Well, I am back from my honeymoon and very pleased to come home and see the final product. Well done!!! I love how you layered over unconventinal colors to make the drawing pop and pick up the lighting so well.
If you don't mind me asking, how long did this piece take you?
I ask this because sometimes I think I am selling myself short because of my rush to get a drawing done. I am always so anxious to see the final product. I am committed to disciplining myself to devote no less than 10 hours to my next project. It's going to be difficult, but I really think I can take my art to the next level. I am on the verge now and my artistic juices are flowing.
Next commission I get I am going to start a progress thread.
