So, in May 2013, a friend of mine (Butterflygoddess16) commissioned me to make him an avatar of his peacock-character.
He asked for a royal pose and gave me free reign for just about everything else.
So, onward to now, 2015, and he's still using that same avatar I made him. He loves it, he won't change it. And that just really made me smile, to know that someone loved what they commissioned that much that they'd been using it for 2 years straight. So, as a surprise gift-bomb, as well as a sort of "improvement meme"-type of thing, I decided to redo the avatar. Make it more regal, work on the color-palette and just see how far I've come since making that first avatar.
And honestly? I think it looks pretty damn good, if I do say so myself.
