I tried multiple technique for lighting here. Most of wich I read about in Jame gurvey book ''Color and light'' wish is a great read I advice it to any artist. You have a reverse atmospheric perspective to contrast with the blue light of electric light. Most importantly I tried to do a photographic ''contre jour'' I'm sorry I do not know the term in english but this is basically what happen when you have a source of light directly behind the object. This was to isolate the primary subject.
Yes this is a social commentary , and it was quite a challenge to me even through it was a emotional roaller coaster. So I would like to thank jazza for this competion because for me it allowed me to get closer to my art goal of emotional story telling with illustration.
I hope you all enjoy it , Do not hesitate to tell me in the comment what you think is happening in this picture and what you feel viewing it as it greatly help me evolve my skills.
