I can’t even remember the last time I painted an environment from imagination. This is actually from a dream I had last night and also it’s a real place close to where I live. I remembered it so clearly when I woke up this morning so I thought I’d sketch it real quick. I desperately needed an idea for a scene for my Schoolism assignment anyway so win win! D:

Now I need to paint it in 4 more different lighting setups which will be quite challenging and fun! (and quite time consuming *don’t panic don’t*)

Despite the loss of her legs, Li Juhong has been a doctor in her Chinese village since 2001.

Li lost her legs when she was 4 years old, on her way to preschool. She ran into the road and got caught under the wheels of a truck.

Since her accident she has been determined to remain mobile, and she learned to walk again using wooden stools. Growing up, Li had always wanted to be a doctor, so she left her village to get a degree in medicine, graduated from college, and was hired at the village clinic a year later.

She later married a man named Xing from her hometown. He quit his job to help around the house, and he carries Li to jobs when she isn’t able to travel by herself. Xing even carries Li on his back to neighboring villages so she can check up on the elderly or people who are unable to travel to her.

“I just did what I felt I had to do. Even if I’m not honored for my work, I would still continue to do my job as a rural doctor.”
