Little leaf

'Little Leaf' is a 3D illustration by Ben Wakeman, inspired by a story written by Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh. The story illustrates the concept of 'emptiness', that nothing exists of its own accord, but is only a result of causation. I tried to achieve a sombre mood that would highlight the theme of impermanence, but also surreal atmosphere with the stylised colour palette. The composition and narrative style is modelled after a storybook, as I thought this would best suit the whimsical but serious theme.
