Eve by C4mi Eve by C4mi
Concept:
deluded by the serpent, with the promise of being as God, Eve eats the forbidden fruit and gain the knowledge of good and evil, unknown to all humans until that day.

------------

Personal Comment
I spend a lot of time trying to figure what to draw. This idea is one of many, but to me it pass more of the Good vs Evil idea: the snake has all the evil in God's Garden - speaking of creatures - while Eva has know just the good - no pain, hard work, bad feelings, diseases, etc.

The forbidden fruit was from the tree of knowledge of all evil and good in the world and she would have all that knowledge if she taste it.

I used the golden glow to show the God's creation, that's why even the snake have some of it. The fruit was told to give the same characteristics of God to the one who eats it, so it glows more than anything showing in the picture.

The "auras" are a symbolic detail representing the immortality from living in the garden, also reminding the old Christian paintings from churches. That is also the reason of the frame like a painting: because we want to frame everything that means something important, precious and memorable to us.

Also, that aura coming out of the frame has a meaning: the evil has no bounds, contaminating what it touches, different from the good feelings and presences, that cares about everything around and how an action can influence others.

Full view for better details, if its not already huge for your view. ^^;

:::: UPDATE ::::
The contest result is now up: [link]
I'm not in the semi-finalists... ^^;

Anyway, I liked doing this a lot!
I want to thank everyone, for your support, comments and favs!

You did a spectacular job on this. The frame element is so great; I have not seen anything like that digitally... The coloring is awesome and the way you portrayed the event is magnificent. Keep up the good work. Even though you didn't make the semifinalists, you entered and are to be applauded; I would have picked this as a winner.

I also love how realistic the snake looks! How did you paint that? :wow:

Also, there's a small frame going out of the big fancy one ^^;; I don't think that's supposed to be there...(if someone already said this to you, then sorry for being redundant; I haven't read any of the previous comments ^^; )
