A piece of digital painting I really struggled to finish.  I took me about a year before I got tho a final version.  It is not that it was particlarily hard to paint, I just had so many other projects going on that this one kinda ended up forgotten in a folder somewhere in my computer a few times before I actually really finished it.  The photo reference I used for the girl's pose and skin can be found here: maemoryan.deviantart.com/ .  She's a very talented friend of mine, so check ut her chanel!

Tablet: Wacom Intuos 5
Time: 15 hours, maybe, since I changed lots of things in the process.  I'm not really sure abot this one.
Sofware: Photoshop

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death."
