Yin - Yang by JessiBeans Yin - Yang by JessiBeans
So... Life has been INSANELY busy, I need to go through all of my notes and emails (I will, I SWEAR!!!) and finish up commissions, etc. Until then, a little something to mull over...

CHOW #94 - Yin & Yang

I got to host this one cause I won a couple weeks back (woo!) and I wanted to show my Yin & Yang as Chaos vs. Creation, one weaving the tapestry of the world on a loom made from the other, the other one consuming everything, etc... yadda yadda yadda. I just wanted to draw flowy things, let's be honest.

Also, I know, I switched them, I did it on purpose. Assuming women are weaker makes me annoyed, so she gets to be the dominant for once.

Amazing.  Although one little critique.  To the main concept that even that both are light and dark.  That there is light in dark and dark into light.  It be interesting...unless I'm not seeing it.  It is an awesome masterpiece.  I must admit it.  Back to my original thought but I might see it.  I might need some clarification that the others holding onto the others symbolize the light holding on to the dark and vice versa.  Also a thought on the background (if I am wrong) to see the light shine behind her the dark and the opposite the devil like creature.  I hope I might help.  Love it though. Love it!

Great concept! I love how the shape of the traditional yin-yang is very subtle.

Wow! I can't believe how detailed this is. Yang eating Yin could use some more definition though. Fantastic job!

Its a bit ironic considering Yin is the woman and darkness, representing passive and receptive and emotion. :3

very nice...but the whole women is weaker thing is completely wrong. yin and yang isn't about dominance its about complicity, one cannot exist without the other.
