Good VS Evil by Hideyoshi Good VS Evil by Hideyoshi
Can't believe I actually took my time between all the work I need to take care of at the moment and chunked this one out for that 'Bring your Vision to Life' contest! Clients should prolly not read this *cough
Anway, those prizes are too tempting!
Interestingly, I looked at the topic and for some reason, this weird image popped into my mind almost instantly.

Little low-tech African kid Ndugu saving his hometown village from Genocide... or something like that.
._.

took about 6-7h I think, modelled those tins :)
Basically no ref. except looking at random photos for inspiration.

edit:
bah, not even in the 50 finalists? :/ Well, whatever, this turned into a good personal piece for myself :)

A perfect portrait of a mythical confrontation. Even if the boy doesn't have a chance there is an overwhelming feeling of braveness. Congratulations!, I wish I can reach this quality in my works someday.

You have some pretty epic skills there Hideyoshi. I wish I could paint as well as you can.

Holy...now, THAT is one entry that probably will win something. :-) And the topic fits this situation so well. :dance: It's particularly refreshing, partly because of the way you applied the theme to a believable atmosphere. And the colors work together so beautifully (once again, you have impressed me with them)

Keep it up! :w00t:

Excellent!

The confrontation between a boy and a soldier equipped with high-tech devices, gives an idea of the helplessness of a boy, a town or country against the overwhelming advantage of some mayor military power, with not very good interests…

Composition and color are very fine, as ever :thumbsup:

This is a piece that can tell us a story and a feeling.

:peace:

I like the ambiguity. Reminds me of the Vietnamese and Afghans ... the difference in technologies and the point of view as to which was a good guy and which the bad. Anything that doesn't make one think is pretty but not necessarily lasting. This piece should last beyond you, by word of mouth alone. Impressive.

The kid will surely win with his magical slingshot and whatnot, his awesome bucket helmet will definately protect him against the hyper-laser-cannon-of-doom that guy is about to shoot him with..

Great pic, like the colors and everything :)
