Recently my personal life has been pretty messy as I went through a rollercoaster phase of stress and depression, I think it’s a perfect timing for me to develop therapeutic art pieces like this. The concept is basically a “personal recovery” reflection, I think from the self care process, my mental health and realization of self love healing through a form of waves. Therefore, I used wavelike elements and little circles as I found them very cute and healing.

I mainly used digital drawing on Procreate, I used “airbrush” to draw the breathable light texture background and I used a vintage brush called campagnia to draw the intricate and strong touches of linework. I chose six different color palettes based on my own aesthetics as I found “therapeutic” and “healing” and using liquify tool to create the waves element at the background.
