My brother at 5’7" , playing at the arcade next to my sig other at 6’9" tall. It really made me laugh to stand back and really SEE the size difference.
This was a special day…the day my husband, then boyfriend, went from being " that guy Erin is dafting" to “my friend”.
I have done things with selective coloring in the past, but this is my first attempt at the reverse of that…and for some reason , the selective black and white is far more complicated in terms of making it "feel " right. maybe it’s all in my head , but at least that’s how I felt while working with the image.
I just felt that making the riders black and white made for a more interesting commentary on how when virtual gaming, we just sort of fade into the world in which we’re playing.
