November 2006: Black and White

Once again, we are allowing you free reign and letting you draw anything you want... ALMOST. ;) The rule this time is to leave out the color completely and create your masterpiece in black, white, and the shades in between. Entry subjects must follow the general rules, but otherwise, get creative!

Title: Tainted love
Artist: Epantiras []
This month's topic gave me the idea of portraying a "tainted love", when someone believes to be able to change his/her partner's heart while it's the partner who change the other's heart, corrupting it.
Black, white and all the shades of gray are great to symbolize how good gets "tainted" and becomes evil.

Title: The Morning Guard
Artist: Shii [DeviantArt]
I immediately thought of stone sleep and Valar's castle walls when I read black and white theme. So this is what came out. I'm actually quiet pleased with it.
Originally there was going to be another Gargoyle in the foreground but he was taking away from Devon, whom I wanted to be the main focal point. The overlapping buildings look kinda lame but I'm not entirely annoyed with them. And of course, Devon is the Gargoyle that resides in Valar, raised by the community has tradition among her kind.
