I like the feeling of this piece. However, I really think the kid needs to be a stronger focal point. I didn't even see him (her?) upon first glance.

I agree with you that the kid drowns in the background, but when I noticed that happening, it was already too late to correct without messing the building behind. :/

Wow, this is really cool. Kinda reminds me of Eponine's solo from Les Miserables, "On My Own," when she talks about walking alone at night when everyone else is asleep.
Very beautiful, rather dreamlike. Definitely going in my faves.

So beautiful. The colors, the shades, the lines, everything is so beautiful and reflexive. A little bit sad, yet, is this very sadness that brings about the magic. huhuhu. Congratulations.

It is a truly amazing piece. The soft colours remind me of that hazy tiredness when you want to sleep, but are troubled with it. The city seems like it has so much vibrant energy with that brightness, while it is all being contained by the wall that to me is as if the night sky has no stars. The companion is like that nagging reminder that you do have to sleep eventually no matter how long you ignore him. I love it. (:
