the route

This one is more of a test than anything else really. Most days, when I bike back and forth from work, I see my shadow on the ground and it feels like an invisible friend is riding with me. It's great feeling but hard to describe. I know I can draw the scene well enough, but the difficult aspect here is to convey more than just the ACTION that is happening.. Conveying a sense of bonding, a certain Nostalgia( I've had this feeling since I was a kid, riding my bike in the South of France) , happiness , sun etc etc. I don't think I've succeeded in what I was trying, but I've gotten somewhere....a lot like the foliage test I did a few months back and I'd like to try this again, or something similar, and come back to this one in a few month and see how I have progressed. I think these types of test are important to do as if you want to push yourself to grow as an artist and a storyteller! Anyhow..have a great day.

maybe the shadow could wave at the rider or something? If you wanted to show the friendship between them more.
Love your work.
