This piece goal's was to illustrate with a single image the long (and tiring?) journey of a rower, alone. We could guess she's probably lost and desesperate in this vagueness sea at sunset accentuated by these dull colors...
Goals : get the "silhouette lighting" of the character and find a continuity composition linking the character and the sun (her stick), get to feel the solitude
Credits: CGtrader (3d character model).
