this would be my tribute to the next StarCraft expansion, rendering this year the Year of the Swarm. while i really wanted to try and draw Infested Kerrigan, that would have most likely killed me due to the details, and i felt obligated to choose regular human Kerrigan instead, with her becoming de-infested.
i tried out a new painting style with this, as it turns out the method i worked with made it much easier to draw, which was probably another one of the reasons i was able to even finish this.
and i can't tell you how proud i am of myself for a change. art has been a really big problem lately, my inspiration and motivation has fluctuated a lot and it's really frustrated me. however, my muse seemed to return from his vacation and literally punched me in the face, giving me all the motivation i needed to get this done. while this is far from being any kind of masterpiece, i still like how it came out for taking 6 hours to draw.
i could go on but i'm tired and i'm afraid i'd sound too self-absorbed over this, so i'll leave it at that.
