After looking at the original work, I'd have to say this one is SO much better. The colors, the way it's drawn, and the composition, and especially the incorporation of the update. The update adds much more emotional depth, and it's less static than the original. Great piece! <3
Thank you so much! I think I've come a long way in the year or so since the original. I learned a lot, and now instead of fussing over the craft as much I can use my new skills to convey emotion and ideas better. I'm glad it worked out - thank you for the kind words! (Oh! I've just noticed there's another update…oh! OH! OH I'm almost afraid to look!!)
Particularly with the most recent one, oh god! ;_; Still, I have been worrying about her from the moment she started attacking Gamzee… I think that might be why the updates were playing on my mind a little and I drew this.
Seriously, I can't actually remember: the scales are that way in the original Lady Justice drawing too but I can't remember my thought process that far back besides OH MAN HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT TEREZI IS A REFERENCE TO LADY JUSTICE I MUST DRAW FLOWING ROBES IMMEDIATELY
But speaking helps with the healing… or at least is fun to vent a little. As for Gamzee, ugh… I've known he's awful for a long time… and apparently can't be killed… which has resulted in me being tense every time he's made an appearance recently. And even knowing that something dreadful is coming with him didn't properly prepare me-- OH MY GOD THOSE EYES THAT MOUTH LKJDFKSJLFDSGjklgfsdfkldf

How many teeth has he grown? Where did he learn to honk like that? WHY IS HE PUNCHING TEREZI WHEN THEY ARE STANDING ON A TOWER IN THE MIDDLE OF A LAVA LAKE? He... he was good old Gamzee Makara for, just a few seconds... and then... complete pirouette in the opposite direction.
Haha, yeah, Reddit's how I found out about it. I mean, I got some messages from people but the first couple I received didn't have any further information so I had to go to Reddit to work out what they were talking about. And yeah, it was pretty damn funny… it is still so weird to me because I just can't fathom why my work is on the front cover of a magazine in Russia alongside an apparently serious article about the US Justice System. o.o
Also, thank you! I never really meant to redraw it but I guess cause it was playing on my mind this idea popped into my head when I was going to bed and then I had to at least *play* with the idea, y'know
