This is my contest entry for Bluecanvas' current competition. The objective was to illustrate your own interpretation of the phrase "New Beginnings."
As with most of my illustrations, the end result does not really resemble what I imagined. Sometimes this is hard to accept, but I suppose it is simply the reality of translation as well as a lack of effort to start over. I did ultimately, though, go through some harsh edits on this drawing, cutting out a bunch of unnecessary information. My inclination is oftentimes to over-clutter my drawings instead of giving them the space to breath that they need.
The creepy "corn fetuses" did not turn out nearly as creepy as I hoped they would. Maybe next time.
