I've only been on DA for about a year, so finding something that I'd uploaded way back when that I wanted to redraw wasn't as easy as I'd anticipated. Anyway, I'm glad I redid this one.
I'm actually pretty happy to see how much I've improved over a year. I've gotten a lot closer to two of my current big goals: drawing backgrounds and drawing wings (that sort of look like wings). As you can see in the old one, gradients used to serve as my background. I'm slowly but surely working away from that. I've also been practicing drawing wings, and it's paid off (although I still think I have quite a ways to go).
Sorry for the rant!
