I wanted to hop in here, I know Nox already talked about the fact that the silhouettes were hand drawn, but for for an idea of how we work these derbies - here's a good illustration.
I'm (Py) actually from Lake CDA (the lake that the picture is based on). I have TONS of pictures of sunsets up here. So I took my faves - about 6 in total - and sent them to Nox for color, cloud, and style inspiration. Then, I wrote out exactly what I saw in my head - Lake, silhouetted figures and trees, cloudy, wild sky sunset in the background.
She takes those images and my description and turns them into a submission. Throughout the process we go in and change things, make small tweaks, etc. But everything she does in hand drawn and colored.
Hope that helps.
