A few months ago I was commissioned by an author to paint the cover of her new book. It was supposed to be "two people, one face" and give a vibe of "we are all the same" but still be realistic. I started painting my actual thoughts so I tried doing a facial structure that is "almost" identical but when halved you can see a difference; the difference being that skin color is just an illusion. By us halving it and looking for the difference shows that only when people truly look for one then they see a difference between us. I never got to finish because it started getting too realistic for the publishers so I scrapped this painting. I'll share where I stopped though and call it finished because it shows what I wanted to portray.
