The Eviction

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I just had this thought in my head of a short story scene or situation that I had to illustrate. There's a short piece of writing I did telling the story background, but I'm not gonna type it up here because, one, you don't want to read all that and two, it'll probably sound silly and pointless for this one pic! The simple version is that this boy is being thrown out of a place which has been his home almost since birth, by no fault of his own and no reason which he knows of. Misunderstandings and superstition on the part of people with power are what led to this event, but he knows nothing of it. All he feels is confusion. Sketched, scanned, printed, print improved with more sketching, scanned again, neatened with paint shop, colourized. I decided I didn't want a detailed background for this one, because it might take away from the subject of the drawing. Just the kind of dull red to symbolise the fear-confusion-panic feeling you get when you're not quite sure if something's gone horribly wrong, if that doesn't sound too pretentious :p
