Silent Awe At What They Stood Before (2006)
I completed this illustration in November 2006 using primarily Pencil & Photoshop. You can still see some of the Pencil.
This was a rewarding piece for me as it marked a leap forward for myself at the time pushing me away from pursuing Animation and concentrating instead on a career in Illustration.
From the start I wanted to create a single piece that would be a benchmark in quality to work from. The next step would have been to create an Illustrated children's book at a comparable quality however I never quite developed the right idea for the two characters. Rudy a rather Large Ant-eater and a character I simply referred to as "The Catcher" primarily a character who was trying to build a zoo of animals within the forest.
