Concepting Gemini

I sometimes get stuck and have to put a piece I'm working on off to the side. I know what I want to do with it, but it still ends up feeling like it needs more. When I figure it out, I pick it up and finish it. Other times I'm so stuck that I give in to the urge to concept the rest of it out digitally because I'm too afraid to take the next step and I need to see what it will look like before I complete it.

So I ran into this problem with Gemini. I scanned it and fiddled with it in Photoshop and the above is the digital version. I still don't think it looks complete, but it's getting there slowly. Below is a photo of the current state it's in. I got stuck when I tried to paint the stars. No matter what brush I tried to use, and no matter how small the brush was, the stars would come out wonky. I think I've had a long enough break from it. Now it's time to solve the brush problem and get back to work on finishing it.
