Okay, so it is currently February, month of the thing-a-day challenge, and I am feeling like redrawing some of the old terrible art I posted early in my DA career.  I am thinking of doing it because DA added sections when looking at deviations that show other art by the artist, and other art related to it (which my art can show up for other peoples stuff).  A lot of times I see things of mine almost a decade old that look horrible by what I can do today.  Since this is now becoming peoples first impressions of me I am really tempted to start removing this really old art.  I don't like the prospect of just removing half of my gallery though, so I want to redraw some of the better ideas I had.  I have a few ways I can go about this.

  1. Scrap the old work, upload a redraw as a new deviation.  This is what people usually do, and is probably more sensible.  Redraws will probably get more exposure than the old works since I have more watchers now than before.
  2. Upload the redraw as an edit to the old work, and notify watchers there is an update.  This kinda feels like being a bit deceitful, but at the same time I can't really see why it would matter too much.  The big difference is this way its a bit easier for me to upload, and it would be updated in other uses favorites (instead of just disappearing), because DA does provide recommendations based on that.  On the other hand, the image that will be in the favorites now is not necessarily the one they favorited.  However for the purpose of images being recommended automatically by DA, it is a better solution, technically.
I guess the thing is would you be offended if I, or any artist really, uploaded a new image in the place of an old one that you favorited years ago?  Something that is a complete rework from scratch and not just a minor edit.  Is it sort of a betrayal of trust, or is it not really a big deal?


How you doing?
