here's one without photoshop. actually, it was more like a color sketch (smaller format too, around 5x7 inches), but, like with the previous one, i decided to just punch it up a bit in photoshop and use for the final. number ten! it would be quite awesome if it lived to see fifty. or hundred. by then maybe i wouldn't just plunge in and shove paint around randomly. but i'm not complaining, these, compared to the first few color ones are big steps forward.
after finishing, i sometimes convert them to grayscale- usually i'm surprised they hold up-
