Lonely one....

Here's my take on this week's jam, started as a simple concept to sketch, wanted to see some color on it, so i did a quick paint up. Will redo it later, I stretched the "big city" part and flipped it, but hope I still stayed in the parameters of the theme. :)

i love the fele of this image a lot. in fact it evokes a certain level of emotion as intended. as for the topic for the week, i think it coudl have been pushed more. A play with perpective etc, could have been explored. i will say though it was clever how u worked the image in the end . where are those other sketches u said u were going to post =)? im waiting....

Thanks, I was trying to decided how I wanted to make the city a character too, without focusing too much on the person in the sketch, and still tell a story. I agree, it can be pushed more, it will be.

Oh I didn't forget... My original sketch for the fan art jam was a couple Omega Red sketchs, but I didn't like it any of them once I finished, so I never posted.. But i'll throw one up today anyway.

Like I said, the color image in the end really kicked this piece out. I like the reflection of the buildings on homegirl. I think the loniness really comes through by making her pregnant and the way you have one hand on the belly and one on the window.

I hope she isn't lonely for long.

Yo this is an excellent idea! The emotion is very well displayed. home girl is lonely missing the baby's father. and it was a cool idea to show the the city in the reflection. I think your drawing suffers from a few techincal problems but i think its a very creative and expressive effort
