The Perfect World In Comparison

I designed this piece to show that the perfect world is only in their mind. This is not how they see the world. They are not in a blissful ignorance, it is just a dream.

I designed the character to be somewhat gender neutral. Although, the lips turned out rather feminine, and the nose turned out quite masculine, I quite like how it looks.

I decided to do a digital version of the city in the eye.

After doing the original eye design, I decided to do an eye of what the world is really like: Discrimination, Poverty, Money, Oil, War, Religion, and Police Brutality/Crime.

 

After this, I decided to do a short story to accompany my work in a form of explaining my thought process. Here are some of my photographs which I edited and used to illustrate the short story:

The edits I did to this image was 1. Cropping it; 2. making the image black and white; 3. adding the numbers to the arm.

The edits on this one was just making the background look slightly cloudy, instead of being block black. I wanted a new texture/tone to the image.

And here is the cover for the short story. The first two chapters are now on Wattpad. You can click the image to read it.
