The bad news is that I am still not happy with the drawing. I'm going to have to re-think how I go about representing this concept. There's more bad news: The way forward I saw... isn't. Not for that piece, anyway. The good news is that it may have sparked something else.
I don't like to admit failure. It annoys me. It annoys me that I fall short of my expectations, and it annoys me that I have wasted time. I'm not one of these artists that 'embraces' failure, certainly not one that celebrates it. The only good thing about it is that it makes me try harder.
