Update on April 15 - Hillman

Greetings. Hope everyone is doing well.
I have been thinking about my subject for the five drawings. It turns out a lot of my focus was on the change in balance between the natural word and human life. Therefore, I would devote this project to mainly depicting absurd impact from inevitable change to some animals. 

To open up my topic, I want to relate an artificial world with the subject I am going into. This illustration I draw inspired from Isabelle in Animal Crossing would function as a bridge between leisure hours with the cruel reality others are going through. Moreover, Isabelle in the game takes up the role of city governor. Songs, flags, urban planning are all executed through Isabelle’s suggestion. Thus, for those who are familiar with the game, it would be spontaneous to relate such a positive image with political leaders who are making the right decisions, spreading love, energy and hope. In this drawing, I also applied some warm light in contrast to cooler background, in order to give a heroic atmosphere to elevate this particular moment. My next images would be pet forced to wear masks, so this image of a masked Isabelle will guide my audience from a purely artificial setup to reality. 
For the rest of the drawings, I will first have pets on mask, then mice in college dorm (probably also wearing masks), wild life on the streets, and finally, a closing piece that draws previous elements together.

  1. Excellent Hillman! Please make sure that the images are high resolution so that when I print them out they'll be nice and crisp. If you have questions about this let me know and we can figure it out.
