I'm done... or moreso... I give up.

I don't know what else I can do to ruin this one!

More than anything it was just fun to paint something... else.

I approached this like I do most all my other stuff, and then got bored with that.

I really admire how Jim cranks out these fabuloso black n' white paintings, so I started to try and do that with this one... then copied the color layer below and set it to hard light and the result is a little grungy which I kinda like, you can see the color layer and the black and white layer and their differences as I started to render quite a bit into the b&w.

Bah! I'm ramblin too much now. Basically this was a lot of fun and I'm excited to start on the next one!

Like Maryn said above, likewise with this one... shoot me your crits!
