Wanderer - Pencil

Most of my illustrations begin as pencil drawings that are then scanned in and digitally painted.

GOAL: Create an illustration of a character that is an adventurer or wanderer.

I decided to create an image with a strong figure-ground relationship because I wanted to emphasize the character and the burden of his pack and his necessities rather than show a small figure amidst the vastness of nature. This image is about the character himself, not the act of wandering or exploring.
