Evil by Lucky978 Evil by Lucky978
The idea in this piece is evil (you can tell that from the title). From looking at it at first you might think that the wolf is the evil subject but in reality it is the city. I was thinking about how deceiving looks can be......poor wolf (aka wildlife in general).....the city is killing him :(

I am now selling skateboards with this design. Note me if interested!

I like the message in this piece, remind me Steppenwolf novel by Hermann Hesse. Colors flows from complete darkness to very bright right side, that with wolf figure symbolize to me escaping to freedom. Though red strings hold wolf back in the city, causing him to suffer. Wolf is painted in dark colors - same as the city so, that gives me feeling that he is part of it. This is exactly what man in the book struggle with. Great work!!! That would be perfect cover for the book.

it has a pretty cool and interesting message and wicked detail and technique... but... i kinda...
sorry, i dunnow how to say this.
i just think that the way you expressed your idea is not the best one.

just... i ABSOLUTELLY wouldnt know what it meant if i hadnt read it in the description.
but dont get me wrong, im not saying it is BAD. im just saying it is hard to understand.

but thats the only con i have. apart of that... you are one lucky guy whith talent ;)

Thank you for the comment!

And no worries XD I definitely agree. I painted this back when I was 15...I doubt I even knew what message I was trying to convey.
