Swimming in Etheria

Digital illustration (sized for desktop)
August 22nd, 2013

bathing_in_etheriaThis project started off as a study in backgrounds. I am challenging myself to see if I can recreate backgrounds from my favourite animated shows using only illustrator. Most of the backgrounds are supposed to have more brushwork (better suited in photoshop), and so I’ve strayed a little as far as blending goes.


Like the desktop? Let me know and I’ll post a link for a download (sans watermark). I made it at 1920 x 1200 initially.

Feel free to download this image as a 1920 x 1200 px desktop background. Read some Calvin and Hobbes today.

I’m looking at doing some My Little Pony’s (Faust, Friendship is Magic), some Studio Ghibli, and some Loisel. I’ve done some studies on the amazing Bill Watterson.
