Alice (Actor 5-6) is a woman whose destiny was to become a saint. She is full of passion and gives equal love to the enemy.

Artist Interpretation:
The illustration is based on the Pieta by Michelangelo. I figured it fit her so well because of her VXAce Character Profile.

When Michelangelo made the sculpture, he wanted to send a strong message to the viewer that the atonement is a blessing to mankind. Oscar was perfect I think because he is listed in the Evil set and is interestingly listed as the 6th Actor. I also liked the idea that "Satan," a fallen Seraphim of love or arguably the representation of inner nature of man, is actually his demon form whose goal is to make demons and humans live peacefully together. Which I found interesting since coming into terms with our inner demons is essential to live a good life. I think despite his horrendous way of approaching the situation, he wanted what is best for his people (demons) too.

The Pieta is basically a message of hope for mankind which I strongly feel is what Alice's role is in the VXAce Cast List and how it continued from RMVX's 'story.'

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Definitely Pieta inspired. The Description is beautiful, the eggshell like platform elevates the two characters. The whole eggshell breaking thing presupposes some allegory, I like how deep this goes. Concept is awesome, the colors are pretty simple, but effective. Like! 5 stars!
