Editorial Illustration and Art Directing: “Did Humans kill off the Hobbits?”

As the article was focused on the struggle of H. Floresiensis against the taller, and eventually victorious H. Sapiens, I decided to direct my chosen idea towards this more.

Although it is potentially unclear in the final images, I have given the 2 cavemen black eyes, with the intention of a hidden narrative of they have been physically fighting for survival against each other .

From the comments I received, it is apparent that the brown version is more effective than the gray-scaled version. The stylistic use of white to highlight areas of the image was commented to be “professional” and adds a tone of sophistication to an otherwise simple and “cartoon-like” image.
