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

~~~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.

Most of your works are very psychological. I like psychological themes.

I really love both versions, and all of your artwork is amazing and thought-provoking! 

In fact, this scene reminds me of an execution.

I've seen pictures from Ferguson emerge recently and it's starting to look so much like this it's unreal.
People should definitely be worried about what comes next if the police are allowed to get away with this.

With the things going on in Ferguson right now, this picture is becoming more and more realistic.
