Freedom or Allegory of the Cave

This project actually began as an experiement with angles.  That is, the angle of people.  It, however, turned into a very meaningful peace.  The lil Elf in the pic is (obviously) a Drow, and as many of you know, Drow are supposed to be vicious and blood-thirsty and evil.  I like to break the boundaries, however (imagine that, a Christian who dresses like a goth/punk breaking the boundaries?  Never!), and I imagined a lil scenario for our lil Drow lass here...She has broken her bonds and escaped her old life.  She has realised that there is a lighter, brighter world out there and she means to  explore and enjoy it.  As you can see, she is elated with her new life and discovery, and I imagine that she is possibly hanging onto to something as she swings out over the edge of the horizon here.To me, this is a representation of what it's like to have found new life in Christ.  I became a Christian when I was fifteen, so I spent a goodly nu,ber of years living on the other side of the fence.  Jesus gave His life for us and saves us from the darkness of the World, bringing us into the light.  It's a choice to be made.Sketched and coloured from scratch in Photoshop with Scribbles.
