Resistance by Erulian Resistance by Erulian
This is my entry to the "Create and Imagine" contest held by EmmaAlvarez : [link] which can be found here: [link]

I received an invitation from Emma to submit to the contest and when I viewed the theme it inspired me to at least 4 different images. Unfortunately only one submission per artist is allowed, so I decided to submit this one. I know that background is perfect for yet another fairy image and many other entries used it that way. However, I am not a big fan of cute fairy things, so I wanted to show a scene in a time where such environments are just memories long gone, put up on a wall. But dreams, hopes and ideas cannot be stopped and there will always be a resistance as long as mankind has feelings, emotions and a heart.

Thank you.....

Almost a statement on modern life, the tragic difference between the perfect utopia we all dream of and the harsh reality of the world today. I could say so many good things about this image but it speaks so well for itself, a book could be written based on this scene, there's so much tension, tragedy and human struggle packed into it. So imaginative, I really hope the contest judges appreciate your creative twist on the theme. Good luck in the contest!

Thanks a lot... I doubt it will get anywhere in the contest, its not really a mainstream image, but I had great fun in making it and to take a different view at what was given as a basis. 8-)

Maybe the fact that it's not mainstream will get you some attention :) I like the fact that as you said you took a really different view then what I also expect people will do. It's always nice to see people "thinking outside of the box".

Very well posed and it absolutely does convey a lot of emotion. I find her relaxed pose and abstract stare upward unsettling and touching (in a very weird way). Like her head is about to roll to the side and whisper some last word to her distracted companion. He is so focus on what is before him and, in a way, so is she.

Very welcome, friend, and thanks for the compliment :) Actually I think there are some better images in there and I doubt I'll win, but it's ok, it was fun anyways. Good luck with yours as well! :)
