    Illustration project for SVA senior portfolio class with Steve Brodner.
This is the second piece created in my senior portfolio class at SVA with Steve Brodner. 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.
