It's why I only make 2-3 of these per year X'D
I think this one took about 2 weeks, a couple hours per day❅. Limiting myself to no more than a couple hours per day actually worked in my favor. When I allow myself to really sit down and work on something, I tend to get tired toward the last 25% of it or so, and rush the process. I was able to avoid that here. This one isn't suuuuper polished, but it's also not rushed; I feel I managed to strike a good balance between too polished and too rough!
❅Not counting the time spent on producing many, many "almost there" rough drafts that just didn't cut it, composition-wise. That went on for months!
