YinYang: Magic and Science by ExiledChaos YinYang: Magic and Science by ExiledChaos
[UPDATE!] Muchhh better photo finally =)! I also made some minor edits to it but nothing big

I wanted to do something more original since every yin yang is something like sun/moon, man/woman, etc, so I did Magic v. Science. Magic side is mysterious, dark, nature and water, and feminine. Science side is progress and discovery, fire and metal, masculine. My interpretation at least >>; Pretty happy with it.

If it becomes an issue, I'll add a mature filter, but I'm so used to boobs and wieners I don't even bat an eye at it anymore and find it to be pretty normal... so grow up you guys >>;

I was also able to get my self portrait back so I have every intention of finishing that... it's just been a very long busy week... But I think I got most of the big things out of the way...

P.S. I have some close ups I will try to post soon.

art and interpretation by me (Bekah C.) Do not steal...

Fabulous idea :love:
Oh my god. Id love to get this as a tattoo!
I dont know how receptive you'd be to that?
lol! I'm flattered. I would say just go for it x3 I only ask that you don't sell the art to the tattoo artist or claim it is your own. =) And if you could get a picture of the finished work and send it to me ;)

Um... I can't enable prints for this though, since it's in a compilation book for my school to help raise funds for illustration scholarships... If you wanted to be a true saint, you could buy a copy of the coloring book that this work is in, and that way you'd help the scholarship (I wouldn't actually get any of the moneys >>; but that's ok in this case...) Let me know if you are interested in this plan, or if you're still planning to get the tattoo!

Great work, Great concept!
love the concept of it! Wonderful work too! congrat! :D
fascinating concept, i only have one minor issue. the typical yin yang shows light in dark, and dark in light, so it seems to me that it would make sense to have the pentacle in the science side and the atomic model in the magic side. or perhaps that's just me.
Much better picture. I really like it now that I can actually see it.
i love this! the way you drew it is just awesome!
I like this, it's been great seeing what you've been working on since I've graduated. I miss seeing everyone else's work developing every day. It kind of reminds me of a book I've been reading called Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood (in a post apocalyptic future there is a a group of gardeners forms who blend science and religion into their belief system).

(I also got pretty used to boobs and wieners thanks to nude drawing and painting, during 2nd year in a painting class there was one girl who painted a full frontal of an old guy, and the teacher praised her as being daring. They're just bodies!)
