Sometimes I like riding my bike along the Arakawa river bank.
I started this self-portrait late last year, as an exercise in backgrounds. However, my hair got cut short shortly after so I kinda shelved it. Tonight my mind was doing the whole overthinking thing again about random things I shouldn't even be worrying about so I went ahead and finished it to get things off my mind.
I tried a Makoto Shinkai type of technique where you use a photo as a base and do a paint over. However, I planned the lighting a bit poorly and good god, I cannot render grass to save my life. Learned a few things, though. Now that my hair is short I need to do another one and hopefully do a better job~
