Like most of my classes, this illustration is inspired by a story -
This is the story of a young girl named Lisa who discovers she has an evil twin while playing by the pond in her backyard.
Below is a breakdown of my creative process:
Part 1 - When sketching concepts for my fantasy illustration, I found myself drawn to this doodle of 'good/evil' balanced over a line of symmetry.
