Jake Season 1 vs Jake Season 2 by Serge-Stiles Jake Season 1 vs Jake Season 2 by Serge-Stiles
Woot! This was interesting to do.

I no longer have any problem with watching the new animation. It's different, but it's still American Dragon: Jake Long, and I love that show and Jake.

So I figured out what I liked about each...

I actually prefer the new hair by the way it's on his head and with the fact that you can see more green! c8

I prefer the old longer shorts that Jake had in season 1, but the colour of season 2.

I like either shoes...

I actually like the new Jake eyes better. With the white shine an' the way it's more formed of an eye instead of just a slight line...

The shape of Jake's head, I dunno, it always changed a lot and it still does. The new one is taller and thinner, the old one was a boxier shape and flatter... Most of the heads from the first season changed that way.

Hands... I never liked the whole triangle nail thing, but oh well. XD

Jake's not as pale as he used to be...

And what I found out after drawing these and watching episodes until the wee hours of the morning... Season 2 Jake is more fun to draw. And easier. XD!

Up next: Jake Long Season 1 dragon vs. Jake Long Season 2 dragon.
Just gotta colour it.

I dunno if I like the background of this one, I might change it at a later date.

Which Jake Long do you like better?

[Edit] You don't have to keep telling me which one you like better ok It was just a question for you to think to yourself

CowgirlMickey Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
oh deffinetly season 1
Nathantheairbender Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2015
I like season 2 story better because it was calmer and better developed it also used less slang( I found that so annoying). I didn't mind the dragon form but I wish they explained how he changed to that like with puberty Dragons with Chinese heritage begin to take on a more traditional form which leads to them eventually having the power of flight without wings like his grandfather. I also didn't understand how he still had super strength with tha skinny body but overall I preferred it

I don't know why people disliked the redesign so much. I personally loved season 2 not just for the animation, but the stories and characters were much better than the first season in my opinion. I also like Jake's new dragon form, it looked more like an eastern style dragon, the original looked more western style.

Season 2 Jake looks less Anti-Asian-racist

I like Season 2's human-Jake more than Season 1's, but I like Season 1's dragon-Jake more than the second season's.
Astro-Wingz Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Same. :XD: But I do like Season 2 Jake dragon in a way
IAmTheUnison Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Personally, I'm more a fan of the first season's appearance than the second season. The appearance of the second season seemed a little too pseudo-anime to me. The stories were still good and fun, but I think the first season looked better aesthetically.

Do you know what? You can take a screenshot from some espisode of season 2 to your model and redraw it in season 1 style. You can even do fanart serie named 
Here's how it would have had to draw. I think I'll do one.
IAmTheUnison Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Indeed. That sounds like a cool idea. :)
Ba-sh Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
when you look at them both side by side they really don't look too different
nice job!
honelima Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013
I can just imagine how great the next picture will be! I love this too!
Serge-Stiles Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I already did the next picture... 7 years ago LOL
honelima Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
Yeah...I figured it out as soon as I posted my comment, then I scrolled up and I saw the Dragon picture and I'm like, really? I didn't know how to delete my comment, and I didn't feel like correcting myself either at the time.
Serge-Stiles Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, it's okay. I get a lot of people commenting on that 7 year old art like it's brand new. But people would get mad if I deleted them, so I keep them up. Most of them, anyway. And blocking comments would hide all the comments, too, and I don't want to hide the comments I have so far...
IntegrateTheSurface Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013
Great idea to compare the two like you did. To be honest, they both look similar, so I was not upset over the change in style.
ooMormunaoo Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013
season 1 has better style.

Jake Long Season 1 Wins
he looks so much better than season 2
DreamLandWarrior Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I liked Season 1's design...
Mattokenzi Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I prefered Season 1 (mostly because I liked Season 1's dragon up) but in retrospect as people we grow up (and Cartoons never do that... Bart Simpson in an example has been what 10 years old for like 20 some odd seasons and still 10 in.)

I wish some characters grow up as we do, we start of naive of the world but we grow from experiance and grow older all cartoons don't do that.
