The Blue Quarter
Shoved aside from the rest of the city, the Blue Quarter is the “scummy” corner of ____ Port where the poor, diseased, cyborgs, and all whom the League deem unpure congregate. The Blue Quarter is named after the caustic appearance of its land. The earth has turned an acidic blue from pollution and chemical reactions due to the negligent care of the city’s original energy reactors and mining facilities. Its inhabitants are not allowed to leave the quarter without first obtaining an appropriate pass.
Working on this illustration was a roller coaster ride of hate and love. For one, I’m happy with the comp, and the little back story behind the location - yet, I struggled so much while painting it and for the longest time thought about adding this to the pile of unfinished failures. In the end, I kept at it - slowly, for sure - and eventually I think it turned around.
Had the opportunity of meeting some Trigger members last year and wanted to do a piece to thank everyone at the studio for making such an awesome show! looking forward to some more KLK and Little Witch Academia
