I had the idea for this one while walking along the water a few weeks ago. It’s a simple premise, so I wanted to have somewhat more fully rendered/realistic art. I worked extensively from photos I took of myself, and contrasted the flat look of the figure with more depth for the background. I’m mostly happy with it, though the water looks a bit like starry night rather than the dazzling shimmers you see in real life.
I had a lot of trouble with Procreate letting me fill in closed shapes, so this ended up taking a lot longer than it should have for the coloring portion.
