Okay I won't give up on it. The thing is, I have a patience problem. I can work on a piece for two or three days, but then I want to move on. And this is so slow for me right now.
I think I have jumped the gun with this piece, I need to study value and tone, to be better able to represent the 3rd dimension. Hey after all, I am 3dementia, what good is it if I draw flat?
I have been working with what is basically just a toy tablet, a little baby Bamboo, but today I went and bought myself an Intuos4. <---that's me right now. I have also decided to switch to the Gimp completely. I have installed David Revoy's brush kit, and I think they are fantastic. So I am swearing off PS. I have been on the fence for some time now anyway.
Thanks for your kind and encouraging words, they are really inspiring. I am going to study the masters some more, and hopefully come back to finish this little chica.
