We were listening to music in the studio - Submotion Orchestra. I had had a creative block for a while so was doodling some shapes. I decided to follow the musics themes and tried to create an ethereal atmospheric illustration to represent it.
I used ink for the tree,
I layered the two with a piece of torn paper in a vaguely humanlike shape in between,
I painted two different ocean environments in acrylic.
I painted some suggestive leaves in acrylic.
I then combined all the elements digitally, editing colours and adding, details like a light source and shadow to create a believable sense of place.
