IF - shadows

With this topic I had to think of the story of Peter Schlemihl who sold his shadow for a bag of gold to the devil. To make his lack of a shadow visible, I drew things with a strong shadow. I hope that my intention shows in the illustration.

  1. Your intention shows very well! This is a wonderful illustration...very atmospheric and I love the line work!

  2. This is very disturbing--with no shadow he seems to float in the air. I never thought about it before, how your shadow connects you to the earth.

  3. @coreopsis, I only realized this after publishing, but you are absolutely right.

    Maybe because of his lack of connection Peter Schlemihl became so suspicious to people that they ran away from him.
