Newborn - Birth of a Good Deed (Final)
Title: Birth of a Small Good Deed
This painting is depicting the birth of “One Small Good Deed” surrounded by pure evil and it's power under overwhelming odds. Evil is represented by demon revolving around the bright light with wings “Good Deed” represented in what I believe is a universal symbol for good.
Think of it this way; the demons are regular people doing evil acts and the small bright light is one person doing a small but good deed.

Thank you FalyneVarger and bWorx
Here are most of the sketches I used to create the image.

This is a lot more easy to understand. I can get a better idea at what you are trying to convey with this lighting.

that's one of the most original ideas in this contest, i like the fact that the good deed has to go through so much hell before it can be realised (as in real life.) it makes much more sence with the colour added in,
gat my eye on this

I have adjusted the compositions flow/gesture and splattered some base color. I’m also working on some detail sketches that I will post later.

Still don’t know what the "good deed" will look like

They weave and tangle, eyes and ears opened. On the look out for,
*Rage Against the Machine 'cmON
I love the pencils and composition.
Is it a sacrifice? Interesting to see how you create the transition.
A portal? Accidental apple? [I've got nothing].

This is a really interesting idea and I've visited this thread a lot. The pencil work is really lovely and your concept is well supported by the composition. Can't wait to see that 'good deed' object.

Thanks guys… I am still working on the pencil stage, adding detail and tweaking the flow of the composition.
I need some help on what the good deed can be. Any ideas you all can share with me would be helpful.
I have this so far
-Tree/vines growing out of the light
-Bright green/blue light in the shape of wings with feathers floating towards the viewer
Will do some sketches of them soon just need to finish the pencil drawing pass.
I will have an update soon
