Not real what to think yet. Honestly, I feel a bit overwhelmed now that I'm knee-deep into this. I realize now I'm nowhere near as far along in the learning as I thought I was. Can't say I'm seeing patterns or anything.

But my skills aren't quite to the point where I can market myself as a professional cover artist. Truth is, I don't know what I don't know yet. So here's a challenge to rectify that gap.
