Final for Advanced Drawing class

The assignment was to take a composition that already exists and adapt it to a new drawing. I chose Broken Eggs by John-Baptiste Greuze which shows an old lady being upset at this young girl for having lost her virginity. In my drawing a skanky girl is upset by the burden of having to take care of an aging and a mentally deficient person to show the changes in our society's values over time. One of Stephen Gaffney's comments was that elements of it reminded him of Vermeer's sleeping girl, which I didn't have in mind when doing this but I do love Vermeer-eroo.
