Well, the goal was to create an original piece for my sister's wedding. Everyone who attended was to sign the artwork and it was to be preserved as a token of that day. She wanted to incorporate a dead tree in the piece so it seemed I had my work cut out for me.
I began by sketching random trees that I came across. I would spend hours just doodling branches and trunks, just so I can get the feel for the design.
I delivered the piece to the wedding. But I remembered a sketch I did with Batman and I liked a lot. So I decided to work on that sketch and this is what I came up with. It originally started on my sketchbook. I then took a photo of the pic and uploaded it into photoshop. There, I was able to complete the piece and work on my digital painting skills. I had an amazing time working on this image and I look forward to creating more in the same fashion.
