Draw this again: Enchanted by Nicola-Alexander Draw this again: Enchanted by Nicola-Alexander
It's been 5 years since I made the original piece and I'm really quite proud of how far I've come since the age of 15 on my silly little laptop with no tablet...Even if I still do have an unhealthy obsession with girls with ridiculously colourful hair. I hope you all enjoy the new version because this was really great fun to do :) I still have a long way to go so wish me luck!

New version: [link]

Double Edit:
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and congratulated me! I won a finalist place!!!!!! Congratulations to all the other winners and as I've heard many of you say; there were many pieces that I would have loved to see win but next time I hope they make it. Taking part was fun enough so I hope people who didn't win a spot this time aren't too upset about and just enjoy getting to know new artists and making the most out of the experience. It's the improvement that counts not the winning after all :]

I know you improved, but I actually liked the darker feel of the old one too!

The newer one has more variations of color on the skin and hair, opposing to the old version. But all in all, they're both very well done!

Personaly I prefer the old one... I like the way the eye almost glows and I just love the picture! now the now one... I feel like the focus of the picture is the butterfly rather then the person... but that may just be me... and its missing that magical feel its like there is a important part of the picture.... missing? The eyes look kind of scared...? I dunno I guess that's just what I prefer ^^ they are both beautiful drawing though! probably some of the best Ive seen!

Love the 2007 version, looks so much more magical than the latest version.
Okay, I do prefer the newer one, :)
That's pretty intense for a 15 year old on a laptop with no tablet. :)
