A comic I recently did for a competition~
Set in 18th century, about two opera singers- one whose given up and another whose ready to be the best.
For a while I've wanted to do something about someone playing the role of 'Cheribino' from Marriage of Figaro, a boy character who is normally played by a girl (due to the soprano voice), and ends up cross dressing as a girl for half of the opera. I wanted my own opera singer character to explore their gender through their role as Cheribino. I guess this is kind of a short version of that idea, although this one is more about respect rather then gender.
I'm pretty sure if I was gonna win the competition, I would have been contacted by now. So I'm uploading it finally :3 I was really pleased with how it came out visually, so I wanted to show/print as soon as I thought I was allowed ^^
