Cops and Robbers? by effenndee Cops and Robbers? by effenndee
An entry for the Wacom, Good vs Evil - Bring Your Vision to Life contest.

This is kind of a sideways take on the "Good vs Evil" theme. I found it really hard to think of things that truly represent 'good' and 'evil' going at each other. This is mainly because, for me, good and evil depend so much on what your perspective is and what context the situation is.

What I hope to achieve with this image is differing views of which parts of the image represent good and which represent evil/bad. For example, on first glance one might think the robber is the evil part and the cops are the good part, but then why is the robber holding a feathered cap and running in the direction of Sherwood? Is he running to Sherwood because he is in fact Robin Hood, the famous outlaw who stole from the rich to give to the poor? If that's true then that makes what he's doing good?

Not sure how well I achieved that as it's completely up to you, the viewer. Never the less, I hope you enjoyed viewing it!
