I wish I could have spent more time...well actually I spent 40+ hours already, as you can probably tell I'm a huge beginner at painting on photoshop, I've never received training, mostly self-taught by tutorials and exploring. I lost a lot of sleep and my academics and health suffered a bit, but I think it was worth it, really I was in it for the experience and to finally say "I did it, I finished." Because I really went through many drafts and redos with this. I knew I wanted to bring in her red scarf-cape as a motif with this concept, as well as Venetian Carnival influences.
Thanks to dA and Square Enix for the opportunity, experience and personal growth~
Thanks to those who kept me motivated, I love you all~
