.: Look in the Mirror :. by Kaizeru .: Look in the Mirror :. by Kaizeru
Look in the mirror...

...and you will see your other self. Evil lies naked within all of us, we just have to pay attention to it. Many a times we are quick to point out the flaws of others, but remain ignorant of our own actions. More often than not we choose to neglect reflecting upon ourselves.

So is evil really that far off?

If we do not keep it in check it will eventually taint and consume us whole. Thus it is a constant battle of good vs evil.

--------------------------------------------

I'm bad at expressing things figuratively, so i went for the straight ball.

- Angelic and demonic side, well you get the drift. Straight forward enough.
- Almost naked demonic side, represents that evil lies naked within ourselves.
- Closed eyes for the angel side to represent ignorance.
- Tendril like things swirling around the connected palms represents the taint creeping in.

cliche....but i hope i get my message across clear enough ^^ ;;

Thank you in advance for your comments and favs in showing your support!!!

Not that cliche, normally it shown via a dark, inhuman personification, rather than a human reflection, to highlight the "wrongness" of it, to make it alien. You did make the message quite clear, I a nice piece with a good theme, even if the concept has been done before, just much more bluntly. Well done, keep up the good work.

That which they percive themself and what they really see in the mirror are usually two different things.

I like the ideology employed to reach this piece, along with the excellent painting technique. I really like what this stands for, although I think that people are often too addicted to the idea of duality to really enjoy balance in life.

Nonetheless, beautiful artwork.

I ask you not to discuss the latest times that you work and been busy with uni, but returned to say ^ ^

I have no words to express a great job as always ^ ^ you, I love the texture of the clothes and hair of the girls, very beautiful indeed.

The pink ribbon and very nice too, but be careful when using the color black for the motif of the devil there is almost no
