this picture gave me such a headache..when my computer crashed, ..I just about cried. I had completed most except for Kaoru's kimono and obi. I had also planned to relook at the lighting and shading, and the expression..
after much twiddling with my tablet PC function to reduce the interference with the wacom, it still took me one whole night just to paint the kimono. The degree of stutter is ...urgh!!! I spent as much time correcting smudges as I did painting, I dare not touch on the finer points on the face..
I'm not sure how long it'll take me to get things up and running as usual, but with all the other real life issues, I wouldn't hold my breath.
