Loss by AlexMyung Loss by AlexMyung
Some character concept art for my next film. It was supposed to just be a stand alone piece but it slowly evolved into more than that. I haven't done a full digital painting in a while so it was nice getting to do this. I was inspired by Satoshi Kon's portraits; they're just so hauntingly beautiful.

"Arrival" is about a boy struggling with the decision to come out to his mother. Instead of confronting his problems, he chooses to push away the ones he loves most.

our Kickstarter was successfully funded on 2/20/13!!! Thank you to all of you who donated and spread the word! we raised over $20k!!

However, If you would still like to donate, please check out the official :star: Arrival Production blog here!:star:


You can donate through paypal or just check out the film itself! I'll be updating at least twice a week. Like us on FB too! [link]

Her expression holds painstaking longing and sorrow, and her hair... is absolutely marvelous, just marvelous. The lighting and shadows, this whole piece is amazing.
