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.
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.
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!
