I was excited yet nervous to work on this design. I knew the lighting was going to be difficult. I also knew it would be hard to work with the crack. I could barely see it inside in the building. I wanted to work with lighter colors to lighten up the room. I also wanted the bell to be in the spotlight. I worked a lot with yellow and white. I created a small shadow effect by blending another bell in the background. I also played around with the background by texturing the Liberty Bell with different effects. I hope you can see the textures used in this design.
I made five variations. I was undecided for a while on which one to post in the shop. The design I placed in the shop looks very different from the original. I will post several variations on google plus and in the Art Promoter Community. 4 out of 5 focus primarily on blue and yellow. The fifth one is very dark. It has lots of black, dark blue, and white. I was thinking about deleting it but I will feature the design in the upcoming album.
One thing I’m trying to do is visualize what the design looks like before I started working on it. Sometimes I go in a different direction but I believe I hit the mark with this one. I would like to travel to many destinations and put my own spin on nature. I do hope you like this design. I had fun making it.
