Trying to find a photo reference of a snail, and the photo that I stumbled upon is from an article titled, “What Do Snails Think About When Having Sex?” Also no I wasn’t planning on drawing snails having sex, but maybe now I should! – moi
This piece was inspired by Illustration Friday; the theme of the week is Snail.
John told me I should draw a snail with a city on it’s back. I didn’t want to draw a city, but a botanical garden on the back of a snail. The idea evolved and I thought about how flowers grow out of concrete.
Using references and having a clear direction in my head I pushed this piece.
I am really happy with the end result. Lately I haven’t been elevating my pieces by either learning something new or perfecting what I know. This time around I wanted to push my usage of textures and being more comfortable with the pen point tool.
Thanks for checking out my drawing.
