The old piece was made in 2012, April 6th and I finished the new one in September 30th.
I was almost giving up of doing this 'cause I started drawing this in the last week of the contest and everything went wrong for me: the weather was dark (because of the rain) and I couldn't see rightly, half of my house was without electricity, I accidentally crumpled the paper and had to make another drawing, I spilled water on my drawing, and after all, I got sick! Holy crap, I will never let things to do at the last moment again!
But although it was not that fun to do, I've learned a lot of things about eyes and now I feel more confident to draw them.
