Duck of a Different Color

I've always been fascinated with depth of field. How you can take a single picture, shift what's in focus and tell multiple stories.

This is concept art for a children's book called Duck of a Different Color. I wanted to blur the foreground and backgrounds to help focus the viewers attention on the main characters: Drake the duck and Chance the chicken.
