"Conceal" and "Concealed"
Conceal and Concealed
Conceal and Concealed started from picking two random words from the dictionary. They were Imp and Wintry. I looked up imp and found the usual demon-like creature, and that imp-ing was the act of repairing hawk wings. I decided to use each of the definitions to portray the different things men and woman are expected to keep hidden. Wintry was reflected in the pose and color choices. I also focused on using just lines to give it some movement and a little more tension.
The drawings are done with acrylic and charcoal on paper.
Side note: I thought it was pretty cool that the girl's hands look like they could also be the imp's. It added to the creepy factor.
