Drawing Them Out by Devil-Wolf-1999 Drawing Them Out by Devil-Wolf-1999
Yep, another one.

:D
I got this idea and started drawing immediately. I finished it in like 4 or 5 hours straight. :dance:
I purposefully kept it unblended and quite rough to make them look like a drawing, not like real life. See, the evil one is drawing the good one that is rubbing out the evil one that is drawing the good one.
The point is if the good one were to succeed in erasing the evil hand, then the good hand would no longer exist, because there would be no hand to draw it in. Therefore good cannot win without destroying itself. If evil were to complete the drawing of the good hand, then evil itself would be vulnerable and have nothing to bargain with, because the good hand would be able to erase it without the danger of not being finished.
Therefore neither can ever finish what they started.
Hence the battle between good and evil can never be resolved.

Hope you all like it. :aww:

Tools:- derwent pencils
Time:- 4 -5 hours

Then what makes the "good one" so good after all?

Where have you been, stranger?

:iconmornauto:
Mornauto Featured By Owner May 19, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh I've been around. I still check my subscriptions pretty regularly, but I always forget to have my camera batteries charged, and thus, no art to post... Also, school took over my life, but now it's summer here and thus, no school. How are you these days?
Reply
:icondevil-wolf-1999:
Devil-Wolf-1999 Featured By Owner May 19, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
Ah the battery dilemma... I'm suffering since my rechargeables died for good. Now I go through like eleven pairs a week of normal ones. They die so fast... :crying: Carry more in your bag and you won't have a problem and we'll have art. :D
Summer, lucky you. It's freezing at the moment and school is a pain in the butt as always. At least I got lots of free time since I only do three real study subjects now. I'm amped for the end of the year. No more school!!! Well, uni doesn't count... :laughing:

:iconmornauto:
Mornauto Featured By Owner May 20, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh yeah, the normal batteries are horrible for cameras. The other trouble I have is that there's just not much else to take pictures of. I haven't gone on any trips, and I've about exhausted my house as a source of pictures. At least I've exhausted it from a casual photographer's perspective.
How is Winter over there? What are your plans for after you finish school?

Devil-Wolf-1999 Featured By Owner May 20, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
Ah, the search for new subject matter... Do you have a Botanical Gardens nearby? That's pretty good for photos.
Winter is cold. Hahaha. Not snowy though, we're too close to the coast for that. But it's snowing all around us and we get the icy winds... Lot of clothes yey!
I want to do a bachelor of arts majoring in photography. Preferably in Otago or Lincoln College in Christchurch... It's very much up in the air, being a non-resident and all...

:iconmornauto:
Mornauto Featured By Owner May 21, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmm, there aren't any Botanical Gardens that I know of, though I'm sure I could find some subject matter if I looked around a bit. I'm going on a trip to the west coast in about a month, so I might be able to find some good stuff out there. After I finish writing this, I'll go through the pictures on my computer and see if I missed any that I should put up.
Winter is exactly the same over here. I live just far enough south that it doesn't snow, but it still gets pretty cold. We usually get MAYBE one round of snow per year, and its quite a celebration.
When you say non-resident, do you mean of a particular province or what? I know in America, tuition is higher if you live in a different state than the college, is it like that?

Ah, I see you found something. I'm going through my deviations just now, so I'll check them out. Oooh west coast sounds so I'm-taking-the-money-and-running-ish. :D
My logic is that if it gets cold enough, you might as well move down to where there's snow! lolz
No, non-resident as in I'm not a citizen of New Zealand. It doesn't matter where in NZ you are, but it matters if you don't have residency (legal stuff saying you can live there and that you don't commute back to Guatemala or wherever you really live for every holiday). we've applied but it might take a while and it might not come through in time for uni applications and scholarship stuff. Fingers crossed.
