Hi everybody. I was a little bored and had zero ideas for a new drawing so I decided to redraw one of my old pictures. I chose this one because it featured two characters and because quite frankly, there was plenty of room for improvement. I tried to be a little more true to the show design, but took some liberties with the proportions.
I hope you tell me what you like about it and how much better or worse you think it is, compared to the old one. Here is the link to the old one: Bark

- And now the technical stuff (I like sharing these facts, maybe someone finds them interesting):
I drew this picture with Serif DrawPlus X5. I stopped using Inkscape because it runs a little slow on my PC (I have a Core i5 which should be enough, but that doesn't seem to be the case). It's a shame really because Inkscape it's a great tool. But DrawPlus is great too, specially for the kind of drawings I do (simple lines). It's super fast and easy to use, and it got a great feature that allows you to have lines with variable width (althought it doesn't show much in this particular picture, even when I took and lot of time adjusting it).
DrawPlus isn't free, but there is a starter edition that allows you to do simple stuff. I bought the full version because it was on a sale ($15) and I couldn't resist.
The coloring was done on Gimp.
