WIP 5 piece portrait

this series explores the transgender transformation from a man to a woman. i utilized facial features, color, and emotion to express full transition of body and mind. inspired by chaz bono, i wanted to show that because of medical micacles, the people trapped in the wrong body can be happy. 

i feel bono experienced wrongful discrimination; religious groups boycotted the show, children were told this transformation is wrong. however, everyone deserves happiness and it cannot be achieved until we as humans as content in our own skins. 

this is an incomplete series, two drawings are left (stage 4 and 5) are left.
