Draw it Again: Nature of the Beast by KatherineOsika Draw it Again: Nature of the Beast by KatherineOsika
When I first heard about this contest, I got super excited. So many old drawings that I could redo in my new style? How fantastic would that be?! :D

But then I was informed that it had to be stuff from our current gallery. Now, I'm ocd sometimes, and I frequently clean out my gallery of things that make my eyes bleed (whether they're good or not), and I wasn't sure I'd have something to enter.

Then, I stumbled across this. Honestly, I was surprised it was still in my gallery. But, it seemed like a fun thing to redraw, so here it is :)

I had a really rough time with the background, because I was too lazy to draw a nice background. I ended up getting frustrated and rage-quitting photoshop a few times. Today, however, I didn't want to do my homework was inspired to continue working on it. I'm extremely pleased with the results ^_^

I was tempted to draw the Naga in my new design, similar to Nightenscale: [link], but then I decided to keep with the old design. I just made her face extra boney to make her look more terrifying. And by the way, that blood was extremely fun to paint on there ^^;

So anyway, this is my entry for the draw it again contest! I will upload the redraw (uncropped) to deviantart later.

WOW, nice job! it looks great and i see how you have improved! the new one is much more detailed and i like the colors and lighting and the way you drew her. (the one thing i like about the old one though would have to be the pose. i like how her arms bent back a little more giving her this creepy monster-like look.) great job, keep up the good work! ^-^

Yes, as soon as I put them next to each other, I was like "Darn, I wish the pose were the same >.<; "

Thank you very much for the critique, the comments and the encouragement ^-^
