This is an interesting subject I wanna present since a long time and I think a journal would be better than a picture comparing all drawings since 2010 (that would have been a huge mess, I tried it!).
Over the years, I received comments from different watchers regarding Yetshi's muscle mass, how he gained or lost it, there's always changes and I'm aware of this.
>> Art style changes
So why did I make so many changes over the years?
It's simply because of the changes in my art style: sometimes I wanted something very detailed, sometimes something very cartoonish, sometimes something in the middle... and all those muscle growth sequences didn't help. Since I know more about muscle anatomy, it got easy to see I was wrong in the proportions and that explains why Yetshi looks thinner now. I guess it's gonna be easier to understand with examples, so let's start with old drawings!
Here you can see exactly what I was talking about: it started normally but I think I increased the size of the torso because arms and legs looked a bit too big for it.
Then he was a bit too buff for me, so I made him thinner (you can see he looks more like I draw him right now on this mini-comic) and then, I don't know why but he got big muscles again! x3
I think the first drawing was a way to say "Get ready, I'm gonna get big!". It's easy to see his muscles (and his feet too!) got bigger and bigger over the year.
I was aware he became to big the past year, so this was the big change of 2013: a thinner but even more muscular body (and new clothes as well).
You can see again changes in the proportions there, it's was because of the change of art style.
I wasn't master of my tablet yet and so I often changed the way to draw my characters, something less detailed and easy to draw, but as you can see, Yetshi got bigger again.
The year isn't finished yet, but you can already see I did some more changes the last months. I learned stuff about anatomy and now I think Yetshi's body is looking good, but I can't say it's perfect, because if I did so many modifications in the past, I guess it's gonna continue.
And so it concludes the journal, I hope it was informative and if you want, you can give me your opinion about it. Does Yetshi looks good right now? Should I give him more muscle mass? Take time to think about it, don't tell me you want him bigger just because you like big buff characters. Remember, this Yoshi is a Growshi and can always get bigger when he wants to please you!
