This is the second piece created in my senior portfolio class at SVA with Steve
The challenge was to create a piece incorporating 'my guardian angel',
or a guardian spirit. The technical challenge I created for myself was
to achieve order and emphasis on the main character by using value and
color to my advantage.
I chose a Chinese dancing lion as the
guardian spirit--the character in the illustration is affected by the
festive and cheerful spirit of the lion and lives out a beautiful life
in New York City.
I also had a lot fo fun creating the environment and the foreground characters.
