Digital Illustration

“Wisdom” Illustration for #IllustrationFriday

This week’s illustration prompt was WISDOM. Right away I knew I wanted to draw a women standing by the ocean and have her shadows be versions of her younger selves. I wanted the shadows to represent how we gain wisdom as we age. I decided the best way to do this would be to create a digital collage. I used a photograph of the ocean I took many years ago at Cannon Beach, Oregon. I hand painted the woman in Photoshop and then used copy-right free silhouettes from Pixabay as the shadows.
