Did this after my SAI trial expired. It turned out that Photoshop Elements, despite its limitations, was still better for digital paintwork. This directly deals with a peculiar fan fic I've had at the back of my mind for a couple of years.
Interesting back story: I was randomly posting pics I was proud to my desktop background... this being a pic that to this day I am very proud of. However, the central figures eyes... literally freaked me out as I found myself drawn to those highlights.
