Como uma onda no mar (Like a wave in the sea)

Hi guys!

I completed this project a while ago and since I don't have the habit of keeping thumbnails and sketches, I tossed them before I remembered I had to post them here. Shame on me! But anyway, I still have my moodboard and the refined sketches and final image to show you.

The phrase I chose is "Como uma onda no mar", which is Portuguese for "Like a wave in the sea". It is actually the name of a very famous song here in Brazil, by Pop/Rock Brazilian singer Lulu Santos. It's a very sweet song that reminds me of my early years, makes me think of enjoying a cool breeze under the sun and also school vacations. All that in addition to the obvious beach/sea thoughts, even though the song isn't actually about the beach: the lyrics talk about how very little in life is permanent and how life's happenings come and go to us like the waves in the sea.

Anyway, here is a little of my moodboard:



The refined sketches of the elements for my final image:






And the final image. I wanted to go for a more organic feel for the lines, so this one I didn't ink:
