A past colouring re-visited

Every once in awhile it's a neat idea to colour something you've previously done to see how your colouring techniques may have changed.  I was reminded of this the other day (altho' I don't remember who might have mentioned it) and thought I'd go through my images to see what might "call to me".

I've been playing with copics for just over 4 years now and thought I'd pull one from about that time.  One of the first images I bought was "Shelley Mermaid" by Sylvia Zet.  Partly because I'd "vowed" to buy things when I see my name spelled "correctly" lol (you know, those "tourist-y" items like pens, pads, magnets etc).  For some reason, I'm seldom parted with my money heehee.

I bought Shelley Mermaid directly from Sylvia Zet but you can still get this image as a stamp from Whimsy Stamps here.

So here is Shelley Mermaid coloured "now" (June 2018) and the original one on the right from October 2014.  Both coloured with Copics.

I'd like to enter this in the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge 107 "Anything Goes" as the rules say it doesn't have to be a card... yeah, as I don't want to part with this one yet either. 

Thanks for looking!
