This was originally going to be one of a series of practice paintings I planned, themed "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Essentially, the idea was to paint my character doing a bunch of different jobs. However, I ended up spending all my time on just two of them, so I decided to finish them as independent pieces instead. Since I'm still exploring and trying to find my own artistic style, I redid part or all of this painting more times than I can count before I decided to finish; even though it made me really uncomfortable to let some imperfections slide, I'm glad I did because it feels good to have something that's "complete".
