My first entry for the Bring Your Vision to Life Contest
I decided to draw this one in my super old big eyed anime style hehe, I might do another entry in my normal semi-realistic style if I'm not too busy with finals =_=
My interpretation of good and evil is pretty complicated. Basically I believe there is no good or evil, just a matter of opinion, but for humans, there is a stereotype of what good and evil should look like.
Good = white, feathered wings, angel. Evil = black or red, bat wings, devil, demon blah blah blah. But really, what notorious dictator who have killed countless proclaimed to have done in the name of evil? Most humans always justify their own actions with righteousness, be it acts of charity or murder.
Since righteousness is good, and good is stereotyped as white with feathered wings, I drew this character who is covered in white feathers. But of course, humans don't sprout feathers, so how many swans did she have to kill to obtain her facade of purity, of goodness? Modern day America, the "land of the free", was built upon the deaths of native Americans and African slaves.
What "evil" are we willing to do to appear "good"?
