One day, if I ever become a renowned artist, historians will be able to authenticate my works by running a DNA analysis on ALL THE DAMN CAT HAIR embedded into each piece, because it never, ever fails.
So I'm not going to lie: this photo has been doctored a fair bit to reduce some of the glare and emphasize the dark background. I used to have a decent scanner, which may have mitigated the issue, but I don't anymore.

Unfortunately it was a regular pain-in-butt to paint. You know how I hate hands? Hands shrouded in darkness is even harder. I finally got my right hand looking the way I wanted, but I never quite got the left hand working quite right (ha!).
I do, however, like the way that the guitar worked out. Trying to get the lighting on my face was troublesome: it took a while before I stopped looking like a bearded man. I kind of look like a Muppet, but I can live with that.
