After a very short absence indeed.
When will I stop this and get to work? Well, honestly I did do some things which could be considered work, today. And this kind of thing is helping my confidence a bit after the disasterous night I had Thursday. Still, not finished the picture I need to finish.
Believe it or not, I picked this reference because of the hands, which I only did a passable job on, in my opinion. Practice, practice and more practice.
