It’s time for the Opposites Attract Contest! My first entry is a play on words featuring the classic angel/demon dichotomy:
Knight & Dei photo Timedrop23-KnightampDei_zpsc17c525d.png
Knight is a black suit of armor possessed by a fire demon that manifests itself as a sword and shield.
Dei (whose name is latin for “God” or “gods”–my suffix skills are seriously lacking) is the angel/light-bringer of the duo.
A further dichotomy in this image was an unintended consequence of the color choices I made on Dei. While Knight seems to have greater dimensionality, with his sword providing an angular focus that comes edge-first at the “camera,” Dei comes off as almost paper-thin–even unreal–as though she were a news clipping pasted into Knight’s universe.
