The Dark Queen 2003, Mask Collector 2012
The first is one of my first attempts at using watercolor, and they both had the same use of white acrylic to build the body. It was an almost unconscious bouncing off of the original to get to the second, though I do draw the single female in a flowing dress often.
I was at the Comicon the other week when I realized it’d been pretty much ten years between the two.
The Nymph and the Mermaid, Kissing by the Sea
Original one was digital, 2002, and the second was just to see where my style had gone 10 years later, and in watercolor with pencil for lines. No reasons for redoing except for “just because”.
The Butterfly Queen
I was bored this morning and looking through old work to see if I could jog up any ideas on what to work on next (never mind that I have a few paintings I need to finish!), and started to look at ones I’ve redone for various reasons, how they seem to almost be 7-10 year spread between the original and the redo.
This one was redone because I gave the sister the 2002 painting for a gift, and forgot to remove it from my for sale page… so I did a new version of it in 2009. The original one I was purposefully attempting some odd style, and I think that’s the beginning of my squiggly decorative lines that I use often these days.
