Done!

March 11, 2014

It took me a while, but I finally finished it.

As you may remember, I decided to use a sheet of Art Spectrum Colourfix paper to draw this one. I didn't really like it very much because it's a very rough paper, in my opinion. It really eats up the pastels, and leaves a lot of dust. So I wasn't very excited to continue working on it, and since I got very busy over the holidays with custom portraits, I happily put it aside. However, this year is the year I decided to finish all my unfinished paintings. So I just had to suck it up!
After forcing myself to get back to it, and finish it, I started getting used to the roughness of the paper, and figured out how to handle it. It's still not my favorite, but I must say, it really holds a lot of layers!
