To braid or not to braid, that was the question. The whole point of doing this image was the back, there's just something erotically sexy about a woman's back. I was going to paint the hair over the shoulder and out of sight, then I decided to see if I could paint a braid, and once the braid was painted I realized I had covered up the subject matter, and the worst part was I saved over my working file with the flattened image (a mistake I never make)
so I took it as a sign that this image was destined to look like this. And in my rage I kept playing with the layers and levels and everything thinking "oh I like that, and that, and that" and you just have to stop at some point and pick one. And then the darker skin I gave her ended up looking lighter that it was supposed to, but I don't even care about that I'm just mentioning it because I know someone else will.
