I redesigned another character, Shuko. My first ever Protogen
The one on the left is the old version, the one on the right is the updated version.
@IraShotShiko despite how simple gradients are, the gradients look pretty good on the old on! But the more defined details on the remaster make it what it is.
@TipsyTheCat the gradients on the old were a very lazy way of shading- on the plating at least. Honestly, I don't like designs that have gradients all that much for my art.
