I think this is one of the best compositions I’ve ever done. It incorporates a lot of my favorite aspects of composition: near symmetry, abstracted and geometric background, realistic portrait painting, and splashes of vivid color in a mainly dark or desaturated image. This piece is based on the novel Skyward, and it was originally meant to be a quick joke sketch based on the idea that the main character of Skyward would be a Lightweaver if she was part of the Stormlight Archive novels. The starfighter’s design is based on the Lightweaver symbol. But I loved the composition so much that it turned into a full painting.
