This was a commission for someone who requested an R2...back at the end of 2006! I am nothing if not timely. *groan*
Sometimes characters give me trouble. Sometimes I'm just not feelin' it. So I give it go for a bit, think it sucks, and let it alone for a time. I'll come back to it later and give it another shot. Nope, still sucks. Let it go again. This goes on, sometimes for weeks. Sometimes for months. I'm thinking I shouldn't even take commissions sometimes. I don't like saying no, but sometimes it's better than having people wait for damn near two years!
As for R2 here...I'm glad I kept at it, 'cause I actually kind of like how he turned out. Hope you all like it!
