... Of sugar addiction!

I may have not met my goal of losing 10 lbs, but I did finally break the hold processed sugar had on me. I went 3 days without it. I was miserable! I got one nasty migraine for 2 of those days. I even felt too tired to do anything. But I stuck it out and feel better than normal. :D So now, I can walk by sweet treats and not feel compelled to shove 'em down. I even lost 2 lbs in the process. I'm really happy about that.

In even better news, I finally joined a gym. My BFF is my gym partner; joining me in the path for better health and weight.

I'm really excited! :excited:

Chimera by Sombraluz-Images
An assignment for my illustration class. We had to redesign an album cover. I chose "Chimera" by Delerium I wanted to veer away from the obvious mythological creature and decided to make my own version of a chimera monster. Also, I wanted to incorporate the biological chimera and the literal definition as well, being a "fanciful mental illusion or fabrication" and even "A gargoyle". 

I loved using mateuseven's brushes and rillani's brushes ; they were a ton of fun to draw with and added so much texture! I also experimented more with the combination of tracing and drawing with this one; as a way to check anatomy, composition, and a new way of sketching. But, while still drawing with my own style and techniques. I liked it and I think I'm going to keep experimenting with this technique. Its like a "new" version of what Van Gogh had done with Japanese woodblock prints but combining it with collage and painting.

Any constructive criticism is helpful and welcomed! :D
