Now You've Done It
Have I finally driven everyone away with endless fiddling on this same picture? Well, everyone was about six people, but six people I like. Oh well.
I keep coming back to this picture because, at some level, I like it. I like the image I have in my head, anyway, and this is frustratingly close. And of course, I keep looking at it and thinking, just let me fix that, that doesn't look right, needs a tweak there, oh, now that's gone and f**ked it.
So, after spending hours playing with coloring, I went back and tweaked the line art in what seemed like fairly radical ways, only to end up with exactly the same picture. Either this means the picture I started with was fine, or I can't do any better anyway. Of course actually it has changed, just enough to make the old colors partially useless. So, an opportunity to retry some of the color options from scratch. Yay.
