Big bird in a small cage

I'm finally calling this piece done! There are still parts I'd love to do over now that I now how to do it better but I love it how it is now.

Been working on and off for a good few weeks/months(?) and it has been a lovely voyage through frustration, excitement and fuzzy feelings when all the parts came together. Very excited to get this out!

Image on the left is the initial sketch I made to get the tone and feel right. I really wanted a warm and mysterious setting for this to work. So I started with all warm colors and gradually built up the color scheme after the sketch. Through feedback I realised it needed a bit of balance so I added more cyan and an off screen blue light on the left. This gave some more gravitas to the existing warm color scheme.

Credit where credit is due to one of my favourite bands out there: Patrick Watson to inspire me with his song 'big bird in a small cage'   And my friend Zouhayer Gharbi for relentless feedback and encouragement. Also the Dutch concept artist facebook group which has been really helpful :)
