I redid the very first GIMP digital painting I posted online.

{ Higher resolution version on DA }

Here's the original that I posted to GimpTalk in 2009.

I distinctly remember using some of Griatch's tutorials for the trees in that one.

I like them both :bigthup :bigthup but of course the new one's detail is way more advanced. It's interesting to compare the techniques.

I love the top one. The colors are very nice and they give the feeling of you against all the hidden creatures.

Colour-rich and moody. This upgrade of the 2009 image renders it one of your best works to date. I commented further in DA. :)

wow, what an improvement. You have come a very long way in a couple years. Your new version is very life-like and so technically superior!

The updated version is real good, so much depth to it and a sense of 3D. Great work.

I liked the first one (top), where the girl is mixed over the scenario and environment seems thicker, denser, with a fog that makes the set somewhat mysterious.
I also liked the second (2009), but she does not seem so mixed evening. Interestingly the tips of branches, with a sinister look.
:bigthup

merrak: wow, i :heart love :heart your trees in the new version! and you've done such a great job giving the forest depth and atmosphere. but your 2009 picture has a great layout with the skewed horizon, that's very much in my taste :).

I wish I could find the 2008 mouse version - there's a huge difference in technique, there. The 2009 version was done with a Bamboo tablet.

@AnMal - Now that I think about it, the 2013 one might've been better with a skewed horizon, too... a tilted camera to suggest tension. But maybe that would make more sense for running away.

Plus, the 2009 version has those two figures hidden in the horizon. I forgot who they were supposed to be. They're not in the story this illustrates.

Thanks for the comments, everyone :mrgreen:
