Inspiration for this projet is “The Elves and the Shoemaker”
some ideas :
The first image I was playing with gravity , mainly inspired by M.C. Escher ( Relativity)
The second one is inspired by the story “The Elves and the Shoemaker” and labor abuse.
I decided to take the second image and go from there (work in progress)
added brown color to the boot and sketched small men .
