The Circular Ruins

The final project for illustration 1 was to create four illustrations for a story called "The Circular Ruins." The story seemed to me like a mashup of Frankenstein, Indiana Jones and Inception. I can see the cinematic influences in these pieces. During crit, what I learned most from these pieces is that I need to learn how to better contrast my warm and cool colors and that most people seem to prefer simple flat colors than my attempts at rendering and lighting.

  1. Mariachis? Why? Borges was not even mexican, he was argentinian, and the story probably happens somewhere in Iran or the Mediterranean not in a stereotypical mayan-tiki--tropical jungle
