The Lonely Boy!

The jam this week was to create a lonely person in the Big City theme. I took a stab at it. This was a quick sketch on notebook paper and then I colored it in photoshop. Let me know what you think the story is. Is the little boy sad because he doesn't have a family that loves him like this little girl is being loved? Is he lonely because of another reason? It's however you want to interpret it.

I was trying to keep it rough. Didn't have much time to do this so I hope you like it. Special thanks to Vanya for modeling her attire for me!

Nice overall, though it looks like the little one has taken a detour to the suburbs rather than being engulfed in the big city. . .

Also, the father looks like he has female hips and is wearing a denim skirt. . .Other than that, it's great. :D

The dad has female hips? LOL! If that is the boy's dad then I think I know why he's sad!

Actually, I went back and looked at it. The dad's hip is like that because he is stepping towards the camera. No reference so it's kind of a crazy position.

I wanted the entire image to be grittier in my original thoughts but it seemed to go in it's own direction. Thanks for the feedback my people!

That is why I wasn't really happy with this. I had a real grimy/lonely image in mind and for some reason it went another direction. It was gonna be more realistic than cartoony but for now it is what it is. MAybe next time. Haha!
