lonely city love affair by chesterocampo lonely city love affair by chesterocampo
Roxanne, you don't have to put on the red light
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night
Roxanne, you don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

--"Roxanne" by The Police

Like I said back in 2008, it has a Gibson-Neuromancer feeling to it.
Brilliant

Love the contrast of the bright city and the still, dark girl. It feels like she's in the moment before plunging into it.

LJklsfsdf I love the titles you come up for your pieces, seriously. Most of all though, I love it that you made her a silhouette, rather than putting her into detail. I think it adds to the 'story' in this piece :heart:

urban and emotional. great composition and the colors. the shading of pink on her face is a nice touch AND it's a clever, touching quote AND the name of the piece is excellent, which is even more rare. this is like all-you-can-eat buffet of creative excellence
