I keep trying to capture my OC on (digital) canvas, much the way that a photographer keeps trying to capture a creature on film. I can "see" her plain as day inside my mind, but to see her with my own eyes...? That has proven very difficult.
I attribute this to the fact that, much like for a photographer to take a GOOD picture, in order to fully and accurately capture her image: I need skill. Granted: ART skill, rather than photography. Yet, skill, nonetheless.
Which is difficult to obtain since I seem obsessed with drawing no-one else save for HER. So I don't get a lot of people practice. Perhaps since I now realize this fact and have managed to produce this ... rather satisfactory portrait, I will be able to convince my brain cells that exploring other faces is now "Safe".
This is even only "close" to the way she should really look, but I grew tired and am having to take a break from my "hunt" in order to sleep.
I'll get back to work tomorrow.
(I'm also proud of this because she's even showing some emotion! That has proven a very difficult detail for me in my work, even just my practice. ^-^~<3 )
