Flashback time. :iconadamwarren: was at the 2013 Comic Expo. I commissioned him to do up a picture of Zaz. He did a bang up job, and I wanted to color it. He said sure, and I was beyond excited to work on it. Cue "cool story bro" ending and sunshine and rainbows all around, right? Well...

One small problem being I'm exceptionally hard on myself under normal circumstances. Now imagine how much harder I dragged myself through the mud working on something drawn by one of my idols. Eventually the self criticism(and my general lack of skill at the time) made it not fun to work on anymore and I parked it in my WIP folder. I'd open it up now and again and try to make it work but it just kept grinding me down so I'd close it up for another month or two.

Flash forward to yesterday, with me ripping open a bunch of paintings and touching them up(tendonitis has been wrecking me for the last few weeks, so I'd had to change my whole setup to accommodate my recovery needs and wanted to start small to get acclimated with my new arrangement) and I decided "y'know what, today's the day".

Between finally finishing this one off, and finally getting back into photoshop after nearly 3 weeks of being unable to work on anything, it feels pretty ****ing good, man.
