Rika the Nightmare by Kerikaza Rika the Nightmare by Kerikaza
I was not happy with the old Rika drawing, and since I had some new+older ideas wanted to try out, I decided to redraw the whole thing.

This was finished a week ago but I didn't have enough time to submit it to groups, so I decided to upload it today |||OTL

This image has instantly made me a fan of this character. I've seen and added to favorites two of your older drawings of Rika--including the one that this is a remake of--but I never really thought they were special.
The improvement you've made from the last version of this drawing is just astonishing! I noticed a few things:
* You added a feather ordainment in her hair, I really like that.
* The chains and cuffs fit perfectly; it gives her more of that dark feel.
* Her tattoos are more visible which is a huge plus.
* The lighting is better for the theme/mood I think you were aiming for.
* Just the way you drew her hair this time seems to be better, though I can't place my finger on why exactly.
* Finally, let me point out that I particularly like the new environment (background) she is in. The flowers she was around before was a lot different than the dried cracked ground and blood stains I see now. It's a good change.

All in all, great re-draw!
