This is an illustration of my lovely Finnish friend Ida, who is also in my class and an astounding illustrator. This is my first real attempt at a background, I’ve never really tried them in such detail before. I think it gives more body to the main image, though I do think it looks a little busy. But I will definitely try to do more in the future. I tried to make it look like a picturesque scene from Finland. As for Ida, I added some daisies to her hair to add to its movement.
