,Edit Now the judging is over I got to work on this a lot more and with all the critiques given in mind and the sense of wanting it to be really 'me', with a lot more painting, adding of objects and the nitty-gritty details I love so much this work has been 'revamped'.

So now we also have "Cats in hats with goldfish 'bling', tiger mice and tiger parrots, sofas with paws and women with claws, the invention of 'Strapples' and flowers I adore."

Anyway I hope you like this one :D





Inspired by my own little ball of fur who likes to act like there's a big cat inside her, but actually surviving in the wild is not her style .... really she's the 'Lady of the Manor'. The over all look was Rococo/Baroque pin-up fantasy inspired with some Japanese style mixed in.

Photo manipulated with much digital painting.

My own face and body parts used as well as a reference for painting the body pose.

Together by blood and love,
That evil is united with the good,
and the good with the evil
Both have their purposes,
Opposites of one another, but always united in the balance,
Depends on the good of evil to exist,
How the bad depends on the good to exist,
Between the two there is a difference that seems to separate
But the reason and the reality and keeps them together,
both dance within the lives of mortals,
Those mortal that can sin, save,
And die depending on his actions ...


. By Hector Zepeda


This is my entry for Good and evil contest!!
and its i think for now, my most elaborated and detailed work until now. i spend like a week working hard on this work, and i really like how it ends.

My interpretation of the theme its that good and evil really dont exist, and depends of the subject, people cant notice good things without evil things, so they needs each other to survive.

Symbolism:

The guy its evil the girl its good: its obvious, usually a male figure its asociated with the violent impulses and brutal strong, instead the women its more asociated with patience and love.

they both represent human concience, deciding what act to do... to go to the plenity of the medows or go trough the darkness in the forest, good and bad acts, that in the end will have their consecuences.

in the fact that they both, cant exist without each other, i painted them with like a wedding clothes, like a team instead of being enemys.

I choose the color purple for the theme, cause in a very dark tone can be horrorific and sad, and in a very light tone can be cute and clean!, for me goes great with the theme!

the symbol on the horse (The Sun and Moon united) means the union of the oposites... good and evil, male and female, love and hate, like part of the human being.

I hope you all likes it!

AND FAV PLEASE!! O__O, if you fave it i have more chances to wining!!, pleasee!! T_T!!, i put a lot of effort into this!!.

FEATURES AND Promotions are apreciated too!

I'll try to explain one of my dream despite my poor English.

My dream is that people will respect all life. I am thinking in particular of all the animals here on earth.
Many, many animals suffer tremendously because of the human. Why?

When I see a spider climbing up my wall on the balcony, I say ..... hallo little guy, how are you today? Yes I do. Because I love animal, and they have all my respect. Eaven a little spider.

And that's exactly what I want to say in my picture ..... the little mermaid who see the beautiful, cute little seal and say: Hello little guy, how are you today?

I have taught my children to always protect and be kind to animals. And they have understood the message.

My dream is that people and our beautiful animals could live side by side. That people will respect the animals value and the right to life.

That the animals will escape being killed because of human ego. For what?? How dumb are people really ...?????

Our animals are a blessing. (Your love ones can let you down ....... but your dog never do ....) :no:

* Be patient while the animation loads. It may take a few minutes *

Gosh I don't even know where to begin XD First of all I wanna say that this took way more time than I planned and that's cause I kept re-drawing the parts I didn't like and I really wanted this to be breathtaking... I hope I succeeded in it.
I'm not gonna lie, there are parts that bother me a lot and I would love to be able to re-do them but now it's too late lol XD

The image is really large cause I want you to be able to see every detail in this piece. You can start from the shelf and look at every bottle... You will see that content in every bottle is visible. :)

This is the first time I entered a contest on DA and I'm really thrilled. I really wanna thank DA staff for making this competition because it helped me push myself beyond my boundaries and really improve. This is by far my best work and I'm sure that there will be more to come in the future.

Time taken: I didn't count each hour but I know that I've been working on this image on and off for 5 days. Probably around 22 or so.

Program used: Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CS and Jasc Animation Shop :)

Textures by: ^FantasyStock , ~behirs , ~E-dina , =Falln-Stock and ~H9Stock

Here is the better view of the assets in the image: [link]

I had so much fun with this! I'm so happy I managed to finish it in time :)

P.S I love the quote I used in the title. I think it fits the theme perfectly. XD
