Well this is going to be a new direction for me in an attempt to distance myself from Deviant art and their seemingly higher than thou attitude. So here's an attempt at my own version of a blog.
First things first, since this is an art page lets see if I can post something and not delete it before posting.
This particular piece was an experiment that involved only using the colour purple, the exception being the bright reds of the jewels. Also used were a set of brushes that were odd and which I generally don't use.
