I always envisioned this one being a black-and-white drawing, though it was going to be hard ink. I think I've learned I don't like that style so I don't want to try it for this one. I might regret that though, won't I? Now that I'm typing this... still, bird in the hand and all that. I hope I can do this sketch justice since it turned out so well. If anything the sketch itself isn't going anywhere, I suppose. I always get this mindset after making something so good that I'll never make anything better, but of course that's not true. The next good drawing is just around the corner, I just have to let myself find it. Might take a few tries, but it's there. It sneaks up on you unexpectedly, is the problem.
So much for AC commissions. Might try again after finishing this one.
