I initially struggled with this style trying to make the defined shapes without any outlines as shown in the lesson videos. But due to software limitations and lots of headaches, I decided to compromise and utilize my style of line art just a bit thicker and with less texture involved and it turned out really great! I did two iterations to showcase my personal happy places.
The first one I made shows me floating in a pool in some tropical climate. Although I personally prefer the ocean, especially the gulf of mexico, there isn't really a time that I've ever experienced the level of tranquility that you get in a pool all by yourself. The crashing waves and sea wind is wonderful but it's not silent if you get what I'm saying.
The second one shows me sitting atop one of my favorite mountains in New England: Mount Monadnock. It is a 3000 foot tall mountain with no trees at the top, just tons of huge boulders and rock faces and there is a 360 panoramic view that is breathtaking. I absolutely love hiking, it is one of my all time favorite activities. It's great exercise and so meditative. It helps you re-connect with nature and to remember the inherent abundance that is always around us.
This was such a fun project and I'm super grateful for the amazing learning experience provided by Olimpia! Fantastic!
