I started this piece about 4 years ago. First as a sketch, then as a drawing, then as painting, and now as digital art. I don't know what it is about this piece but I have never been able to "get it right". This is the most "right" that I feel like I'll get it. However, I also feel like it will be a never ending battle.
And while I keep going back and forth with this piece, never feeling like it's complete, it will always hold a special place in my heart. Not only because I've already put so much time into it, but because it is the piece that gave me all ideas for my comic and in some ways shaped my style of art.
Note: I also still haven't decided if I like it better with or without the border. So it would really help if you gave your input on which one you like better. (If you click on it it gets bigger.... duh?) (Top without border and bottom with border)
