Painting

I finished the first draft of "A Regular Hero" today. (It came out to 19 scenes, so tuftears wins the contest. :D )

So I spent the evening painting to celebrate. Or something like that. @_@

My thought process when painting is something like this:

This sketch is okay. It'll look better when it's colored.
... no, that made it much worse.
I have no idea what I'm doing. Why do I keep using the marker and airbrush tool for everything?
*zen-like state where I have no thoughts*
This part is a disaster.
*zen*
Now it's just bad.
*zen*
Let's just do a different part.
ZOMG painting with a reference is wonderful why do I not always use a reference?
*zen*
Why do I ever paint anything but naked torsos this is the best ever. Except maybe horses.
*zen*
actually this robe is kind of fun too.
*zen*
ohh this looks pretty good I might even like this picture when I'm done
*zen*
Why are hands so hard to draw?
Hands STAHP
no hands please just look like hands
just look a little like hands
please
I even have a reference why can't I do this?
and hands are so beautiful too whyyyyyyyy
*cries forever*
that's it I give up YOU ARE CRUEL, HANDS, CRUEL and I'm leaving you for hair.
*zen*
*more zen*
*wonders why my hand hurts*
*goes back to ignoring pain because zen*
That's about done ...
... oh wait that one part is still bad. NO NOT THE HANDS I HATE YOU HANDS and you're just going to stay bad. That other part.
*tries to fix*
How did I not notice until now that the proportions are completely messed up here?
*tries to fix the proportions at way too late a stage*
uh okay.
I should do a simple background thing.
*plays with every tool in artRage*
*zen*
Huh. Is that how it looks at the end? I thought it was gonna be better.
Oh well. Done now!
What how did it get be so late? @_@

I'll put the picture behind a cut-tag. It's a beefcake picture of Frost, because I decided if I'm mainly drawing him 'cause he's pretty I might as well go full objectification with it.
