Well, wouldja' look at that? I turn my back for a second, and a two-week break from art sneaks up on me! At least I got one thing done, and it didn't turn out half bad, either!
I got to try out my new Raphael brushes on this illo, and they make my old generic brushes feel clumsy and unwieldy in comparison. Wheee! I felt pretty guilty for slacking off so hard on this (coulda' been done in two days! Two days!!), so I also made a pseudo-tutorial that demonstrates the process I used. Happy Friday the 13th, everybody!
