Lyra Apollina lives in the modern day world. I really wanted to show the large gap in their worlds not only through their clothing but in their mindsets as well. The dynamic between the characters is one of the most important things in the story, I think.
Rosamund is also a few years older than Lyra in human years and 100+ years older.
Their age difference will play a part in their relationship as well but I didn’t really get to tackle these aspects of the story within the digital paintings. Rather, I explored the meanings of the different phases of the moon and how it relates to Rosamund and her friendship with Lyra.
