Birgit-2 by BeatrizMartinVidal Birgit-2 by BeatrizMartinVidal
This is one of the illustrations for "Birgit", a novel about death. It's told by a little girl whose sister is dying. I uploaded the cover some months ago, but I forgot to upload some of the inner illustrations, so here it is. The novel is very realistic so I tried the illustrations weren't. The progress of the illness is symbolized by the flowers invading the girl. Even if the approach is pretty poetic it was pretty hard to do. I didn't want the images were soft or sweet. I was doing well, but somehow, at the middle of the work a kind of somber mood touched me. Even so, this book is among the works I'm more proud of.

Pencil, pastel and gouache + a touch of digital adjust

Wow, beautiful, sweet innocence. A child cannot hold back such raw emotion, we adults learn to mask it as we grow...such a waste, when you see the solemn beauty, dignified, unwavering heartache in this piece. Bravo!
