A little peace of fan art for the game République For iOS. The game was created by Camouflage and Directed by Ryan Payton ( known for his work on Metal Gear Solid 4 and Halo 4)
For this piece I wanted to give the feeling of "hope", that the Manifesto "Hope" clings to is the key to her salvation. The border represents the surveillance systems of Metamorphosis. We are watching her as she is at rest, almost in the same way a parent watches over a child sleeping as they cling to a teddy bear or plush. As the viewer we are either her oppressor or savior. In a way the piece can be read as before or after she realizes that Metamorphosis and the overseer are a lie. Even after she knows the truth she still looks to a manifesto for answers. Whether it be the one changed by Zeger or the one she was originally given.
