The unfortunate few of you who have been subject to my complains about my own art, will know that I wanted my digital paintings to be more, well, 'painty.'
Something that's harder for me to do than you might expect, mainly because I keep feeling like I'm not working to my full potential. Even with this one I had to stop myself from working on the eyes too much, they're already almost too real to be 'painty' and when I look at them at the full resolution I keep wanting to 'improve' them.
But I managed to resist (this far at least) and I kinda really like this one. It almost seems to be an incidental companion piece to "The Dark Hours of the Night."
(Though if you say this piece's name out loud you might think I was hinting at another meaning.)Available from Redbubble as a print (or t-shirt and iPhone case) here:[link]
