The Dichotomy of Man by bjornik The Dichotomy of Man by bjornik
I would just like to thank everyone who took the time to congratulate me, added me in their devwatch and added this artwork to their collections. It's really an honor to be supported by creative artists like you.:hug:
- Björnik

This is one of the few lucky pieces where you won't see my hand and I like it better this way.

Anyway, this is a personal subject and style that I had been planning to draw for almost a year and I started to draw this 2 weeks ago when I found out about the Bring Your Vision to Life contest sponsored by Wacom and dA. Nice contest title, suitable and the perfect venue to give birth to this brainchild.

So here it is. I hope you like it.

The Dichotomy of Man
11 3/4" x 16 1/2"

EDIT: Oh my goodness, I made it to the semifinals! I have to thank my ever supportive friends and watchers for faving it. And to the deviants who are faving it right now and giving their thoughtful comments.

I'm having a great time reading your thoughts especially the one about science and nature. There are so many things I wanted to say in this piece and I'm flattered that it was reflected in the comments. But doesn't anyone see two kissing figures holding each other's arms?;) Enjoy!

This is now my background picture, always been a fan of how people interpret the Dichotomy of man.
