The Inner Struggle by TheNass The Inner Struggle by TheNass
READ DESCRIPTION PLEASE!

Hey guys

this is my entry for the good vs evil contest.
With this image I wanted to portray the inner struggle between good versus evil, also called "the heart of darkness". I chose this subject as it's a very personal matter to me. Lately I've been struggling with whether to try finding a job which pays well and so gives me an opportunity to build up a decent, stable life (the fancy jacket), or to try finding a job with my passion: drawing (the heart). Which would mean a very uncertain life.
This explains why I didn't go for a "heart of darkness" because I'm still struggling with which one is good and which one is evil.

I used a puzzle of references in this one for the linedrawing, but not for the rendering. It's all started from scratch in Photoshop.

Comments and favs are appreciated!

With all respect, but I would prefer not getting comments about my personal struggle. Please only comment on the painting

this is awsome man i feel you with the struggle all i can say is follow the wind hommie because even in the uncertaincy of things the wind will always flow in the right direction.... great great and very powerful peice mate

the charactar reminds me that of sylar from heroes tv series in the case that because he was at the pinical of descion destiny decided to make it for him and unfortunitly those controling "his" destiny where morally grey themselves thus turning him into a monster of such caliber un matched
