Peacock

You not believing in me, and picturing your giggling face motivated me to get up and go to the gym at 6 in the morning. – moi

When I was twelve years old I lived in Germany. It was summer my dad brought my sister and I to his work on a military base. He was washing his car, and my sister and I entertained ourselves exploring the perimeter. We stumbled upon this walled off garden and to both our surprise a peacock popped out of nowhere.

It was a surreal experience since neither of us could picture meeting a peacock on a military base. We didn’t know what temperament the creature would have so we marveled it’s beauty from a distance.

I really like this piece and made it start to finish using Adobe Photoshop. In my mind it was actually a bit more cartoon than how it actually turned out.
