This is the final image. Overall, I like how it came out. One thing that I need to stop doing is using messy brushstrokes in my paintings. I have a hard time not doing that because painting subtle midtones is not always easy. I also need to have some more polish in my work in the future. Up close, you can see some of the messy brushstrokes still that I need to fix. This image is also up on my website so check it out when you get a chance.
I'm going to start a holiday themed illustration next. Stay tuned.
