Child of Light is a video game developed by Ubisoft. You play as Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars kept by the mysterious Queen. The game is heart warming and wrenching and is accompanied with beautiful music composed by Cœur de pirate. It comes along with Nostalgia and innocence of childhood. The game itself has elements of water colour which I love and it inspired me to do my own take on Aurora using ink and water colour.
Using the pencil line as a guide, I used ink to highlight the facial features. I didn’t highlight the hair because
I wanted it to appear soft and floaty, similar to how it appears in the game. I tried to keep the eyes light in
colour and exaggerated the pupils to give her a look of purity, the whites in her eyes have pink tints because I wanted her to express melancholy.
