Waka waka waka waka waka

What a fun target to process. Been working on this for roughly 2 weeks. After the first week- my computer shutdown/crashed/reset (not sure which), but when I woke up everything was gone and had to restart all over. What a pain! Didn't deter me though, well worth the PITA that can be my computer sometimes.

Hope you enjoy the image!
