So... yeah. Things got out of hand? Basically, this was meant to be a very simple piece, but then it ended up being a rather epic experiment. I think it looks pretty cool, and I definitely should revisit this approach with the wings. Maybe a series of "angels"? Hmm... Well, you people tell me your opinions.

I quite like it. Despite the flaws that are there, which I can't be bothered to fix because it would seriously double the time I worked on this. I'll just rather take it as a learning experience and move on.

Flaws? Ok, I won't argue but I will say I like this no matter what "flaws" you see.

Haha, thanks. It's the figure. I am not happy with it, particularly the head and such. I was also at the end rethinking the number of arms. So, redoing the figure as a while would seriously at least double the time I used on the piece.

I can't even imagine the time it takes you to do what you do. I don't know how the various software works but I can see you've already put a heck of a lot of work into it. To me that says a lot.

Well, as you get better you get faster. So even if it might disillusion you to somewhat; I spend less than 20 (working) hours per piece. Usually around 10 or less. It depends a little. So it's not that much of a significant amount of time to do my stuff. I don't know how much I spent on this, specifically, because these days I work on multiple pieces at the same time so I can't accurately measure it anymore.

Being fast doesn't cut down the amount of work you put into the piece. It just lets you get it done faster. You still work hard at it. I used to work on multiple pieces at a time but these days I can't concentrate on more than one.

Yeah, might want to revisit that idea later on with slightly better approach. It wouldn't be a first time I re-do an older piece (Hollow Wisdom comes to mind. And Regurgitate).
