[Study] Trying to Keep Busy...

This week has been chocked full of waiting. Waiting for new projects to kick into gear. Waiting for my girlfriend/roomie to come back from her trip out west. Waiting for an order of illustration board to reach my doorstep so that I can begin some fun and exciting new personal pieces. And, most of all, waiting for The Dark Knight Rises to be released in theaters (I know. I've got a while for this one.). So, in order to keep busy and productive, I figured I might as well do a digital painting study. It's been a while since I've actually done any digital painting, and I always feel that if I leave it for too long, my abilities will shrivel up. This one took about the length of "Batman Begins" to complete.
