Paid in Full

Paid in Full - student project

My goal with the project was to pose questions.  Why is the older man handing the younger man money?  Why is the building in the background burning?  Why is the man on the left keeping his hands in his pockets? I wanted to guide the viewer with the characters' eyelines... From the tallest character to the shorter character, then down to the building and money.  The sinister deed is represented by a sharp, triangular object.  With the use of sharp angles in both men I wanted to establish that they are both strong characters, but in the differences in their design I wanted to show that they are different from each other.Paid in Full - image 1 - student project

Personal notes:

Next time I should really play with perspective...
Seriously need to work on my hands!
