Combination Therapy

My first couple of months of "combination therapy" felt like I was sinking deep.
I remember my family taking the dog for a walk, the sun light came streaming through the open door.
I was aware of them but knew it was impossible for me to reach them through the fog of medication.

Sinking below

The idea was to create an underwater scene to represent the sinking feeling I got as the world started to blur during medication. The gradients don't show so well in the compressed images used online. 


At the top of the water, out of reach, is my family preparing to walk the dog. The dog is based on our dog Jax surrounded by my immediate family members. 

Out of Reach

I wanted to show the sense of sinking and chose a first person perspective to illustrate this with my hands reaching out to my family above.

Illuminated Exit

Finally I wanted the open door to the outside world as an exit from the scene. This would be illuminated by sunlight and provide the main light source for the scene.
