This was part of the print artwork set for Cian. This lost to “Cian’s Depression” in a poll.
I wanted to capture Cian’s depression here, similar to the headshot. The way he is alone in the room, holding his shoulder, looking down and depressed, the way his leg is over the other…I wanted everything about him to say “I’m depressed”. I think it worked.
I don’t know what room he is in, other than it’s somewhere in Hadley’s mansion. It’s not the library/study area though – I don’t think I had that established when I was making this piece. That was something I learned of as I spent more time with his character. Heck, I think I didn’t even have him writing in a journal all the time established by this point. If I did, I think it would have been present!
I like the basic concept of this piece a lot.
