Last night I was going through my art folder and stumbled upon the WIP of this image... I wondered why I'd ever put it on the back burner for so long, especially considering that it was so close to being finished.
I worked on it for about an hour, added some color effects and a background and, voila, finished product. (Though I might do more experiments with the lighting here - the painterly style and dark, monochrome color scheme seem quite conductive to experimentation).Despite the title, this has nothing to do with a certain Radiohead song...
