Slice of Paradise

Digital Illustration

This picture took almost 3 years to complete. The original that I started kept getting buried. I didn’t know what to do with it and it kept looking like junk. Essentially, I scrapped it this year when I picked it up again. I love the original photo so much and wanted to get it completed. When I finally did sit down again to tackle it, I was able to finish pretty quickly. Sometimes you just need to let paintings rest for awhile. Don’t push it, and eventually the motivation will come and you’ll be able to figure out how to finish it out.

Tools Used

  • Adobe Photoshop CC
  • Wacom Cintiq Companion 2
