This artwork is based on cities being modern day islands where the roads do not connect but instead segregates them. The sharp contrast of girls in rural areas and their "transformation" to their urban selves is also explored. Why is fashion so important in a hostile environment? I wanted to colour it digitally but colour penciling turned out quite fun! i'm not very trilled with the outcome as the colours are not as bright as i would like and the composition is a bit wishy washy. Please comment as i would like to know what you guys think!

This is a really wonderful piece, but I do feel like some bad things happened to it in the documentation process. The skin especially seems like it's been a bit flattened by color correction, though that may be my imagination. I do think the composition works pretty damned well- I suppose that the lowest figure could stand to be moved a bit more into the picture plane (just because at the moment the foreheads of the top and bottom figures line up along a vertical axis in a way that seems weird to me as a viewer), but it's not something I noticed as a problem until I saw your comment and focused on the composition more critically.

yeah, i really hate putting colour pencil artworks through the scanner coz it warps everything. Thanks for your detailed comment! the piece does look different in real life.
