Did You Think This Was War? by bewarecalamity Did You Think This Was War? by bewarecalamity
Everyone thinks that life and death are always at odds. Why is this? Just like good and bad, life and death are what make this world. They aren't at odds, in fact they're the same. It's the circle of life, there is no war... just us.

Thank you wonderful stockers:

Oh, this is a tough one.. What's in this for me is that life and death will always follow eachother. The birds flying I interpret as life flying by. Nice work^^

The difference, of course, being that good and bad don't technically exist.
But that's me, now. Everyone else seems to think they're absolutes ._.
*Coughs* Enough ramblings, DB.

Good blending, but the people annoy me somehow. I'm not sure, but I think it's their hands... I'd've though they'd more be dancing together, not just standing. It's too static ._.

1. I'm Buddhist, so I agree with that on a level... people think I'm crazy too it's ok! :hug:
2. I know what you mean! However, what I was trying to portray (and not doing it very well) was life and death meeting. One soul dies (the raven) so one must be born again (the owl), this is the portal which they meet... if that makes sense, haha.

Great picture, love the colours and composition, very well done! It looks like life and death are friends together! The edge of the white dress looks harsh and jaggered aginst the black dress, it may look better if you blur the edge. Also, you could try darkening the shadow beneath the white dress. These are just little things however, this is one of the best pictures I've seen for a while! :heart:

Thank you so much and thank you for the critique! It wasn't until way into it that I realized I had forgotten some shadowing on the white dress! I didn't think anyone would catch it :paranoid: I may go back and redo it now. Thank you!
