This one, (apart from being my first 2012 submission woohoo!) is a part of an excercice/practice/challenge/art trade thingy i had with *rejlan
over the summer. I was slowly working on it since then and this weekend i just sat down with the intention of finally finishing this.
The challenge was to create something without having the main focus on the face. Inspiration is the muro doodle *rejlan
made on my journal and bjork (of course!). I really enjoyed working on this one. It's 100% digital and it just evovled on its own. Probably the reason why it took so long since i didn't have a sketch or first idea. But i certainly learned a lot about my workflow, composition (though i'm not sure how well it works here) and colour and tried many different brushes. And setting my standards higher.
