younger and older Spike by oomizuao younger and older Spike by oomizuao
I actually think these looked way better when they were in my sketchbook. Coloring them digitally just.. nope. Not too fond of how it turned out, IMO.
but I'd like to hear what you guys think :3

What I really like is how you showed the Older Spike's brow to be more tense than when he was younger; seeing Spike's anger

fester and boil for a long time, and becoming more concentrated as he aged.

I guess you see them differently because you're the artist. I know, because that happens to me all the time. People say something of mine looks so great, and I'm thinking, "Are you serious?"

But I totally envy your skills, in a good way. I'm especially impressed with how you use animal cartoons in a way that's not at all cutesy or little-kid-like.

Personally, I don't understand why you shit on yourself so much on your human art. You're a fantastic artist all around from what I've seen (however I can also sort of understand it in the sense that I think that all my art sucks - including the stuff I do by pencil that doesn't get posted since I don't have a scanner - but people tell me it rocks).  It sort of bugged me that you thought so badly of your human artwork a few years ago when it looked so much more realistic than most people's art that I'd seen at the time.

Now I can understand it better and feel a bit worse about criticizing you so much for hating your own art so much since I feel that way myself about my own art. It was just really hard for me to understand how someone could be so good and believe they were so bad, but I've grown up a lot since then and now realize that no matter how good you are, you will never be satisfied with your own art (in most people's cases). 

Anyways, I've always loved your art - especially your comics and your book "Spike". Can't wait for it to get published :)

Sorry if I sound like I'm being a dick, I don't mean to be.
