Evolution of Newt 08 by Bilious Evolution of Newt 08 by Bilious
I suppose it's about time for an updated one of these! I always find it interesting to see how people's art evolves over the years and figured the best way to document my own progress is through one of my oldest characters Newton Filinas. Poor Newt has been subject to my attempts at finding my style since way back in highschool when I had the great idea that I should draw anime-style. I'm very glad I decided to move away from it XD

BUT YES! Behold, the evolution of my style as showcased by my dear guinea pig, Newt.

Funny how some characters come a long way. Love the evolution (both of him and your style) ^^

yay, the first images of him was so mangaish, until you made it by your own style! Looks cool :)

I love the fact that he grew up over the years.

He grew up with me X) Well, there's still a part of the story where he's a kid, but it's more fun once he's an adult and has to battle with adult things like Mafia vs. Politics wars and murder. X) <3
Oh, sweet! I love to see how characters evolve. They're like children growing up.

Anyway, I think it's great how he went from a typical bishie with anime hair to...Not a typical bishie with anime hair.

What sucks is that my dad liked the oldest version of Newt and didn't even recognize it as something I had drawn XDDDD But thanks! I always found these things fascinating too!

Makes me want to draw Newt/Raven again ): <333

I looove how when you scroll down, he becomes more and more deranged looking. Your style is just fantastic, of course <3

The chin! Sex epitomized

I ended up blunting it in his newest incarnation but I haven't done a finished portrait of him in a while to illustrate thus XDDD Thanks, man!
Love all the killer expressions.

Newt usually has a "PLEASE DON'T HIT ME" expression XD
