Above is a development illustration on one of the fairy tales I was working on this summer. I was trying out different perspectives and I thought it’d be interesting to see some whales underneath, to give that sense of depth and scale. (I thought hey, imagine an albino mermaid…)
The image below is a circular wet-on-wet ink perspective study. I was combining the ideas of ‘blue crescent’ and ‘floating above the whales’ in the simplest piece possible. It felt fitting and it was intriguing to see whether I’d succeeded in the eyes of others.
