The word of the week, WINGS. This week was harder for me to finalize an idea. I narrowed it down to 2 completely different ideas, Icarus (the boy who flew too close to the sun) or a butterfly hanging her wings out to dry. I wanted to push myself more, and since the butterfly comp is what I would normally choose, I chose to draw Icarus.
Icarus was such a challenge! I wanted to show him falling and drew him from almost every angle possible; head first, feet first, just an arm grasping a feather. I finally settled on this comp.
