I wouldn't say that I have something good to share, but it's sort of a relief that it's over now. rd95, you likely remember asking me about painting something realistic. Here's my sixth, and final, attempt:
I had to slightly change the saturation because this camera seems to muddy everything with a bluish tinge. I don't think that I'll be able to improve from that, though. There's very little about posture alone that doesn't irk me.
Sick man, i love it. When I was younger I used to draw and I was very very good, well still am to an extent. I am amazing with a pen or pencil but I always wanted to learn to paint. Painting is super hard for me. It's a completely different ball game. You did an amazing job capturing emotion in this picture. I'm envious.
