Changing background green trees to darker color. Adding a star glow. ;)
My illustration took a turn during the process. The figure in the illustration became larger, and I decided she should be catching a falling star in the silence of the woods. This is always the way with these things ... it seems more appropriate ... "it was so quiet that I heard a falling star, and caught it". I added a little texture to her sweater. Cheers!
In a illustration situation like this, I always like to search out quotes or passages to get my brain working in the same direction.
- Best cure for the body is a quiet mind
- thinking of irony -- how LOUD do you have to say BE QUIET?
- Only the quiet mind can truly hear.
- It's quiet now, so quiet that I can hear people's dreams. Gayle Forman
- The quiet mind is richer than a crown
- Quiet paths lead to understanding.
Places: library, sleeping and dreams, forest, underwater, sleeping babies.
But my mind keeps coming back to times I have been in the woods, and how deliciously quiet it was. Only occasional nature sounds to stir the imagination. How big the trees, how expansive the stars and how small I felt. I think that is what I am going with. I want the person to be very small, either listening or sleeping?
Color pallette maybe: NIGHT, blues, greens and yellow moon glow.
Very busy weekend. Only had time for background thoughts, no human yet ;) ;would like to explore more overlaying texture.
