Why Can't You Stay? by sazzykins Why Can't You Stay? by sazzykins
Yeah, finished! ^^

Okay, I decided ages ago to have a go at the Wacom "Bring Your Vision To Life" competition, but as usual, I got sidetracked after finishing the sketch, until a few days ago when I realised the deadline was right on top of me, so...I worked on it like a mad person, and there it is!

The theme was 'Good vs Evil', so instead of doing a battle, I went for a different approach, along the lines of the separation between the two. Everything is made up of good and evil, one cannot exist without the other, so my idea in this piece is basically just why are they always made to oppose each other? Opposites can attract too after all, and they both remain in each individual person, together, so why keep a wall between them as being one or the other?

Oh, and the title just came from the idea of evil often having to run from the fight, having lost, which also sums up why the girl on the right looks a little beaten up heh. But in this instance, good wants evil to stay so she can help her, but the glass keeps them apart, and instead of answering, evil just gives a sad smile.

I hope that made as much sense to you guys as it did in my head haha ^^; Now the fun part, I loved designing my symbol for 'evil', and I really liked how the blood came out...and as usual, I want the shirt! For 'good' the hair ended up exactly as I planned it which hardly ever happens, and what do ya know, I managed some fairly decent hands again! :D Plus, she's so cute.

Overall, I'm really happy with this picture, so I hope you lot like it too! ^^

If i didn't know any better, I'd say this was a fantasy version of Claire and Cliff from More Friends of Mineral Town...

I love your clothing designs in your pics! But... wait... are tattooes are evil now, or just arse antlers? :confused: And I always thought bunnies were more evil than butterflies, but clearly I'm wrong XP

These characters fully deserve to come back in other pieces, their designs are too great to go to waste. Not that I'm dropping hints or anything XD

*smiles* Thanks, I try :D

Well, I think they tend to represent being quite badass, or rebellious, stuff like that *bursts into laughter* I WANT ARSE ANTLERS!! XDDD True hahaha, I dunno where those motifs came from, I wanted a sharp, gothic-ish butterfly image, and a soft cutesy bunny thing...I think...*shrugs*

Yeah, I agree, I'll think of something ha *winks*

Cheers! ^^

Heh yeah, that's what I thought! Plus, let's not forget any excuse to draw cute-ness!!! XD

I had a lot more fun doing the evil one I must say, her outfit design was like an idea throw up! The bad guys have a more interesting personality more often then not I suppose, but I love the good one too for how sweet she looks, I wanna hug them both! ^^
