention from the character (especially as their shading is much more subtle!

But genuinely outstanding work regardless!

You got a point. I've been considering throwing a haze over the middle ground towers.

Thanks!

I think that would bring out the character much more, saying that I think its the environmental detail that really completes the piece anyway!

You're very welcome, keep up the amazing art! :love:

Gorgeous! I love all the details. Certainly a memorable piece. I think this is one of the all-time favorites of mine, that I've ever seen on DA.

It's strange to be getting enough attention to warrant this kinda spam. Take the good with the bad?

Gorgeous! I really love the personality you managed to give the background and environment It feels more urban and steampunky now as opposed to the simple generic futuristic buildings you have in the 'Before' image. Great work and best of luck in the contest!

The painting of the new version's background is more elaborate but for some reason I like your old style of painting better. No doubt about it though, you are talented.

What's interesting is there isn't a single other drawing of mine that quite has that face. It was a fluke. A lot of this was.

Thank you. :)
