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.

That looked like spam, just clarifying it is NOT spam. A brazilian blog plagiarized you hard. I think you should take measures, unless you gave them rights — which I seriously doubt — this is art stealing and I think there should be punishments. I needn't to say they get profit with that blog, so yes, it is profitable.

I really want a print of this. > <
See how corrupted our government can get now-day-days when they want to. -_- And there's pretty much nothing any of us can do but sign petitions and carry on with our own ignorant lives.
