Drawing and painting and writing. And stuff. Watch me attempt to improve myself, like a slow motion car crash of art.

This one is actually turning out pretty well, I think. I particularly like how those bracelets turned out. (At least for now. We'll see how I feel in the morning.)
If I may be allowed a moment here, this is approaching, a bit, what I wanted when I started working on this. By "this" I mean digital painting. Look at those bracelets, and the hair, and her chest (no, no, really, this is Art). I think what I didn't like about a lot of digital painting was the way nobody seemed willing to stop. Those areas I pointed out are pretty chunky if you look at the larger size. Some artists would go on, smoothing things out, adding detail, but I think that deadens the thing. I want to keep those big, visible brushstrokes, because they give it vitality, and that's what I think is missing in some Photoshop Art. I may go a little further, and fix a few things with the hair, but basically I'm pretty much finished on those parts.
Maybe I'm crazy. There's still lots of room for improvement, of course, and lots of people do great digital art without overworking it. Anyway, back to the grind, after some sleep.
