Doubting every move so far

Sith-tec Warrior Princess. Work in progress. Oil on canvas. 2016

I’ve been working on this commission for an embarrassingly long time now and I still don’t feel good about this painting. I want to finish it soon because it’s going to need time to dry so I can varnish it, but I’m working at a snail’s pace.

I was so excited to make this painting for my client, he is a huge Star Wars fanatic and he requested a painting with a sexy Sith warrior that also incorporated his Mexican American heritage. I chose the imagery of an Aztec princess and imagined her in the Star Wars universe fighting for the Empire. I love the concept and I looked forward to painting something outside of my comfort zone, unfortunately I may be in over my head! I am so unhappy with what I have so far, but I already committed to doing it so I can’t not finish.

I will continue to work on this painting and will post a photo of the finished piece. I’m getting close, I guess.
