Ah~ I did just read your passionate journal entry
I'm surprised you bothered to look into it even on dA. And I'm also surprised there's only one tribute!
Perhaps I will rework this one. Thank you for seeing the meaning in the image.
Like you, I read up on the incidents. The Bulger one in particular was very disturbing, and gave me very confused emotions. I've always thought children to be innocent (like most people I suppose), but I also know that sometimes children brought up in a 'bad' environment will also end up 'bad'. So it was a case of trying to see how/why they became killers. Personally I think as children, Venables and Thompson had no clue about the morality of humans (they didn't know how to feel it perhaps). That is to say they didn't realise being dead/causing death was such a big deal, death happens often enough I guess...
The image I was trying to portray was subjective. You can see it anyway you want to. The way I choose to see it was that they, as children, were clueless. Especially poor James. Walking on the tracks, they fail to acknowledge the thing that will soon ruin their lives (or in Jame's case, take away).
I would like to re-work Jame's face and render the clothes of the two other boys better.
Thank you again for taking the time to comment. And sorry for my ramblings!
