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!

"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
