'Where I Live' final

This is the first piece I created completely on Illustrator. I did a rough sketch in my sketchbook first and placed the photo of it onto the canvas to let myself know where everything should be.

I used the pen tool and brush tool to draw myself; live-traced the floating objects and used shapes to give the image some motion and energy.

There is a variety of colours throughout the image, and I deliberately lowered the opacity of the circles to match the muted tones of the objects. I changed the background to light brown for the same reason and I think the elements work well together.
