Two sides of the same coin

This illustration started of as a pencil sketch while I was travelling in Singapore with a childhood friend. While we were exploring together, I began to realise that our interests are not similar like before.

This became the idea for this piece, as time change people change and from the same become opposite like a flip of a coin.

The feeling of the sketch really resonates with what I was feeling so I wanted to work on it further and turn is into a painting. I scanned the sketch and then used Photoshop to colour digitally. I tried to have the painting look as close to the loose, traditional media as possible.
