Rise - Night Version by yuumei Rise - Night Version by yuumei

I couldn’t decide which version to draw since each conveys a different atmosphere. The day version focuses more on hope, while the night version focuses more on oppression, so in the end I drew both.

Day Version Rise by yuumei

~~~Original Description~~~

A scene from Fisheye Placebo.

This image was inspired by a free Breadley Manning protest I participated in. We were a small group of about 20-30 peaceful protesters met by an overkill of riot police. We dissipated peacefully to avoid arrest but the image of facing against a roll of riot police remained in my mind.

For those not familiar with Bradley Manning, he was the one who leaked the Collateral Murder video to Wikileaks. The video details the slaughter of innocent Iraqi civilians and journalists by American soldiers. Amongst the injured were 2 children whose father was killed. When the journalists' families asked about how they were killed, they were lied to. For revealing the true casualties of war, Manning was put into solitary confinement and tortured without trial.

That's how you disappear, not fight tyranny.  Just saying.

I just wanna say, this is one of the best wallpapers- or images in general, for that matter- that I have ever seen. Absolutely love how it tells a story.

I love that you have personal experiences you put in your drawings, it makes a beautifully realistic feel. It's sad that a dystopian cyberpunk world can be related so accurately to real life though.

The fact that this is becoming relevant again is very heartbreaking. However, it also shows that there are still people that believe that things should be handled better. While there is no right or wrong (although, I think it's safe to say that Nazis are evil and wrong), there is still room for change and hope for dreams.

I so love this version more than the day one.  I don't really know why, both are amazing.

Honestly, I think that you did exceptional on the night version. I love the way the color reflects in the background.
