Digital illustration / evolved process

The creative journey of this artwork started from one of Ka Xiaoxi’s photography, it’s my favorite of his, I’m so drawn by the simplicity and the vague yet powerful message of the emotion that is given by the photo. I had this urge to do a portrait based on this photo and tried to capture what that emotion is. Later on I updated it with indulgent colors and also played a bit with the different compositions.
