I would like to preface this by saying, I LOVE THIS THEME. At this point in my art "career" I am attempting to switch from the digital style of art I have been using for 5 years to a much more "painterly" aesthetic. This has been really hard for me and since the pieces take so much more time keeping the inspiration is difficult. I loved this challenge because it pushed me to both finish a "painterly" piece and look at the two possible styles side by side. This has really inspired me to continue on this somewhat difficult path to painting digitally because I definitely like the look way more.

This COTM was way more difficult than others for me, not just because of the two styles, but also because I had NO ideas. Often I will sit down after watching the announcement video with a piece of paper and write and doodle a LOT of ideas. I end up with about twenty that then get paired down to three, from which I make full sketchs and role with it. In this case though the ideas would just not flow. I spent thirty minutes procrastinating my geometry homework to get a single idea, that I didn't even like. In total I had more names than actual Ideas and went with the only one I could bring myself to make a thumbnail sketch of.

In the end I actually really like this piece and how it shows both the harsh difference but also the blending. I think this is one of the best pieces I have made to date, thanks to the "painterly" style of half the piece, and I am super proud. I would like to work on it more and refine it a LOT but I don't think I have the inspiration and energy to fix it even more.

Thank you for looking at my piece
