Then and Now: Week 3

Hey everyone! So today I have week 3 of my Then and Now 'challenge' for you. I was quite excited for this design just because it was quite cute but I was disappointed by how amazingly simple it was to do, so I've decided that from now on I'm not just going to copy the design, unless I feel it's worth it, I'm instead going to adapt it to be a bit more complex. So for instance these could have ended up with bamboo or something, when I did these I didn't really have time to do much else otherwise I would have. In a way I kind of did change them slightly, as I gave them a nose and slightly better eyes, but I'd hardly call that a complex improvement haha. More after the jump!

I had to take these pictures in the dark because my camera screen wasnt working and I use a light box which relies entirely on flash, so that's why they're not very focused I'm afraid! Though to make you feel better about how focused they are look at this terrible old picture:

So again the first time I did these they were all completed using dotting tools. This time I used the brush from the white nail varnish (Barry M - Matt White) to create the white head, and then I used a dotting tool for the eyes and nose, and then a small brush for the ears, all using Barry M - Matt White and Black and the base colour is Barry M - Spring Green. Hope you like them!

What do you think?
