It's Not LIke I'm Letting Down My "Fans" Or Anything...

So it's a picture.
Of Christina Hendricks.

Christina Hendricks





















I don't really have much more to say about it other than that I made so many mistakes and poor decisions in drawing this image that it's amazing that it turned out at all well, so I have to overlook the fact that it didn't come out at all the way I wanted it to. That's hardly new, of course, but I had a very specific idea of how I wanted the picture to look when I started it, to a greater extent than I do with any other picture I work on.
Of course, on the other hand, no one else knows how I wanted it to look, so I guess it doesn't matter
And even more to the point, no one cares how I'd wanted it to look.  It's not like I let anyone down by failing to achieve the look I was going for.
So, in short, I guess...fuck it.

Well you're not disappointing anyone with a picture like that, at least. It's gorgeous. What's wrong with you?

It's fine, it's just not what I was shooting for. Like I said, I had a very specific look in mind, and this isn't it.
Mostly I'm just frustrated. Because I kept screwing some things up, drawing it took a lot longer than it should have. And beyond that, for a while it was shaping up exactly the way I wanted it, but then the inevitable happened.
