My rough sketches were based on the provided brief, highlighting specific things affected by COVID-19. Recently I've started constructing 3D backgrounds, especially when illustrating architectural elements or complicated layouts, in Blender to nail down the perspective and composition. With the fSpy app, I create a camera matched scene for Blender based on my sketch. After modeling, I go back to 2D and "ink" the final art in Photoshop. The color palette was based on the provided ACBJ color scheme.
