I’ve just started adding the details to the illustration arranging the color and the brightness checking the entire image. I chosed the gold color (I’ll fix it later) for the main part of the wings leaving the rest to silver. The color inspiration, black and gold, actually came from Madonna’s NFL SUPER BOWL performance in 2012. It’s quite interesting to see how some inspiration come from the most unexpected direction. Actually, from my observation, that was the performance inspired by Norse mythology. So I thought, “OK, I can make this as a part of Norse mythology, Edda”.

Madonna’s influence stretches far and wide! Another layer in the ongoing step by step walk-through of Kazuhide Ichikawa’s process on Tumblr.
