In other news, I've been havin' regular migraine auras which is no fun, let me tell ya. Fortunately, I never get to the migraine part of it, but the aura part of it is just a little bit scary as an artist. It makes these jagged arcs of light in one side of both eyes and basically I can't see out of one side of both eyes. One day it will be the left, the next the right. It's rather uncomfortable too. The only thing I could do was to try and figure out what triggers this mess and I am pretty sure it is the HIGH caffeine intake from all my Starbucks days. I'm gonna switch to tryin' all their nasty juices, I guess.
So I didn't make much progress on Gimli yesterday, but today I got him sketched out. His references aren't many, but his beard is different in every one! I decided to give him maximum hair/beard beads. I suspect Gimli is kind of a ladies' dwarf and would appreciate the bonus bling. His color pop will be his Leaf of Lorien which I offset so you can actually see it.
