Light Spirit’s Forest

Skills: design, Photoshop

This a digital painting of a light spirit sleeping at the base of a tree in darkest reaches of a forest.

In the sense you can say that the spirit is a glowing light in the darkness, highlighting all of her surroundings. The small glowing dots around her are light bugs.

The painting took longer than I thought it would although the real reason is because I could only work on it in my spare time. But I am quite happy on how well it turned out in the end so all is good. Also it gave me a chance to experiment with new drawing techniques to be adapted to the different parts of light and darkness areas.

Finally I am thinking of making an animation based on this character in the future, with the main theme being linked to life and death, gains and losses etc. Her struggles in regaining what she has lost and to gain forgiveness in order to make things right again.
