Quiet or Loud?

Quiet or Loud? - student project

When I started playing with the words "quiet" and "loud" I sketched out this girl immersed in literature (yes, excuse my poor sketching skills). I think the scene I choose to surround her with will determine whether this piece stays quiet or gets loud. I'm wondering if I busy background exploring the scenes of her imagination would be a nice way to make it loud? or just a textured, simple scene to keep it quiet?Quiet or Loud? - image 1 - student project
