Ugh! This took me WAY too long to finish. This is actually a sequel pic to "A Day in the Neighborhood" [link]
and fits into the story which is described there. I honestly finished the lineart for this piece MONTHS ago. However, with all the silly little things that have been stressing me out, I just couldn't get the artistic juices flowing long enough to color this thing. However, with a little pressure from my friend
I finally finished it.
One thing I like about this one is that it's a very good example of what my new hair-shading technique looks like. I've been experimenting with it and still in need of feedback on how it's coming out. The background was... well, I just winged it. About a half-hour of messing around, tossing out of various failed attempts, and many uneasy decisions on what was too much and what was too little. In the end, we get this half-assed canvas which I call a forest. Enjoy!
For the story, see the first pic I did.
