Edit (again): Sorry for the resubmit, just updating with a newer version.
Oh my goodness. I was going through my old gallery and thinking about stuff when I suddenly realized that I have a couple of paintings from last year that I never submitted. I totally forgot about them xD So even though they're pretty old now I'll submit them because I learned a lot through working on them ^w^
First one is Fleece and Pearls - Redux. This was originally a sketch I did for the 30 Days Challenge and I really wanted to turn it into a finished piece.
It turned out quite different from the original and although I do like this version, people who have seen both versions seem to prefer the original (and I am in agreement with them). I would someday like to do a version closer to the original but we'll see ^w^
Here's a the original if anyone is interested
