FEBRUARY CONTEST: NIGHTFALL
My name is Luke, i've been taking classes on the SVS website.
I am just learning my way around the system, but I find the student work really inspiring.
Thanks so much.
This is my submission for the February contest.
I am starting to build a children's book portfolio and I want this to be my official first image.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

What doesn't say Nightfall like glowing mushrooms surrounded by wolves?

Well I could keep working on this forever but it's time to turn it in! Lovely work, everyone! This is supposed to be an editorial illustration for Popshot, a literary magazine, for something like a poem about how love turns your world upside down but you might not notice.

My favorite place to hang out at night. Brick Lane in London. Where Dr Jekyll buys his bagels.

SVS skills used for this "Nightfall" illustration (don't really know all these skills well yet, so I'm still working on them):
- visual story telling
- all perspectives
- all colors
- how to draw everything
and Lee White's how to create illustration YT session.
This illustration interprets "Nightfall" to mean overcoming sunset blues - that feeling of melancholy at nightfall even if the sunset is stunning, because so much to do and this day is now gone. But the falling night comes regardless and rest is in the end welcomed.
So many creative and different illustrations - it's now past 2AM and I'm still hooked on looking at them all! Enhorabuena!

Once again, it seems like the month has gotten away from me. This scene is an excerpt out of the Navajo tale of how the constellations and night sky came to be, and is really a great story. After the First Man and First Woman, among others, get through hand-setting all the constellations, a great Coyote grabs the blanket and creates the Milky Way!
