When I came upstairs to paint, I wasn’t really in the mood for working on Astrid ’13 any more so I made several toss-away sketches until something stuck.
Then I was poking around my own artwork on DeviantArt looking for more inspiration when I came across this old one:
I remember really struggling with this one in 2007 when I spent 2 hours on it (deliberately – 2 hours was the limit). Even then, I felt like it wasn’t up to my usual standards.
So tonight I re-attempted it:
Ahh, that went much better. And in less than an hour, too. I’m continually fascinated by my own learning and growth as an artist. I dunno if I’ll come back to this one, and I didn’t take any WIPs along the way, so this is all I got for it. 🙂
