I kind of prefer the simplicity of the older one, even if the newer one is superior on a technical level.

Before Elephant looks better in that Style, plus the Picture looked more Gloomy.

Even though the 'After' one shows great improvement, I like the one on the left due to the style. They are both amazing, though!~

While the one on the right definitely shows improvement and is very impressive, I like the one on the left due to stylistic preference.

I agree with ~D-A-rt I also prefer the older version, but your new one is incredibly detailed :clap:
The older version has a gloomier, desperate, saddening look.

I like the contrast in size between the bird and elephant and how they're both cooped up in that golden cage.

Really great piece! Impressive! Could you do more technically rendered pieces at that time (2009)? Because the elephant from 2009 seems to be kind of a stylistic choice.
