Wow, this sure took ferever, but was completely worth it! I'd been kinda feelin' uncertain of what I wanted to do artistically a few days ago, an' while I couldn't make up my mind I happened upon this neat expression meme -- [link]
I figured I'd do it 'cos, well, one, I suck at expressions, an' two, I thought it'd be a good opportunity to work on a simpler style while also workin' on breakin' down my really restrictive color barriers. So I did that. I could still push my color and expressions further, but this is, from my perspective, a crazy improvement over what I've been able to produce in either of those areas in the past.
