Hi everyone and welcome to this week’s Timelapse Tuesday! Here’s my second finished illustration for the Anxious Flora series “Piercing / Inner Fears ” . The main concept is how one’s own inner fears and worries pierce through ideas and crystallize into one’s own self. Though not exactly “flowers”, quartz crystals seem to “bloom” from their bases. I enjoyed practicing a male portrait rather than a female one and modelling light values on a toned paper. I also love how the quartz spikes turned out in red and pink! I’m thinking of doing another illustration for this series with gouache on black drawing paper (hopefully it won’t buckle!). I’m reading up on Pop Surrealism and Geek Art as research nowadays, it’s been great!
