Well, this caused me no end of trouble, mainly because I’ve never tried to do anything like this. My usual style is flatter and more abstract, so I really had to think about how I was going to approach it. It definitely took me out of my comfort zone.
I deliberately kept the children’s faces out of view because I wanted the viewer to think about who the aggressor is in the picture. Are they attacking or defending? I hope it’s a bit of a spin on the usual childhood monsters trope.
