Scream Contest Fun - The Yawn
The Munch challenge was to recreate the Scream painting in a new and personal way using recreations of Munch's brushes by Kyle T. Webster.
My original idea for the illustration was showing the coldness of a large city, a juxtaposition with the original country-like scene in Munch's painting. As I worked, I realized it isn't the cold crush of the city that makes you crazy. It's the exhaustion. So, the scream turned into a horrified yawn, with dark tired eyes.
My image started and was almost completed in Sketch on an iPad Pro, but I had to finish it up in Photoshop. I needed those mixer brushes and a color swap.
Below is a gallery of the Sketch versions with the final. Then a detail of the final ladies on their iPhones, which is oddly my favorite part. Comments are welcome.
