.:LEELOO:. 2013 by vashperado .:LEELOO:. 2013 by vashperado
There was a contest some time last year to re-draw old arts,
and I loved the idea, but missed the contest by a long time!
:iconslowpokeplz:
but I wanted to do it anyway, cuz i love to look at progess~
and *Kaname-Nakajima asked me if id ever be interested in drawing Leeloo again from 5th Element! so i thought, why not draw the same picture again!

Original 2006

7 years ago

If you appreciate just one thing about this drawing, please, make it the boots~
Those boots took a million years to draw LOL

Beautiful! I'm a huge Milla Jovovich fan, and she was adorable in this role. The likeness is amazing in your drawing! And of course, those boots are very cool lol

Both versions are great in their own rights, at the time of their completion, with what skills you used.

Of course though, drawing something a 2nd time usually produces a better end result ;)

Great job there sir!

The boots ARE pretty damn fantastic...it was definately not time wasted in doing those ^_^ I'm also quite fond of shine on her pants, and overall the way you re-did her outfit to make it look mmore realistic.

That said, I really miss the anime-style look the original had...it was cute. Still, love the way you remade it. <3 Great job!

mm yes, thats something im a bit frustrated about..
im fascinated with trying to create realism in photoshop
but the more real you get, the more your style dissappears
i hope i can bring some style back into it in the future

Trying to improve or learning new things is never a bad thing, and like I said, this piece turned out really good. ^^ But the thing I like about your artwork is that i can scroll through a list of deviations and instantly pick out which one is yours because you have a wonderful and distinctive style.
I guess what I'm saying is, keep doing what your doing with photoshop because it looks great...just don't lose the 'you' that's in your artwork :)

The boots truly are great, no doubt about it! Although I think this new piece suffers greatly from stiffness compared to the old one. There's something "fluid" which seems lost in translation for me. While the old one is a tad too anime, the new one has several anatomical flaws - like her face. I believe another comment pointed out stuff way more detailed, so I dun feel like repeating.
But with that said, it's always fun to see progress and improvement! Never stop practicing ^_^ <3

Yes, the boots are wonderful. I don't like the rest of it, though. Especially when comparing to the older one. There are so many things you did right on the first go that just don't work the way you drew them this time. Plus, I really like the simplicity of the old one.

I didn't want to specify, but some things really are worth it. The two worst details about this version of the drawing are:
1. The anatomical mistake of drawing her face in a 3/4 view when the upper torso and shoulders are drawn completely from behind.
2. The artistic / composition mistake of drawing the gun in a straight angle. You really didn't need to have her holding it that way and it doesn't look good.

Notice that you did both of these right in the original piece.

There are other things that I like more about the original like the way she sits on her feet ant the arching of her back... And the angle of her shoulders... I even like how you drew her not to look like the actress from the movie but how a comic book character of Leeloo would look like... It's obvious that you tried to create more likeness to the actress this time.

You've obviously progressed a lot in terms of digital coloring... But with other things... Art proves that it's not exactly a straight forward route of progression... And sometimes you produce awesome stuff and then complete failures the next day... The formula to perfect art isn't a simple one.

I hope I wasn't too harsh with my criticism and that you make the best use of what I had to say to further improve yourself as an artist... Because I watch you and comment to your work because you definitely are a good artist.

Very nice as usual, love the style of both actually, but you can see your improvements as well. Great details but not overwhelming, nice flow and coloring too, you can even tell theres some mila in the face. Well done!
