I'm not really too sure what I'm doing here, but I figured any start is better than no start. I won a copy of Painter 11 at ctn-x (thanks Wacom booth) and decided that I was gonna work on trying to do some of them detailed painterly backgrounds that I see people doing. I figured it wouldn't hurt me to learn something new. I swear this thing took forever, but I learned a couple of new things. One of the things I learned was that you actually have to have stronger composition in these because it gets lost in the details. I'll just keep on trucking, I assume that they will progressively get better. If I can finish one more by cripplecon I'm allowed to buy myself a burberry scarf.
