Process:

I started out with thumbnails and sketched out a rough composition. With the composition and overall concept in motion, I loosely threw my idea onto the paper. By leaving some of the details up in the air, I allowed myself some creative room to improvise as I went along. I chose this technique to maintain a high level of creativity, while still ensuring conceptual focus and a balanced composition.
