Hermit

"Hermit" Prismacolor pencil on black paper 11" x 14"
This one was a bit painful to do, the over all idea was mixed, from her being a hollow shell for the hermit crab to live in and also that her vagina was a giant crab. I thought the hermit crab's shell would integrate nicely, but it didn't, having to give up the girls legs which wasn't a compromise I liked.
Overall though she is not horrible, which was my fear. I put so much time into the layers that you can't see the out come for days, I can't tell if the face will look okay until it is practically complete, and some times the outcome is horrible and must be scrapped. Some are salvageable but not many.
