    Lightbulb 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.

    This is an interesting idea. And original too. (at least for "newborn")
    I'll keep watching this thread.

    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

    update 3

    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.

    I love the pencils and composition.
    Is it a sacrifice? Interesting to see how you create the transition.

    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
