When I started on this artwork, I was in a bad place mood-wise. By the time I completed it, I was feeling much better. Medication and other therapies seem to be helping me greatly at the moment. I still fell compelled to share this artwork for all of those who aren’t feeling better.
I tried to create a beautiful tropical paradise that most people would dream of living in. Only it’s no paradise to her. It’s a cage where she is stranded and alone. She is crying out, signaling for help.
The hardest part of creating this artwork was actually positioning the stones to form the word “HELP”. They’re only readable from a certain camera angle so every time I moved the camera a bit, I’d have to reposition the stones. The island set is quite an old one but I updated it with new textures and added new plants and props from more recent and detailed sets. It took a lot of postwork to achieve the “Instagram retro vintage look”. I used several actions, overlays, adjustment layers, etc. to the point that I lost count of my layers!
