I'm uploading this and feeling several emotions at once; relief, disappointment in myself, pride in myself, anxiety about my process, and concern over where the time it took me to actually complete this went.
When I started it, it was Animal Crossing fanart, hence the name. That was when ACNL was new, which was in June 2013. As of this upload it's March 2014. I started this 9 months ago, I redid it three times, and I gave up on it a dozen. I don't know why, but it was a challenge even though Ididn't make it experimental until after most of the coloring was complete. I might have to meditate on which part of my spirit this endeavor tasked the most and what I can take away from it.
I wanted to add flowers and some background mountains - she's on top of a very high hill - but I figured the process might add another 9 months to the drawing and I don't know why but I just want to upload it. I don't know if I'll update it later or not, depends on if I decide to go through with adding flowers, but for now here it is, an idea I'm ultimately glad I didn't scrap and did, in some way, see through to the end.
I don't know if I'll make a jigsaw puzzle. It depends on if I feel like adding more to it or if anyone wants me to make one of it the way it is. During a redesign I cropped the sides so I could make a jigsaw puzzle of it within the resolution limits of the site I use so it wouldn't be much trouble.
I hope everyone likes this. There are things I both like and don't like about it, but I've been working on it on and off for nearly a year so I need to distance myself from it and maybe it'll look better to me later.
