Sky Earth Fire

I really enjoyed this class, Ray! Your videos are so informative and easy to follow. 

For my project, I started with a quote that I found on Pinterest that I loved: "Sky above me; earth below me; fire within me." I later found out that the quote is from Skyrim (the video game), which is a little underwhelming, but that's beyond the point. ;)

Here's my initial sketch: 

I adjusted it a little after making it a vector image. I felt like the moose walking to the right led your eyes off the page and didn't fill the space well, so it changed to a buffalo. The bonfire didn't fit quite right either. 

Then I added the drop shadow.

I wanted to pair the quote with a nature shot, and I think that was the hardest part of this project for me. The quote was already so busy, but I'm happy with the photo I settled on. 

Let me know what you think. I'm open to constructive criticism. I'm still a beginner, and I know I have lots to learn!
