This was originally created for the first "Bring your vision to life"(Good vs. Evil) contest. However, I changed the category so I can submit it as a print. :)

There is actually no separation between good and evil since they are two faces of the same coin. Therefore, I preferred to put there good and bad feelings, and also things that create such emotions in each of us. Notice that some words are in both sides... :giggle:

Hope you enjoy. It took me almost 6 hours to make it (never done this kind of stuff before), so favs and comments are highly appreciated :thanks:

*UPDATE*: I added the beveled effects, as well as cleaned the overlaps (thanks to ~MortenG for the suggestions). Oh, and added a few more words, to fill some spaces :)

In all honesty, their is nothing to critique on this deviation. The time, skill and effort that must have went into such an amazing work of art is astounding. If this contest hadn't come I feel the dA community would have been robbed of such an excellent example of art. Not only is this whole piece made up of individual letters, words and ideas; it is also a huge conglomeration of entirity. Good v.s. Evil is surely represented in this text art and truly deserves recognition in and of itself. Nothing more could be said, or needs to for that matter. This piece Stands out more than anything i have seen yet.
What do you think?

This is very good. I think that this is a wonderful deviation. It is much better than mine, which I'm going to submit in a few days. Something I am wondering is why you put in time, anxiety, and sausage in the evil side. Time isn't always a bad thing, because it could be soon or something. Anxiety could be worry, but it could also be a strong want for something, which could be good. Sausage would only be true if you are either a vegeterian, or hate cruelty to animals, which in that case, would be very strong. Overall, this is a nearly perfect description of good vs. evil. Much better than mine :3

I'm sorry, but you completely misunderstand what Yin and Yang are, it is NOT good VS evil, it does not represent good and evil respectively. Yin, darkness, does not mean evil, it means dark, cold, empty, wet, and so on, in balance with bright, hot, full, and dry for yang. Yin represents female as well, and yang is male, does this mean female is equivalent to evil? No, it's just a part of being human. "Evil", or rather undesirable effect is when yin and yang AREN'T in balance, like for instance, hot and cold. Good is good right? And you can never have too much of good? Well, if we apply this false kind of value to yin and yang, the entire meaning of the symbol doesn't make sense, it would not be good if everything was hot, or full, or dry, and neither does those qualities have any inherent morality. It is best summed up as this, yin and yang are not good and evil, their harmony is good, the absence of that harmony is evil. Yin and yang as evil and good is an extreme misconception that should stop being continued. If it was morning all the time, everything would be destroyed, same if it was night, the universe needs the gentle, balanced flux of yin and yang.

Evil and good when applied to yin and yang would actually be closer to having its respective polar qualities defined on each side, and the space OUTSIDE it representing evil.

I've been practicing TaijiQuan for several years now so I'm familiarized with all you say and the deeper meaning of the symbol.

This work however, was done when I was younger - for a contest named "Good vs. Evil".
It was my interpretation of the theme at the moment :)

there is no good or evil there is only choice and fate you decide both of them that's what separates all of us and calling ourselves humans your choice is your fate

how can cowardly running away from life can be good?

:iconrs-kyra:
RS-Kyra Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011  Student Photographer
It isn't cowardly, and that's an insult to everyone who has committed suicide. A statement like that can only come from someone who doesn't understand; suicide is neither good nor bad, it's just sad.
Reply
:iconansheen:
Ansheen Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
ok I think I didn't express myself very well. The reason I put suicide on the evil side is for the overall "vibe" of it. Someone who wants to put an end to his life is for sure not happy and all cheerful and shiny and everything nice. His feelings are of despair, sadness, depression or whatever they might be - negative, "evil" feelings :)

i love your picture! :D it's really imaginative and beautiful.

i just wanted to add this: the symbol yin and yang do not represent good and evil, but more a balance of things. you could see it more as day and night. both are good, both have downsides. for example, yang is masculine, seen as passionate, hot, fast, focused, while yin is feminine, cool, calm, collected, chastity. (wow four c's :XD:)
I'm not trying to bring down you're picture at all. Like I said, I really love it! I just wanted to let you know :)

In this deviation there are the regular good and not-so-good things, as well as some cliche's :giggle: One of them is the sausage on the evil side and fruits on the good side. Why? Because of the strong advertisings that tell us to eat vegetables because they are much healthier, better, et cetera for our body, more than (fried) meat and so on. Besides, meat=killing and I strongly oppose cruelty against animals :aww:
