One day where the realms of instict and reason clash, the kings of each land meet once more for their annual "what will we do with the human brain" discussion.
Tired of many years of clashing and battling, they agreed that from there on, the game of dice they both liked would decide the outcome of every situation a human should encounter.

That's the origin of the coin toss.

Made for the "bring your vision to life" contest

Beautiful concept, love how u represented both aspects, making Instinct all wild beast looking and Reason, all intellectual and sophisticated seeming. 
And how u based both worlds against each other, creating a perfect insubordinate harmony between them. 
Very kool, i personally love how u portrayed Instinct the most, love the colours and shades u used on him, love his markings and how disproportionate he is and he really looks like a creature living up to his namesake, wild and predatory looking. 
And like i said with Reason, he really looks smart and...well reasonable. 
Very nice piece overall, really adored ur whole concept and everything. Very nice! :heart:

Reason: Ok, Benny. I'm going to explain it to you one more time. This is a "CUBE". Got it? Repeat after me....C-U-B-E.
Instinct: GDGdgdbgrrggdhhg<3
R: No no no, with a C. Come on, you can do it.
I: xxfdbOMGstghLOL#5......
R: SAY IT, YA LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT.
I: C-c-c-cube
R: Good boy. Now off to our next lesson. Quantum Physics.

I absolutely love how you made the seeming uncontrollable mania of "instinct" simultaneously beautiful in its own way.

Instinct is mere primal impulses?
