Good vs. Evil by Sugargrl14 Good vs. Evil by Sugargrl14
This is for this contest: [link]

My version of Good vs. Evil. I wanted it to be more than just an inner conflict so I added a few more elements. The plant, which is held by the good side, symbolizes life. While the fire held by the evil side, symbolizes death. The fire is seeping through the hand, threatening life. Also, it means something else to me, but I let you guys think about that. A little mystery...

I'm really happy with how it turned out. I put my best effort into it and I hope that shows. It's my second time drawing wings and I hope they look good.

A big thanks to my sister, who modeled for this. Her dA page is here: [link]

I hope you guys like it. And good luck to everyone else who is entering this contest!

Tools used: Photoshop CS3 and Wacom Intuos3 tablet.
Around 25+ hours.

Download for larger image.
EDIT: Fixed a few things, added some more detail to the wings. I'll probably be editing this every so often.
EDIT 2: Fixed some more things, including the fire.

:star: Some more info about the image - when I said it meant something else to me, here it is: Evil isn't always evil, like the fire. And good isn't always good. That's why this image isn't clear cut, there's a smooth transition between the two. I hope that explains some more about it!

Well the fire keeps the plant warm, while the plant reaches for the skies.  The fire is essentially the core of the planet our need for warmth, the plant is us as we are and we are trying to the skies.  This is my interpenetration and of course the yin yang effect.  Great piece.

 I did message her to tell her I edited it she never said anything back and I did credit her. I used it for a project that I had to hurry on for school. I see nothing wrong with crediting and showing off the simple edits I put to it this is a wonderful drawing and I wish I could draw just as good but I cant. I will stick to my editing and I do tell the owners (if I know who made them) that I have edited them and posted them on my page. I see nothing wrong with that.

"You must see with eyes unclouded by hate. See the good in that which is evil, and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two."

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mentalhospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all thestaff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her sothey set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong themachine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, ona Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting youand watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, andshe will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and pastethis to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.Youwill either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in youReply

This is a breathtaking piece of artwork that you've done, I love how you were able to mix these to polar opposites so well, that most would often fail at. Very well done

This is a very nice image. The use of light and contrast is very well done. The wings look great for a second time drawing wings, and as with all things, the more you do it the better you'll become. I really like this picture.
