Take me there
(3/3)
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.

The process
Color scheme
I love working with natural, muted colors.

Sketches
I started with a 2D illustration in Adobe Fresco that I could later break up into layers and animate.

Finished 2D artwork

Frame-by-frame animation

Cloud animation
I added an ambient animation to the clouds.

Layering
Next I broke the whole artwork up into separate layers in order to place them in 3D space.

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