That was then, this is now (or TWTTIN for short), is a community project Ive come up with to help deviants see how much progress theyve made through the years.
Basically, you will be able to show the community a comparison between one of your old pieces and a remake or reinterpretation of said piece.
What do you have to do?
First thing is to find your old art. Something at least 2 years old. Choose one that you think could use some revamping. It can be something you have uploaded to deviantART, but if its not, you can upload it to your scraps or the category you think suits it the best.
The next step is to analyze the piece. How would you execute it today? What changes would you make? You can recreate or reinterpret it as you wish, as long as the original concept is kept intact.
Once youre finished, note me with both thumbnails. Ill post a journal featuring all the participants and the two versions of each piece. There will be also a news article as soon as the deadline for the project is reached.
Are there any medium restrictions?
Not at all. Any medium is allowed: if there is a category for it in deviantART, rest assured it can be a part of this.
Who can enter?
Anyone and everyone. There is no restrictions: staff, seniors, beta testers, subscribers and regular members alike are welcome! Just be sure to comment on my journal to make it into my list of participants.
Is there a deadline?
Deadline is May 1st, 2009. The news article and journal will be posted the day after. Project begins as of today.
Feel free to ask me any questions via note.
