It was a success, but not close enough to where I want to be. I'm still not as fast as I want to be. So that's something I will have to work on. I will follow Daniel Warrens strategy of full timed 2hr studies in both reference and in still life.
Things that still need work: Color, pen handling, finalizing pieces, and still missing that comfort level from traditional into digital. It will take some time though, which I know.
