Sometimes I try to challenge myself with tasks and rules like "no zooming" or "one only brush" and things like that. It help me to avoid my 'comfort zone' and push to paint different things in different styles.
This time I tried a "no layers" rule, so, no layers, no fx, no strange blending modes. Just canvas and brushes. No reference used.
Painted in Painter X Demo in one day (wow! sounds like "30 trial days 30pics" :) ).
Hope you like.
