She brings her permanently disfigured child to his first day of school. They are handicapped; it's hard to breath or eat, she fears ostracization and finger-pointing. However, she is lucky, her village supports them; another village would consider it justified retribution for ever asking for a divorce from an abusive husband.
(based on a true story www.worldpressphoto.org/collec…)

Acid attacks - throwing acid at people, to permanently maim them, because they turned down marriage and sexual advances. Or because they're in a rival gang, or have a certain religious belief - a tool used in disagreement.

You're starting to use colors much more conservatively, and only applying them where they're needed. On top of that your blending is getting phenomenal. I haven't seen the reference but the space between the boy and his mother and the other children gives it a sense of... loneliness? I can't find the word but you did a fantastic job here.

Where can we see the photo reference, out of curiosity?
