Even When I Succeed, I Fail

So this picture I did of Scarlett Johansson is pretty good, right?

I mean, I think it is, and we all know I'm not particularly inclined to be charitable towards my own work.
But even though it's a good picture, and in that respect, a success, it's still a failure, as it doesn't look at all the way I wanted it to look when I started working on it yesterday afternoon.
In all, I probably spent about 12 hours working on it, though much of that was in an effort to try to get it to look the way I wanted, though eventually I decided it was a lost cause and that I should devote my time to making it look as good as possible.
And this is the end result. Am I pleased with it? Sure, why not?
But I'm also kind of irritated with it.
Oh well.

Well I like it. She should be illegal.

I like it, too, it's just not what I was visualizing/trying to achieve.
