During the Illustration course at the Fachhochschule Vorarlberg, I had to make some illustrations for children. The main goal was to work with multiple layers. This means that every element needs to be done on a separate layer. I used finger-paint for the colour of the different layers.
Another assignment was to find an interesting artist and try his style. I chose the great Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali.
I used his painting ‘The temptation of ST. Anthony’ as an inspiration source. Next to the right foot of the peacock there is a tiny human for scale.
And this is what I made of it. Used Photoshop to give the drawing some colour.
