Illustration on paper is something which requires mindfulness. You have to be true to the reference which you’re illustrating. Reproducing the details, the highlights, the reflections, the shadows is not just plain copying. Only after understanding the distance, shape and the interaction which the background has with the reflective surface, can we reproduce the detail true to the reference. The contrast and perspective also play a big role to make the object visibly dramatic, and convey the emotion. My first try at illustration- an exercise in mindfulness.
