Just for fun-- girl on swing plus process pictures

I have been working on this one for a while. I initially drew the trees and fired them. I really liked the idea of making a pair of trees that were intertwined as a symbol of mature love. I then added the girl on the swing. I had planned to have a little boy pushing her on the swing (sort of young love juxtaposed against the trees) but she demanded to be the focus. So I fired her on and then she sat idle for a few weeks while I worked up the nerve to add some color. She's certainly not perfect, but she is
