Stunning art :wow:

It's the day when nature strikes back by calling on each and every animal to rebel.

Fantastic piece - very original and powerful way of depicting civil disobedience in the face of violence, brutality, and senseless killing. Congratulations on the very well-deserved Daily Deviation :heart:

What a nice heart warming piece of animal that usually hunts the birds, but instead becomes friends with them.

Firstly, I want to say that this piece is beautiful. The message, I believe, isn't as well crafted. It doesn't do a good job of showing the issue with police brutality and simplifies the issue in a "fight the establishment" way that I, as a black person, find issue with. I just wish I had better words to describe why.

Thank you for speaking up, I appreciate it. I was reluctant to depict the evidence of brutality directly because I felt like that would be fetishizing suffering, which already happens a lot, and I didn't want to contribute to that. But you're right that the focus of the message needs work: I had a hard time resolving it, and I think it came up short. The responsibility of rejecting one's role in a harmful system is important, but it's still centering the wrong people. I think I need to try again, because the problems with it are built into the central metaphor.

I understand what you mean, man. If you do try again, then I do hope to see what you make with this in the future. This work did stir a few people emotionally from what I've seen in the comment section even with that, so having a finer point could lead to you making something incredible - so keep it up.

The black-cap chickadees shredding the collar are a great image!

A wolf chooses, a dog obeys.

As humorous as it is, considering a dog's involved, it's bound to turn tragic.

This is hilarious and deeply moving all at once.

This concept is so beautiful and the colours and lighting in this image are stunning. I love the symbolism of the bright red collar being pulled apart by the birds. Amazing work and a well deserved DD!
