Bruisedby waterspirirtjess

Contests / 2009 / Bring Your Vision to Life©2009-2015 waterspirirtjess
I started out painting this on real canvas and then scanned it into the computer and painted the second half of it in Corel Painter.

I used a big variety of different paint, both traditional and digital paint, such as water color, chalk, ink and oil.

As a reference I used myself as a little girl.

It was painted for the wacom contest "bring your vision to life" and this is my vision of "good versus evil".

Good and evil is just as big of a contrast as black is to white. Still the concept of good versus evil is anything but black and white.

I think ignorance breeds fear, and fear can breed evil. In many cases we are scared of the unknown, of everything we can't grasp or even control. We view it as a "predator", something we have to kill before it kills us.
With this mind set, don't we become the very thing we fear?... Predators.

This made me cry Jess. She has such a fraility about her. Her innocence to be lost perhaps. Look within yourself Girl you are an absolute rarity and I am proud to be your friend.........:iconthe-heart:

Hi Jess no idea how I missed it..well actually got an idea :)

But yes it an excellent work of art :clap: :rose:
and I wish you all the very best luck in the Contest

You show a very non black and white way of showing good and evil
I think its very true dear and you summed it very beautifully and so correctly I think too.

I lot of whats is happening in the world today
is purely fear driven.
and a lot are cashing in on it too


To quote you

Good and evil is just as big of a contrast as black is to white. Still the concept of good versus evil is anything but black and white.


I think ignorance breeds fear, and fear can breed evil. In many cases we are scared of the unknown, of everything we can't grasp or even control. We view it as a "predator", something we have to kill before it kills us.
With this mind set, don't we become the very thing we fear?... Predators.

So true dear I totally agree
I would perhaps in some cases put hatred in before evil as its from our hatred of something, one(even ourselfs) we can commit great evil ...we are not black and white but many shades of grey and careful you dont become what you profess not to be by your hatred fear & ignorance.
