War Within is a piece dedicated to the daily inner conflict the human sinner goes through. As the word of God clearly states with all authority that we have all fallen short of the Glory of God, and wonder this world as lost sheep in his merciful care. I focused on capturing some glimpses of the monsters that lie deep inside trying to rip their way out. It is a piece composed of self portraits twisted into these manifestations. I chose to leave it slightly rough and expressive to resemble that of almost a dream.
This is my entry to the "Think Pink V Contest" Category: Digital Painting-Airbrushing/Drawing
As for the pose I used as reference an image I found on a photo CD a friend gave me. For visage and expression, I took inspiration from a Kay O'Hara's photo I already used for this piece [link] some years ago. Kay is one of my favorite models, sure the one I did more pieces on. She is not only beautiful, but also she's a very lovely person... Look at her websėte [link]
So this is my first entry to the Think Pink lV contest(traditional category), started by I wanted something light soft and delicate to symbolise this frailness of the illness, yet this strength it takes when you go through cancer. I am not completely satisfied with the result because I made the decision to add some harder lines of darkness and frankly it took away the thing I liked about it in the beginning. I was hoping it would give it a bit more depth. I am however working on my original entry for the contest and will add both.
I encourage everyone to take part in this and support a good cause By the way, I am donating a little something for my shop for one of the winners
I REALLY like Dr. Pepper. So this contest is a win for me no matter what the outcome, lol. But yeah, this is the completely non-fictional story of me and my buddies blasting off in our D-Pep fueled rocketship/bottlecap/lawnchair contraptions. Goooood times...
I might go back and do some touch-ups eventually since the deadline is so far away, haha. I can do that right? Edit this entry? o.O
Edit: made some minor changes thanks to the helpful posts below.^^ And special credit to *sdl for the help with the actual fluid.
