The aim was to illustrate a concept of stepping back to create a space for a better perspective on own decision making. The subject are feet stepping back.
I chose a low, back view reference to create a dynamic perspective and lighter values to later use the outline of the subject to describe the step rather than the feet themselves.
I went through some ideas of lettering to enhance the composition.
I decided to use the perspective and light from the front of the subject that creates cast shadows falling back (to the foreground of the image) which I done digitally, but later I added one more version with watercolor grass element to add some tangible texture and colour.
