Here is the old one: [link]

And the new one: [link]

I did the new one in March so it really hasn't been that long, and my style is still pretty similar so I hope that is okay c:

Concerning the colors: I think it depends on the monitor? When I drew the new one on my old laptop, it had looked fine. But on my new macbook pro, yes, the colors are not as bold as the old one. :/

Not much difference but this one stands on preference if you prefer darker lines the first one if you prefer a softer style the second.

Yeah, the colors aren't bold on my monitor either. The blood looks dried out, and it just gives off a very "gray" feeling? Almost dead I suppose? Which is fitting, but the contrast with the older one is too noticeable. Brighter colors always attract more attention, but the improvement in the new one is still pretty visible. However, the wings need more work. Do some wing studies someday. You'll appreciate doing them when the time comes to draw another winged character.

The older one looks better IMO.
Its more grittier and dark looking, and the thicker darker lines work better.

I like more the old one and it's for the same reason as others, colors :).

You can easily see the improvement of the anatomy in the after. It's interesting how people prefer the before because of the color.

The old one would look cool on a shirt but the new one is more artistic!
You can see the improvement in anatomy and how you've gotten more confident with your style! I love the new one, its beaaaauuutiful.

The one thing I like about the old one is just the vibrancy of the color, especially that deep, crimson red, it gives a great contrast to the skin where in the new is a little more muted.

There is defiantly improvement in the drawing itself, but I do prefer the deeper and darker colors it gives a bit more of a contrast. It's just a personal preference. But your drawing is amazing! [:
They both look wonderful, but I have to say I like the older one just a TAD more, because of the skin colouring. The wings on the newer one look fabulous though <3
