Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the male you rises from the gray life as a female. I am thinking that what may have held you back from a first place prize was the relative simplicity of the piece: No background, all soft lines, etc.

The contrast between the gray sadness and the colorful joy is palpable. On the one hand depression, anxiety, and a withdrawal from life, and on the other, vibrant living, perhaps being alive, truly alive, for the very first time.

Had you split the girl open, it would have been the emergence of the butterfly from the pupa of femininity. On the other hand, the smoke or fog could lead to another conclusion. Is she only dreaming of the life as a man?

To me, art works best when it leaves space for the viewer (or reader) to draw their own conclusions, although within the parameters set by the artist. I am thinking that viewers of this piece would color the meaning with their own life's experiences. As I often write of transgender characters, mostly romances, I went with the happy ending of freedom from the feminine past and joy as he leaps into the future as a full blown man.
What do you think?

I saw this in the art share post and was like...this is kinda how I feel as a transman, and sure enough that was what you were going for! I dig the poses, and the black and white to color. It inspires me to do something similar <3
