I had been working on this for almost 2 weeks, not sure why it took me so long to finish aside that I was changing home again..., but the truth is that progress was very slow until like 3 days ago when suddenly I finally got focused on it and most creative ideas I wasn't getting previously came to me and all fit nicely for the Final version.

The idea behind this piece is the stages of lives from a baby, going into childhood carefree with no worries, then adolescence and depression, to young adulthood establishing goals and working toward them and finally Mature age reaping benefits of all the hard work.

It was commissioned to me by someone to use it as banner for his facebook profile, although the version for him is slightly different than the one I'm showing here, which I modified later one for my own.

Technical Info:
Digital Vector Art
Created with Adobe Illustrator CC2015.
Took me approx. 2 weeks with lots of interruptions and breaks

Qué bonito ha quedado, @melooo182! Pensamos que ha valido la pena el tiempo que te ha tomado hacer este diseño, es fresco y cuenta por sí solo la historia de la vida. Nos gustan los colores que has usado y el mensaje que quieres dar.

Maravilloso, como siempre❤️

Love the idea :D And it is well illustrated with this piece, for sure ! The stages of life !

Sometimes, some works take a bit of time before they kinda come together, so I can relate well with how long this one had taken the time with you, melo :) It's just life and our creative juices, I think. As artists, we have to listen to our inner muses, and also we have to find that place where both our physical energy and our mental energies meet together, if you know what i mean?

Very nice piece, melo! i really like the animated gif you included here <3


Spoody!!! <3 thanks for such nice comment, yeah is weird how the brain keeps processing stuff after you think you're done with it and suddenly comes up with an idea that's better than anything you come with before and Bam it makes all fit nicely :3

Unique way of expression! creative~ Life goes like that. You symbolized life as a painting. Good work. Thank you ~~


Thank you!! @trueimagine!!! :D
