Allow me to demonstrate how I have no idea what I'm doing.
Have you ever watched one of those time lapse videos of an artist at work? At first you see something taking shape but you're not sure what... then slowly the image starts to emerge and, ta-da! there it is! Well, that ta-da result is a HECK of a lot harder to come by when it's YOU doing the ta-da-ing.
This is something right now and I don't know what. I shift around to different spots every few minutes, come back to others, erase somethings, experiment with turning layers on and off... It's still a work in progress.
