Child Lora'n Kika by gunnmgally Child Lora'n Kika by gunnmgally
"There I saw Kika's red dress."


this's the typical interior of Tongzilong back in 1980's.
most of them were school buildings, rehabitated as apartments mainly for small families.
no private bathroom or kitchen. everyone have to share the public bathroom as the end of floor and also the self-built stoves in the corridor.

this was where Lora and Kika used to live. when they still had their family and their trust.

The emotion in this painting is so powerful. The red dress among all these dull colors reminds me of the girl in the red dress in Schindler's List. :)

A touch of history and there is always something about a girl in red in a desolation-esque world I find striking. Of course to people back then that was the norm, heck I'm sure to some it's still the norm.

Right, enough mumbling.

Amazing job.

the red on her dress is my FAVORITE. i really wish i could draw characters naturally in fitting backgrounds the way you do. there is a faint happiness in the way that she moves, but i think that overall, this is a very dark picture *_*

I can't even begin to express how much I love this piece of work.

I also can't help but notice that you have many wonderful Chinese references scattered across your artworks :) I especially love the one where the speech bubbles had cute chinese writing in them :)
