Heh, yeah, the funny thing is that I started out in the top right corner and the whole thing was only going to take about a week, but then I started doing smaller and smaller details (the head being the last thing to finish). Kept the big details though as I thought it would be wrong and it would also take away a bit of the adventure. I guess you could say that this went a bit out of proportion :D

This one flew right under the old radar (until I saw the 'Highlights' image) Now it all makes sense (in a weird psychedelic way, lol).

Oh makes sense does it? A bit long-winded project though, hope I manage to stick to smaller projects than this.

That sounds true, even if you would say that you are finished painting or drawing or whatever, the point about art is that it is only art when someone is looking at it, when someone stops looking at it then the piece is not finished being art, it is just abandoned.
