I went with a simple styled pic themed around the saying of "no rest for the weary"... when things are tough, you're stretched to your thinnest, and everything seems worse than it really is... it all gets worse... and the only way to advance gives no option of a break or any form of rest. It seems to be a running theme in my life lately, so this is probably the first pic I've done based on my own personal mood... (at least in a conscious way)
Inspired by Showgirl 4
. Wasn't an attempt to draw her, no real reference to it other than the head "pose". There was just something that really drew me in with her pic... and it could have to do with how "real" the experience there would be.
