Fallen by hypnothalamus Fallen by hypnothalamus
After the first battle between Good and Evil, the angels realized there was no turning back to the times when both sides were pure. The elder retreated to the high tower, with red blood dripping from his white hand. It was not his own, it was devil blood and he felt dirty at the thought. Desperately, he tried to wipe it with his white cloth but it only made things worse. Finally he gave up and accepted that everything was irreversible. In the stillness of the long night to come he whispered to himself: "Paradise is lost."
And the War had only begun.


__

this painting is about the loss of innocence, the realization that pure good and evil are a child's dream and the impact it has on the inner world

It's usually very hard to use white in a "negative" character, but you did an amazing work here by adding those red touches. It gives to the picture an amazing contrast

Kinda Assassin's Creed-ish. I love the halo and the colors. And the detail in the hands :o


A very inspiring piece.

I love the definition of the feathers on the wings- theyre beautifully majestic. The detail on the hands vs the purity of the clothes also makes a bold statement and again, adds beauty :D
The concept is awesome!

(Maybe you could make it flicker to emphasise the duality??)

I had a few more ideas with the angel as a subject and with the implied duality
I'll try to paint those one day :D - or make sculptures (not sure yet)

changed the levels/contrast a little because the image was too bright and made details hard to see on some screens
