My final for the Tori Amos RAINN calendar.
I started out wanting to be completely illustrative with the Tori painting, then decided to go the tried and true route of airbrushing the shite out of it, but basically ran out of time as the date was already extended, so you get the bizarre "wtf?" mixture of both... just in case you're scratching your head on that count.
I scrapped sketch after sketch, not even being really happy with the last, but it's something as opposed to moths in my pocket. Really, the fact that there's anything painted at all above this description is an achievement for me as I have the world's biggest mental blockade when it comes to any sort of deadline, even if it's the longest deadline ever.
When I started this I was doing it for a friend (here's to you, Oz
), as I really knew little of Tori aside from all he had told me up to that point. yeah... enough of a description, methinks.
