Street Urchin / by Giovanni Nakpil

I've always had an idea in my head about a group of very young kids getting into all sorts of danger in the slums of some futuristic world (ala "Tekkonkinkreet"). I think I was subconsciously riffing off young Christian Bale from "Empire of the Sun" with this one. I wanted to create a very young boy who looks and feels old due to having to grow up pretty quickly in order to survive the slums. I'll definitely take this one all the way to face shapes and perhaps even animation.
