I made this illustration following the Maria Midtunn Workshop mentioned in a previous blog post. The brief was to frame an image in an unusual way. This was an interesting task and one of the first on my way to make more use of digital collage and textures.
I drew the scene and all of the characters. then coloured and textured the work on photoshop.
I added the leg in the foreground to give a sense of movement in the image. I also tried to keep a focus on the characters whilst mot overdoing the detail around them which would be likely to clutter up the image.
