Longing - student project

I tried to viusalize the feeling of longing. The boy is longing for a better world. I wanted him to be the focus, so I gave him the biggest contrast, and some of the lines is pointing towards him and the photo he is holding. The shapes I made hard where the present world is and more round and softer where the better, safer future would be. I'll work more on this later and I think the boy should look into the distance instead of at the photo.

Any feedback is much appreciated!
