Just so everyone knows, this painting was a microbe close to meeting the trash can. . .
It's grown into a love/hate relationship between painting and I.
I screwed up so many times that I just had to get it out of my sight before I ripped it to pieces
I anticipated completing this piece so much just for me to screw it up! T_T
But if you want to know where I got the idea from, I was thinking of how I could paint a full background with a neutral palate, but still make the character pop (but not obnoxiously). At the time, I was really feeling broken rocks and fallen pillars for a background. I also wanted to use a color that I usually never use, which is magenta.
