Before anything, let me say thanks to Behance for giving me a platform to show my illustrations/designs in a professional manner; I like it already.
NOW, back to this piece. Titled "Change", it started off as a simple drawing of a black guy on a piece of paper (trying to practice my sketching skills). With a lot of mistakes and problems, I felt like chucking it out. Then I realised this would be a good opportunity to add to my digital portfolio (since I have little or nothing). I began sketching half his face and used bird references to sculpt up a bird head using influences from Twilight Princess: The Legend of Zelda also. More influences and references were used throughout the whole of the illustration.
Essentially, "Change" is about the metamorphose of both the mind and body; the changes that were going through my mind at the time of this illustration were life changing and important. These thoughts were then expressed through different things (e.g. the legs shooting out confetti symbolise celebration and so on).
