Before And After Meme: Eva by Iribel Before And After Meme: Eva by Iribel
Meh. I couldn't resist making this. I came across this meme while ago and thought instantly that I'd like to try it with some old photomanipulation of mine. So here is my slightly variated version of "Draw This Again". I chose my artwork called Eva to play with and I must admit it was pretty fun to try to create a similar composition again. Stock images used on both pieces are the same (except for the stars), the latter one just includes a bit more digital painting... :D I like how the new version came out - don't know if I'm going to submit it, though.

Thanks to :iconbampire: for the original template :pointr: [link] :hug:

"...Eva flies away
Dreams the world far away
In this cruel children's game
There's no friend to call her name
Eva sails away
Dreams the world far away
The Good in her will be my sunflower field..."

Nightwish - Eva

Wow the first one is soooo good and you went and made an already beautiful piece better. I wish I had your skills. Amazing.

I absoluetly LOVE your illustration of these lyrics. The first version was already beautiful but the newer one is even more stunning! This song is one of my favorites from their album.

wow!! So much brighter & pretty colours! The hair looks cooler & the sparkles majorly improved too. Plus fluffier-looking clouds :XD:
All-up, excellent! Much improvement over these couple of years :D

Thank you so much! :tighthug: I'm glad you think so! It's funny to think that at the time I made the first version I didn't know how to use brushes or color overlays or anything... :XD:

Wow that's cool! :) I must admit, I like the colors in the old version better than the all-blue. However, the digitally painted hair, and the clouds and the detail in the new version are what I like better.
