Redo by Walter-Ostlie Redo by Walter-Ostlie
This i a redraw of the first piece of art I ever uploaded to DA or anywhere online.  

2008 is when I started learning how to draw because I wanted to illustrate my own ideas.  Its crazy that 6 years has passed since then.

Damn, bud. That's a whole lot of progress. And it's not just technique, but you've progressed conceptually as well. Even though you drew the same scene, his leg-pistons and the circuits on his belly show how mature your creative process has become. Mad props :)

thank you, sir.  really appreciate that.  I think that was the coolest thing about redoing the piece.  I remember doing the original piece and what I was think about, which wasn't really much.  but the redo had so much more thought going into it.

You really have come a long way Walt, I mean, the stuff you're doing on Shiver is fantastic. I wish I could entice you to take my Halloween short this year :)

It took me a little convincing to redraw an old piece, but it turned out to be pretty fun.  It was interesting to notice the different things I think about now when tackling a piece versus 6 years ago when I didn't really think too much about anything when starting a piece.  composition, form, etc etc

Definitely. I also sort of miss being able to just outright draw without worrying about 'mechanics' or 'does this look right' - just doin it for the fun of it. Dont do that as much anymore.

Agreed.  I've done a couple of 'I'm just going to draw and not think'  but then I look at it after I'm done and see all the mistakes.  I do try to just doodle in a notebook when I get a chance...and never look at it again :-)

Wow! That's an incredible amount of progress. And to be at the level you're at having started in 2008? That's pretty amazing.

Thank you.  I guess those years in school doodling when I should have been taking notes must have been a strong foundation for when I finally decided I wanted to draw :-)

Wow! While there's clearly a lot of progress, your 2008 piece still looks like you already WERE able to draw back then :)

I used to doodle in school when I should have been taking notes.  So that must have been a really good foundation for my drawing skills.
