Right, this was supposed to be about art. The drawing came out okay, it took about 4 hours. Actually to be honest it was better than I expected. I think my painting this week has contributed, the last time I tried to paint a human from scratch it was... less good. But it's been a while and I've been pounding out drawings like Bioware pounds out hit game franchises (ok, I'll stop, really) so I think there are a lot of contributing factors. The face was hardest and I haven't really nailed it. I need to practice faces... so portrait painting should be convenient. Of course there is the oil painting aspect to it. But I'll burn that bridge as I come to it.
Another thing is the finishing. I feel like I /almost/ have a good painting. But it lacks some crispness and definition. I lacks a certain... something. This happens to me constantly. I will think about it.
