Note from Keith: This is a study in contrasts. The characters, the lighting, their moods all needed to work together, but still retain their own individuality. The hope was that the viewer would perceive the female as protecting the crown, holding it back from the young male figure to the right. They are back to back to show their opposing wills, while the other male figure is much more subdued and uncertain, as if trying to decide which of the other two is in the right. Body language can speak volumes, and if it is correct, can tell a story. That was the goal for this piece.
