Color edit! My Monitor had it's colors all messed up, too much saturation, so the real colors of this drawing were a bit dead although they seemed right here, now they are right the way they were supposed to be
it's finally done!
After a month away (Classes are finally over!), it's done.Concept!
This piece portrays a place where children go in the afterlife. Each child has it's own "afterworld", with the materialization of it's own memories and how he or she perceived the world while alive.
This is the afterworld of Kiyo, a young boy who died unexpectedly when an air raid hit his hometown. He died together with his dog Oro when they were searching for food.
The giant dog is the materialization of what Oro represented to him: a giant, magical being, with ears so big, that Kiyo thought Oro could fly. The smoke coming out of the flowers represent how he saw the whole town burnt. How trees, buildings, fields, parks, grass, everything seemed to be dead and expelling smoke.
Kiyo's father was a navy officer who fought and died in the war, having his spirit lost somewhere in the afterworld. His mother went missing and nobody, not even Kiyo, knows where she is. She may be still alive and suffering in the war, or dead and resting somewhere in the boy's paradise.
That's when his quest starts. The boy seeks to reunite with the spirits of his family in this whole new world.
He will need the help of Oro and his two new companions, Zapaan, the amalgamation of Innocence, and Pazaan, the spirit of childish mischief. With them, he will delve deep into every part of this afterworld. They will defy the Swamp Of Fears, The Valley Of Nightmares and Bogeyman's Fortress in order to finally rest in peace.
