The final ink layer is about half done, which by my reckoning makes the whole thing about 75% completed. Quite pleased with it, so far. Quite excited to have it finally finished, one of these days...
The last 25% of a large drawing is always the hardest. You're so anxious to get it over and done with, the temptation to take "shortcuts" gets harder and harder to resist. Starting a big painting is easy. Finishing one is a nightmare.
