A Fine Evening

I drew the actual pencil drawing in 2005 or 2006 while I was still in High School. I still liked it years later, and decided I wanted to scan it and digital paint it. I worked on it a little here and there and kept losing interest. It looks a little mismatched since the work is done in hour-long bursts over years time. But the other night I finally decided to simply finish it so I could add it to my body of work and be done with it.

The concept behind it is "simple pleasures" in life. That was what I actually called the black and white drawing. But as I dressed her up in the digital painting, I decided she was having a fine evening enjoying simple pleasures, and changed it to A Fine Evening.
