Good vs Evil by Saibel Good vs Evil by Saibel
COPYRIGHTED - PLEASE, you can use the image with this text: "©Isabel Castaño." Thanks!

For the contest: "Good vs Evil: Bring Your Vision to Life"

My country, Colombia, suffers every day because of the problems caused by violence, kidnapping, social injustice, murder. This side is fighting tirelessly against the peacefully other side of my country, which is trying to solve the problems through dialogue and justice. This is my vision of what I see around me as "Good and Evil".

Each person may choose "to do good" or "to do evil". What kind of mask we want to wear... but always will be our body of flesh and blood behind it

I would also like to use your image. Would it be okay if a photoshopped a man instead of a woman into you picture?
Eilish29 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013
Hey Saibel my name is Eilish and I really love this design and was wondering if I could use it in a project I am doing on hand painting shoes. If you allow me to use it I will be keeping the basic design and changing a few things and then painting it onto a pair of van shoes. Hopefully you can get back to me as soon as possible. Thanks.

Hi Eilish, you can use the illustration plus adding "Image by". Could you please send me a photo of the van shoes painted? :lol:
Eilish29 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
Thankyou so much for allowing me to use your image. I'll make sure to send you a pic of the completed pair it might take a few months.

I absolutely love your symbolism in the picture! It's beautiful, happy, and somewhat depressing in the same way. In America, like Columbia, we are also faced with violence, murder, social injustice and kidnapping; yet there are many people out to do the right thing as well. I believe, if one wants to look at humanity as a whole, we are all like this picture- we can choose one mask or the otherx, but underneath we're still human.

Thanks a lot for all of you! :) I have not received a lot of favourites and comments like this work. :omg:
Arppis Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010
I think this work of art is pretty amazing.

I like the concept and you have really captured what "good" and "evil" really is. I think they are just words used to mask the real reasons and person behind them. I think it usualy is worth the time to findout what is behind those masks, to crack them open and see the truth behind it. Not just listen what others say.

Arppis Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010
Well, I saw this more of standpoint of "what people say of someone". Ofcourse we also choose to wear those "masks", but for someone else the "mask" might look completely opposite.
sskyline Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2010
woooooooooooowwww reallyy damnnn the most craziest best pic which describe good and evil is thatt :D:D perfectt not a nice job perfect job

The idea is so precious, the eyes behind the mask are so sincere and just amazing.

I also adore the idea of the gun and the dove, beautiful!

designgirl-82 Featured By Owner May 29, 2009
i just looked at the page for the wacom contest finals and i was really surprised not to see yours there. i was in the contest myself (mines did not make it) but i still voted for you. i absolutely love your entry and i was quite disappointed that this piece is not a runner up. you should have won first place because this is not just a pretty piece of art work, its beautiful and it has actual meaning and a story behind it, which makes it all the more better. maybe you should try entering it in one of the ballistic books like expose or something. good luck to you next time! :-)

SecondDaughter Featured By Owner May 20, 2009
Beautiful. Many of the submissions for this contest settled for extremely cliche images and themes, one of them being "inside we're both good and evil"--so hackneyed!

Your submission says: "We have the potential for either good or evil, but inside we are HUMAN," and I feel that is more true and more genuine that 90% of the entries here.
Sahnchen Featured By Owner May 20, 2009
I really like this one and the background behind it!

Interesting concept, lovely detail on masks! I love the girl's expression behind the masks, she looks sort of afraid... doesn't know which to hide behind? (Or maybe I'm totally off in my own world again XP)
Great work anyways! <3
RyukiRose3407 Featured By Owner May 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Love this. =D One of the top entries, in my opinion. Especially the personal level you gave it in your description.

Good luck!

'Each person may choose "to do good" or "to do evil". What kind of mask we want to wear... but always will be our body of flesh and blood behind it'

Lovely and well thought out. Another one to add to my top favs.
lisakolsky Featured By Owner May 7, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
This is made of win. Seriously, the way that the two masks are battling for their side even though the 'mask is off'. Lovely.
