Contemplating Duality


Contemplating Duality (2001 - 2009)
Pencil and oil paint on illustration board, 11 x 17 inches (28 x 43cm)

This is meant to be a girl lying on a couch, with her body tensed in a rigid position. It's kind of meant to represent that the girl is wrestling with the concept of duality. But more specifically the concept of Good and Evil. I did kind of want the demons to be "dissolved" by the angel as well. Overall though I just wanted to make a really cool piece of art!

WOOHOOO Front page! Thank you Newgrounds! What an awesome welcome for my artwork!
I just started posting my work on here, so much more to come!

Edit: Uploaded a larger size just because Newgrounds is awesome. It's still only about half size though, I'm looking into making a full size version available.

Stunning. Beautiful. Her anatomy is simply amazing. This is an amazing piece, but the way you've drawn her is what makes me gravitate towards this piece. Thank you.

very good

i would like to complement you and say very good


This is just epic love the fact that the girl is sweet and innocent but sexy at the same time and with the shadow dragons engulfing her.... but whats with the chick in the white flames, still looks great just wondering what it symbolises?


I think it's amazing. The texture of the drawing is magnificent, and I love the well detailed shading of the girl. Great work! You're imagination and creativity is superb. I look forward to you're future work :3

To Mathew12222: Dude. This isn't porn. It doesn't matter if the girl has some muscle on her. It wouldn't even matter if she was half llama. This is art, symbolizing the difference and concept of good and evil. If you want some gorgeous chick with large tities and a small waist, go to the M section of Newgrounds. For this matter, you made an unprofessional review.

Yeah uh..

I spent more of my reviewing scolding someone instead of complementing you're work *scratches head* Anyways, keep up the amazing work! You're awesome.

Nondual responds:

Lol, thanks for the review Smiley. I'm glad you like it.

You'll notice that I didn't even respond that kid, because I realize that nothing I could ever say is going to make him grow up 10 years.

Oh God (Plus i am atheist xD)

This is a different drawing, I think it is something really especial, and i see that angel after look at the picture 15 minutes LOL!

Nondual responds:

Thanks, I'm glad it gave you a surprise. That's what I intended.
