I have to stop relying on heavy contrasts to keep saving my hide and what are otherwise dull compositions/subjects. I realize now they are my comfort zone and my work may become repetitive fast if I keep this up. The whole, dark background, light subject deal. I do have several paintings lying around where I tried to break away from this, but I've found they were difficult to finish. I guess this means I just have to keep practicing! It might also do me good to try and use less saturated colours. Enough about that though! Less ranting, more painting, haha.

Time Taken: 10-ish hours
Tools Used: Corel Painter Essentials 3, Photoshop CS3, Wacom Intuos 2
