My final commentable piece. i based my illustration on depression stories found on the internet so i felt the best context for my piece would be on a website.
Started off with simple cutting objects out using marquee tool, erasing sharp edges in areas to help blend the images and keep the image flowing
Experimented with various textures for the background. that would later be manipulated to be darker. i also added a hand in his shirt to indicate his wanting to escape his depression
progression of ideas
added a clock in the background to reinforce the idea that people with depression often spend all day waiting for the day to be over.
