-Draw This Again- [[ REDUX ]] Forte by Deus-Nocte -Draw This Again- [[ REDUX ]] Forte by Deus-Nocte
*

I've always wanted to do this meme, so when DA put this contest out... I was all over it!

Or, I was when I first read about it, anyway. School quickly swept me away, and to be honest... I should probably still be working on art for school, ahah 8D;

Anyway, I wanted to show what I've learned most--lighting, anatomy, dynamism.. among other things. If you've ever perused my gallery to the time I drew the first one, you'll notice a lot of white... in the form of blank background space. I'm proud to say I no longer find white acceptable, lol. With the redraw, I tried to keep the new piece in the spirit of the old one, namely the posing.

Forte has been a long time favorite of my characters (Yeah I know I don't draw her anymore, but she's being saved for the next project ;) ). Those who have watched me for a long, long time know she got a modern redesign a couple years back, but I've always liked this outfit of hers too, so I kept with it in the new piece.

I wrote more about the redraw itself in its actual deviation page. Check it out to see details better!


As for the contest itself, good luck to everyone! I'm hoping for semi-finals, at least... but so many good entries already. :iconlazycryplz:

But, no matter what happens, here's to improvement!
