I just realized I never posted this. This was the first freelance project I had after quitting my job to stay home. The concept was a late 70's/early 80's metal album art (think cover art for Heavy Metal magazine). It was also the first time I ever used gouache. Not only had I never used the medium before, the client was being unnecessarily detail picky, and as any person knows, always makes a mess of things in the end. I struggled through a project I absolutely hated, and it took 6 months to get paid for. It's also the last project I did without a written contract. I considered burning this for therapy, but will keep it as a reminder of everything that can go wrong working for someone.
