With this illustration, I wanted to paint something with a very strong narrative, so I spent quite some time thinking of the concept for this image. I do want to leave it up to the viewer to decide what's happening as well. Overall I'm very pleased with the image, as it turned out how I envisioned it from the start, which seems to be getting easier for me to do with time, thankfully. Hope you enjoy!
Step-By-Step images can be seen on my ArtStation as well. Enjoy!
