too much moldy peaches, methinks.

My hd went out and I lost about 20-30 hours of work on this. I tried to get a few of me geeky friends to recover the psd but to no avail. I basically only had it uploaded on DA and was able to use that as a reference point. There are parts I'm happier with and parts I'm not, but i had to fully rework it in order for me to have a high res version for prints and the like.

I've been working on it a few weekends now and got to that point where I can't really do much more on it and feel happy so i'm done.

sucks losing a lot of work as it's pretty discouraging and difficult to get yourself motivated enough to go back.

aw man- that's really aggrivating. But sometimes loosing the origional can be a blessing in diguise- I know you're tired, but is there anything else you'd change?

I know what you mean! I was about 75% finished with one of my works when the file got corrupted and I couldn't open it no matter what I did. I ended up using the latest WIP screenshot I took of the piece to finish it. It took me weeks to muster up the energy to do that, I was so discouraged!

Anyway yours ended up looking great!

yeah, that's exactly what happened... i was like "where's the topmost layer?"... "no really... where is the rest of my damn work?" in the version I had saved in psd format on my external drive. it really took a minute for me brain to process that I could have possibly been so stupid as to not back it up once it was complete.

Anyhow, live and learn I suppose.

Oh, God, I can't even imagine losing that much work on an image..
How frustrating.

Still, it's very beautiful.
