This is an illustration I put together for Shutterstock. They contacted me to come up with somthing they could feature on their monthly blog as a tutorial. It was uploaded this week, so if you are interested in finding out some of my techniques, follow this link; http://www.shutterstock.com/blog/advanced-tutorial-build-a-house
The illustration was comped together using only imagery from Shutterstock, in combination with digital painting.
"This illustration is a comment on time passing and memory. The 3D house on the Polaroid is the house you remember, so full of life and vivid in your memory, it pops up. This contrasts with present time and the house as it stands now, old, worn, and forgotten in the background, with the sun fading in the distance."
