Reworked - Julei-Zu by Darbaras Reworked - Julei-Zu by Darbaras
A long while ago I decided to redo an old art trade I made with :iconbluereptile:, because the old one was an ugly piece of crap.
That picture was a perfect example of what happens when you force a style. Sure, it worked much better on the previous one, but that was the picture I came up with the style for.

This one has a much 'healthier' look. Sure, her armour barely resembles the original, but that wasn't the point.

As for the background, well, the picture gave me a lot of trouble as the character looked the best on a plain white background, which is really weird, considering she's supposed to be in the darkness. At first, she had that overused coloured rectangle behind her, but it just looked way too lazy. So, I decided to waste the whole afternoon with experimenting different backgrounds.

This is what I got. Wait ... how do I perspective? :B

Szépen csináltad ezt, de kell mondanom hogy az állkapocsa kicsit viccesen néz ki :P

This is amazing o: Thank you so much for reworking it and got to say the result is incredible! You really caught her appearance right and her kind look too! Awesome job c:

You're welcome! ^^ I really enjoyed screwing around with the armour and its details, though I worried a bit about making her too thin, just like the last time, but those enormous pauldrons seem to even it out.  Thank you! C: 

Fun fact: I've actually drawn her - or pretty much every everybody - left handed, without noticing it, so I had to mirror her before submitting the picture. It's a bit unfortunate, as the whole thing looked waaaay better with her on the left, even though the pictures are literally identical. :shrug:

No problem c:

Yeah, it happens to me too sometimes. Cx And also looks way better then when flipped. It's really weird.

Good thing I'm not alone then ... :D

Really? I thought it only bothered me, since it was a quite significant last minute change.
Well, maybe it's because our brain got used to reading from left to right, and this picture leaves a huge empty space the left?

I could flip it, if you don't mind her ... ambidexterity. ^^

I asked some other artist firends and they also have the same problem. It seems it's really a thing.
Maybe! Also, my teacher told me it is good to flip your imagine so you can find disproportion if there are any. Our brain gets use to the drawing we drew in that way and when flipped it's completely different.

Hehe, nah let it stay, this is perfect c: Thanks again!
