Dance Me To The End of Love

ART 283 Seminar and Project – Digital Illustration

For this assignment, we were to create a narrative illustration to song lyrics. From the list provided I chose Dance Me to the End of Love by Leonard Cohen. If you research further into the song it explores darker themes, specifically regarding the Holocaust. My direction was to go with a moody feel which I accomplished using cool colors in a seemingly nighttime setting. I used several gradient meshes to create a flame effect and shading the violin.
