A Glimpse of the Metal World
Major: Biology & Spanish
Genre/Medium: Digital Painting (Program: Procreate)
About the work: This piece showcases the initial excitement and inspiration that I felt when first learning about the Psyche mission, and the imagination that sparked because of it. I wanted to create an illustration of how Psyche might appear and showcase the asteroid’s cratered surface through the digital painting medium. I created this piece digitally using the program called Procreate. The process of creating it involved constructing several iterations of an initial sketch, then blocking in the shapes of the light and shadows, adding the color element to it, and finally further rendering anywhere that needed refining.
