Sun Planet

Open submission for the Association of illustrators. 

The brief was to an image depicting narrative. I started working in Z-Brush first creating a 3D asset of a sunflower. I wanted to create a scene where the vectors of each Stalk was accurately rendered out and placed in situ creating organic realism.

The piece has so many process and detail, from each vector to the individual painting of each sunflower head, leading to a monumental effort. This narrative of process represents the energy that sunflowers can convert through their heads.

The Piece was created to depict the awe inspiring fact that Sunflowers have a greater energy to mass ratio than our Sun.
