"Daylight follows a dark night" - Maasai Proverb

----

My entry for the Good -vs- Evil, Bring Your Vision to Life contest.

I've had this image in my head for a long time: The bravery, strength, and goodness of a people who -come what may- stand tall in the face of impossible odds.

I truly hope this creates a story unique to each viewer's mind.

My words seem so simplistic to describe the true calibre of this submission. Firstly the colour is amazing and fits perfectly to the scene that is unfolding. Man and beast against the true force of evil. The sheer terror of whether or not the lightning will strike, but the stance and stature of the warriors and animals say "Bring it on".....I love it.......OK I am waffling but I have been staring at it for ages and had to say something:giggle: U know life is like that in reality, we so often don't step over that invisible line of evil, just in case that so-called bolt of lightning does hit us in the butt. So Good does reign over evil??? hummm u decide.....:iconemukid:

What a beautiful compliment to receive! Thank you soooo much for this thoughtful comment!

The top 50 finalists for this contest were announced, and I wasn't one of them. However, dA is letting the community choose a Community Choice winner - by letting the artists try and get as many fav's in between now and June 4th. (read more about it here: [link]) Whoever recieves the most, will win the Community Choice! They enouraged us all to use our journals, or whatever means of spreading the word as possible....so I'm asking my lovely watchers, and people who enjoyed this work to spread the word! If you know someone who will like it, tell them to come fav it and further my last shot at winning the Community Choice vote! THANK YOU!!!

I was amazed that you were not in the semi-finale. I found your work exceptional. I must say there are so many amazing works in the Top 50 but there are also some that I feel are good but not up too your standard or many of the other artists on here I would of picked instead. But who am to judge???? .......:icontheheartplz:

very original idea. Nice technique and colours.
The proportion between people and wave and the effect of storm give it a magic dark atmosphere.
Nice work

Community choice...I know
But the popularity system is cruel.
Popularity vs quality. There's not always dialogue...

however, good luck ;)
