Look Inside

Haven't posted in awhile. Finished this one today. The meaning is, the fish represents humanity/us and we "swim" in the darkness, not knowing that Heaven is right inside of us. All you have to do it look inside and believe! This is a Polychrome & Prismacolor drawing on a 14 by 17 inch piece of Strathmore drawing paper. Reference by Nokkaew Macro Photography.

The colours are so rich and vibrant! I love your concept and your choice of symbols here, they seem so fitting! The fact that you chose to depict the darkness with a gradient and "heaven" with flame tries is something that really spoke to me :) While I notice the angel-shapes emanating light as well, I feel like the flame trees are so much more relatable. The entire concept of heaven is so complicated sometimes and terrifying too... but heaven need not be some grand place we must arrive at, it can just be the moment we're in and the beauty that surrounds us :love: The flair and folds in the fins too are so graceful and the way they cut through the darkness and hold their own with a barely noticeable glow is such a beautiful touch too! Thank you for sharing your work, it's incredible :heart:

Thank you so much Alexander!! I really appreciate that! It's funny and interesting that you chose trees instead of clouds. Doing clouds with colored pencil is still a learning curve to me, but those can be trees as well, like autumn trees. Thanks again for your appreciation and comment!

:heart: I did think of flame trees first because I have a giant one growing right outside my window, so there's clearly a bias there! Though I suppose clouds would make more sense given the "heaven" angle :D
