Zodiak No 9 Twins by Ethelie Zodiak No 9 Twins by Ethelie
I really wanted in on this competition so I decided to incorporate it into my current school project ^^
And I just finished in time!

The image depicts the zodiak sign of the Twins.
It represents the differences and the likenesses between us all, as we are defined by our opposites.

They are sisters and even though they are eachothers opposites there are still simillarities inbetween them.
The butterflies are day cratures, basking in the sun as do the flowers, while spiders, moths and beetles hide in darkness.
The color balance in the image adds to the feeling of a ying and yang, being very light on the upper side and very heavy with black on the bottom.
This is also strenghten by the opposite shadings on their eyes and lips.

They both wear pearls because I wanted to convey the impression that they are the same. I also added the red details to emphasize that link, as well as add to the overall impression of the image, making it a bit more interesting.

They kind of remind me of me and my sister, we are very different but very much alike at the same time :)

Inked with pen on A3 paper.

Vote for me please! :D
