During the project, we had to figure out the importance of the compositional layout, how it reads and tells the story, and how it leads our eye. Overall, I actually think its a very successful illustration.
The subject is Icarrus fighting a serpent to help protect a city in the mountains (in short). In this shot, he is slightly dodging a fire blast coming from the serpent while a part of the city below is on fire. If you want to know the rhyme I chose, I'll provide it below the illustration.
