I noticed after drawing my gift art to Nekonny that it held some similarities to a older drawing I made quite a while back, and I thought this would be a nice opportunity to examine how my style has changed over the last 6 years or so. Twokinds and it's characters have gone through a lot in over a decade, but I feel it's important to look back every now and then at where we came from. It's easy to say that things are better or worse but in the end, my art would not be where it is now without having been built upon by the art that came before it. And of course, this will continue to hold true moving into the future. Who knows what will happen in the next 6 years. What will Twokinds (or possibly future comics of mine) look like in 2020? All I can do it keep drawing. And hopefully, you guys will be here to enjoy the ups and downs with me. :)

To the next six years and beyond!

Yes, you need look no further than the difference in quality in the eyes to see you've grown as an artist. Of course you've improved in other areas. But that's just one thing that stood out in the image comparing the two. The Eyes.

So ... yeah, its always good to look back. It helps you see where you've grown, and also helps you avoid losing focus on the style you enjoy drawing. The two images have very much the same style, but the 2014 version is much higher quality.

It's rather obvious to me that your skill has improved immensely, the pose and color shading are so much more dynamic in the 2014 style. Great work as always.

I've got a conflicted opinion here. The older style seem to have a bit more charm to it, it looks like it's more... I dunno, I can't think of a better word than "Fun. But the newer style is much more artsy and pretty.

I think the best would have been if the old picture was redrawn in the new style, and Nekonny's one in the old style.

I've seen Tom's art change for years and it's amazing to see his different styles now! Makes me think if I had kept drawing I would change as well. Oh well... I'll leave the art to him ;)

This is the kind of thing I really appreciate, whether it be seeing the evolution of a game series, a writer's progression, or actors aging in a movie series. It truly epitomizes "remember where you came from".

And rest assured there are plenty of us out there who are very interested to see how Twokinds evolves in the future.
Nekonny is such a lucky bastard....

Heh, the change that amuses me most is how Nekonny being put there substantially alters their expressions, which makes sense, messing with him as opposed to quiet intimacy.
