Ach, so late! The drawing for today's page went really fast, and I was happy with the liveliness and expression that came out of it, even if it was slightly cartoony—but this doesn't seem to fly when it comes to me doing a full-on painting approach, so the painting ended up being a struggle against something that just wouldn't sit right with the face, and eventually, mostly after I'd stopped streaming and went back to it (I think sometimes when I'm streaming I feel reluctant to launch into the radical revisionism that would require me to be running back and forth between my drawing table (where the live webcam lives) and the big mirror on the bathroom, for getting a different view (flipped in the mirror) of the piece to help sort out drawing problems...so I put it off and try to work around whatever the thing that's bugging me is, instead of tackling it head-on), significant portions of it ended up getting redone in what I guess is a more realistic style, but I can't say it was an intentional style choice exactly—it was just the result of a long bout of excessive fussiness. All that white on the left side is white ink! : o And the pinkish purple where the cheek meets the corner of the mouth is a funky white ink/watercolor hybrid; the cheek furrow next to the mouth is actually a furrow in the paper, where I rubbed the top layer of the paper off with my finger; that was pretty much an accident, but it just happened to be an accident in the right spot to accentuate the expression. ^_^ Anyway this is why it's late as I post this, much too late to write a blog article, see.

Just tell them they've got a giant bed-bug infestation, guaranteed to move anyone.
