Well I've been wanting to redraw one of my old works since like forever and when better than now that dA is holding a contest where you have to do exactly that. ^^

I have decided to redo the second piece I ever uploaded to dA that wasn't a rehash of an old traditional work. At the same time it has been my most faved deviation for quite a while until some newer works caught up so it will always have a special place for me. :)

Instead of a weird mix of several ones I went for just the Minish Cap Zelda this time, whom I still consider to be one of the cutest ones of all the incarnations. Funnily enough Minish Cap is one of the three Zeldas I have never played though. :XD:

Old and new full deviations:

This is a really incredible leap! If I'm being totally honest, I think I prefer the composition of the original, but the new one has so much more detail and life...awesome work!
PS I'm really sorry if I'm kind of spamming your inbox right now...I need to break my habit of coming on here only once ever few weeks lol.

Nice work! I love the flowiness (a word I just made up methinks) of the flag and her dress.

Her hair and crown also look fantastic!! The detail of the individual strands of hair is truly impressive.

My only criticism (and its is so not even close to a deal breaker) is that her lips look kind of funny. I can't decide if it sticks out because it doesn't seem to line up with the jewel in her crown QUITE right (maybe move it SLIGHTLY to the left, but I'm not sure 'cause I don't draw anything ever let alone faces) and therefore seems off center or if I don't care for it because it looks like she only has a bottom lip.

Her eyes are sparkly gorgeous and totally draw your attention to them.

Even the new rotating triforce is a nice touch!

The whole thing just seems more compelling and real. More magical!! It makes me happy!

Thank you so much for the kind words! :hug:

Mhm I totally know what you mean about the mouth. :nod:
However I have tried centering the lips with chibis and it always looks awkward so I decided to keep it a little stylized and less realistic. I also always fail when it comes to drawing upper lips like this, they always look so overdone and porny then (yeah that totally makes sense to me xDDD). ^^

Ein Unterschied wie Tag und Nacht!
Ich kann selbst auch nur Semi-Chibis malen, deshalb gefällt mir das neuere besser, obwohl das ältere wohl eher "Chibi" ist als das neue. xDDD

Details zu malen ist nicht unbedingt meins xD Wenns zu viel wird ist das für mich zu anstrengend und ich verliere schnell die Lust. Aber alles extrem zu vereinfachen ist auch nicht meins, da packe ich dann schon wieder zu viele Details rein xD
Deshalb mag ich Semi-Chibis lieber. Vor allem mit normalem Coloring. Sieht immer gut aus! *.*

Mir fallt's immer leichter Chibis mit ganz kompliziertem Design zu zeichnen weil dann oft Posen- und Anatomiefehler nicht so auffallen. xDDD

Das stimmt.
Dabei ist leider ein bisschen die "Einfachheit" (<- Wort?) der Chibis verloren gegangen...
Nichtsdestotrotz sieht es extrem gut aus!

Ich hab da immer so ein Problem damit, dass meine Chibis nicht simpel aussehen. Ich kann mich einfach nicht zurückhalten, wenn's um's Details hinzufügen geht. xD
Macht einfach zu viel Spaß. ^^
Im Grund sind meine Chibis auch eher Semi-Chibis. :)

Danke. :D

the minimalist style and lush colors of the first pic really make it adorable and easy on the eye. it gives the impression that you were more relaxed and more confident in your work. the second one feels over-detailed, like you were trying too hard to show an improvement.

I absolutely agree with you! WAY too much detail in the second one, personally to me, it cheapens it. Sure the shading and expression is dandy, but over complicating something does NOT make it better.

Are you serious?

Even if you don't like the new style, the improvement is clearly evident! Even if you're not a fan of details its impressive that she can now render them! Look at the triforce flag from her waist! It's amazing in the new one! How she can handle the curve as it's blowing in the wind of whatever and the design still looks right and proportional. And the eyes and hair?! Don't get me started.

moar detail /= moar better. It certainly doesn't establish that she's improved as an artist: merely that she draws in a different style now. The pose is still stiff, the face still inexpressive like that of a doll. I said the older pic was the better of the two because it's at least done in a minimalist style that's ideal for mascot art, which in itself didn't need improvement. Making the character more expressive would have shown improvement.

Now she'll probably feel like I'm picking on her because I had to explain myself further.
