You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart.
I created the first version of this artwork back in 2011 as a Xmas gift for my dancer cousin. It was a much more simple artwork back then and my skills have vastly improved in the past four years so I should hope I could create something better now. This new artwork has much more detail with a smoother appearance and better postwork effects. Looking back at the old artwork with fresh eyes, I thought it looked too flat and lacking of detail so when I created this new version my main goals were to create a sense of depth and to add much more detail. I think I accomplished both. I mainly just wanted to keep the theme of the dancer on the rooftop in the city at sunrise while everything else was fair game. I’ve never tried using lens-flare effects in one of my artworks before but I think they worked out quite well for this one. I’m glad I decided to revisit this artwork, I’m quite pleased with how this turned out.
