A Dream

A mysterious fantasy-illustration

A dreamy fantasy illustration of a man in a suit, carrying a rose. What might his intentions be?


I started by making several sketches with different poses and perspectives, before settling with one. The person depicted was supposed to look flirty and dream-like. Since the figure was also kind of floating on a cloud, it was difficult finding a good pose for her.

Like with lots of my fantasy illustrations, I make at least two sketches. With the very first sketch I'm looking for a good pose and composition. With the second sketch I'm pinning down details, like in this case the look and position of the wings.

This time the background was not part of the sketch, since I already knew it would be an unspecific cloudy sky with a full moon. After having finished my second iteration of my figure, I just started sketching with colors right away to block in the background.
