This rushing rapids scene was particularly challenging due to the river which needed to display movement and the luminescent/reflective qualities of water while maintaining the rather flat style of these illustrations. I spent the majority of my time that I worked on this illo on the water. Overall, I am quite satisfied with how it came out!
Shortly after, I finished this illustration of Polina and Oleg are at a pavillion where a movie is being shot. The pavillion background was borrowed from another illustration, and I drew the camera + tripod, stool, and fairy costume assets. The finished illo is below.
