Family Album by EmptyShadow Family Album by EmptyShadow
Album of Kai's family going under way too many plastic surgeries. Just kidding.

I recently drew something in the sketchbook and I wanted to spread them out from the oldest drawings I can find of Kai's parents only on Deviantart. These are obviously not listing all the drawings I have of them, of course. I just picked a few divided by a year or two.

Sketchier ones were picked to match with the quality of my doodle. The first picture is the very first digital art of Kai submitted on Deviantart, I only started posting Veo and Evi around 2006. This is sort of like year to year character progression, except that this is probably only 1/10 or less of the drawings I have of Veo and Evi. Those were not scanned and they are stashed away.

Perhaps in the future I will do a more proper listing and post some of the pictures I never got to put on here. I just did this one because the sketch I drew today felt too little to post. Besides, I have other characters (Rita, Greed, Xeda, Eva, Puppet Kai, Yurii, etc...) that I haven't draw here nor recently, so I couldn't include them in the listing. It's not fair for them.

What do you guys think? Old design better or new design better? I hope that my characters' personalities are beginning to refine a bit more through the images; either more defined or improved.

I am still rather inactive online. I just got a bit more time on my hands so I decided to post something. Still won't be able to respond to much yet. To be blunt, I am not in the mood. I have no energy to do anything else other than surf the internet, draw, and play on my smartphone. I will try to update more, and seriously put some effort into returning to DA. I've already broken this promise so many times. Then again, life happens.

Anyway, it's not much, but enjoy. I need to sleep early.
Drawings ranging from 2005-2013.

This reminds me of those memes where one would go through their art based on how old they were when they did it and they would talk a little about it o3o

Good times.

You have improved so much.

I like both designs because of different reasons. The old design is amusing and exceedingly unique in terms of design and colours but the newer design is much more refined and improved in anatomy-wise but still holds the uniqueness of the pieces. But all in all, it's amazing with the growth and change.

It's interesting to see how much your art style has evolved over the years.

I really understand the lack of motivation and not feeling like working much these days, though I'm still really looking forward to whenever you start posting more art again.

Deviant Art should be something you enjoy, not an obligation. Return when you have the time, and don't if you don't want to. I personally like the most recent ones because they're doodles that really show your development as an artist. Kai's father's age shows in the last one~ And awesomeness.

You've come such a long way! This is awesome!
LiquidViolins Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
I'm not gonna lie, I do miss how Kai looked back then a bit.
But I like this newer Kai with the nose and everything because of the more detail and shows his persona clearer as it is which is a major role in art, I can't say I'd choose one over the other.
Your art is always going to be wonderful.
Keep it up ;)

I really like the 3rd Veo there. Other than that, I really like the other characters' designs.

I like this showcase; it's a percise and well-crafted example of your improvement in art. I do feel kinda bad for you since you don't have so much energy to post anymore, but I'm glad you have time to do other things, too. Keep it up, I have faith in you! :)
