Daily Deviation

Given 2009-06-08
" An accurate depiction of those we know as "good" will sometimes commit unspeakable acts in their quest to eliminate "evil." When I saw this for the first time, it was as if the picture itself was asking "Who would you help in this, and why"; I still have not decided. "

@ "(v) must not be harassing, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, profane, obscene, excessively violent, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable or offensive in any way, as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion;"

I read that and laughed because it looks like this covers almost all those bases...lol. Not that I mind, I think it a rather insightful piece. The look of indifference on the "angel's" face as she's about to pulverize the other, as if it's just an everyday thing. This does illustrate, in my opinion, the way a lot of people go about flaunting their beliefs, religious or otherwise.

An accurate representation of religion in general promising salvation but delivering suffering and injustice upon the so called heathens. In the end religion is hypocrisy in it's purest form and that is why i'm an athiest.

Job well done ^^

I don't find this offensive at all, but I love angels.

Amazing work with the contrast with expression and pose in the two characters. I love the feeling of absolute justification in the attacker's face.

For me this drives home an ideal I've always lived by. There are no good or evil people, only good and evil actions.

Not only are the aesthetics very appealing, and the art wonderfully drawn, but the concept is incredible and powerful. It really puts the ideas of "purity," "justice," "right," and "wrong" into perspective. Absolutely phenomenal work~
Congratulations on the DD, it was well deserved!

Whoa nice pic. It speaks of many things. One that comes to mind is that the Angel may be delighting in this a little too much. :clap: :iconbravoplz:

I agree with the DD. Only I'll add this. It seems to me in my own personal opinion that it reflects people's feelings towards these icons. Good seems to be ever more controlling and unreasonable with being overly zealous to a point of corruption in their tasks and people seem to be sympathizing with perhaps the wrong side because of it.

her smile is creepy. i can't explain it. it's like her intentions are so good, it's evil. ya know that? i like it just a bit too sexy for my liking. this would've been killer if they weren't too anime-ish.

Wow what a concept. This kind of reminds me of something I saw in a Dan Brown book. It basically pointed out how lets say side a and side B are going to battle. Side A prays and gets the angels on their side, they go to battle and are victorious. Now swap to side B. They don't think those things helping the other side were angels they would call them demons. That, like this picture, really made me pause and think about it for a while.

Still, great concept, and great art. I especially like the way you've used the color transition- being bright colors from the angel's spot, to the darker color for the devil. And on a personal note, i think its remarkable how you make your work. I mean, it looks like rough sketches for the lineart, but the final output is so refined, and completely...well... complete. Do you do your work on photoshop?
