Seeing a deer is an amazing experience, even more so if you meet it in its natural habitat. It is like watching a beautiful painting. I also like the blue hour, when the twilight early in the dawn each morning and late dusk each evening, for a short time, dips everything in a blue light. I liked the idea of getting this magical hour with two of the most magnificent animals I know in my design.
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I choose the deer as its a gallant animal that has a wild beauty to it, and the eagle owl, one of the most majestic and strong animals I know, because they are the most mystic animals I know that fit into the blue hour.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
It stands for the forest of my home country and a long history of living together on the same speck of earth.
What story does your design tell?
It tells about the mystical hour when the twilight early in the dawn each morning and late dusk each evening, dips everything in a blue light and makes everything look like a dreamland that is right in front of our door.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I choose a soft brushwork for the hazy mists that make the highlights in the picture glow softly, and hard edge silhouettes to offer clear visible lines for the eye on a small design space.
