I was inspired by an artist I really like. http://michaelshapcott.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4s8awg and I used this photo as a reference. http://lukassowada.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=72#/d404sqg
It was a present for my painting teacher for teaching me how to "see" this year. She taught me everything I know about art today, especially the history.
