How did you make this work:
'The Importance of Sadness' is inspired by PT's article "Why is good to be sad". I wanted to show that, from sadness, something good comes come out at the end. I focused on showing pain and calmness, sorrow and comfort. I used strong colour contrasts, simple main motifs and tiny details that pull the observer in. It's made in Procreate.
