"Light and darkness captured in the same soul. Good and evil fighting within. Just as strong, just as weak. One cannot defeat the other, so they struggle for eternity." My brother portraid as an elf. Done in photoshop 7, in more hours than counted.

An elf huh? Looks more like Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars Episode III to me.

Neat! This is very very good. You really captured the contrast between both sides. One cold, one warm, one mysterious, one familiar, one mistrusting, one innocent. I really love "contradictions" within characters. That builds a lot of passion and drama within them.

Simple, but powerful. Great work on the reflections on his forehead, cheekbone, and chin, and love the colors. The moon in the background helps accentuate his chill side.
