An series of augmented reality illustrations

Take me there is a series of 3 illustrations exploring the power of storytelling through augmented reality. I want to show the blurred human idea of reality, using elements from architecture and nature to create a window to different, surreal and magical worlds. 

This idea has been going around in my head for a while, and when I finally started working on it, Covid hit the world and added another angle to my project: In times of lockdowns, it became some kind of escape for me, dreaming away in magical forests and surreal buildings. The humans in my illustrations are sometimes lost, confused, sometimes dreaming, dancing, or frozen in time.

In this first piece, I've visualized my feelings around isolation. While being somehow trapped in one place, I've also experienced that it gives me space to look at the bigger picture and to slow down.

The process
Color scheme
I chose a natural and muted palette with some highlights like the bright turquoise, to add a surreal element.

The 2D artwork
I've started with a "regular" 2D illustration, and then expanded the layers to fade out to the sides as the artwork isn't required to fit into a rectangle in AR.

Setting up the art in Adobe Aero (caution, timelapse :)

The final piece
Huge thanks to #adobe and their #adoberesidency program for funding my project.
