This is the first of probably many concepts. This is indeed a challenge. I keep thinking of all the spectacular images I've seen in my lifetime and I keep wondering what could I do that is comparable much less fit the 2D medium well.

The idea here is that there is nothing left. This image shows a woman with her toe touching the edge of some sort of ledge. She's leaning back (think about the moment you're leaning back on a bar stool and you get that adrenaline rush when you start to fall.) Below her is a city.

Here's two scenarios, the first is depicted in the image (badly) Think nuclear explosion and the buildings being torn apart below as fire rushes through the streets. Parts are flying through the sky.

The second scenario just takes the raw feeling of depth and the sheer height. The reason I am throwing this second scenario at you is because on first thought I believe the nuclear blast is just too much.

Ok, so here's a better defined version. Still sketchy but I'm testing the proverbial waters.

Nice to see you again, hmm falling and explosion, can you describe how relate of these two scenario? When I see this pic I think about "up and down" concept. Contrast can make the feeling like light and shadow.

Waiting for next step.:buttrock:

Correct me if I'm wrong in how I'm answering this but I believe the answer you're looking for lays in the relation to a possible suicide and an explosion that would take her life anyway. Of course there is a few ideas that could spawn from this concept such as the idea that suicide is so destructive that her world (the city) is being ripped apart or that she's a thrill seeker and she feels falling from the building is the only thing she hasn't done but because there is absolutely nothing left and she is going to die anyway she'll take her chances with the ground. The interpretation of the picture is of course up to the viewer but I think I'm leaving the interpretation pretty open.
