Beautiful Light by Saimain Beautiful Light by Saimain
A companion painting to “Sentinel”. A play in contrasts and symbolism, Nimri being the light to Morgan’s shadow. His painting was solid black on white, she is solid white on black; he has ravens, she has doves; where he is harsh and looking down on a war-torn world, she is gentle and looking up in hope; he is surrounded by wilderness, she stands on her palace balcony.

I also tried to be clever and make their poses mildly but meaningfully interact when the images are overlaid, as you can see here: “Light and Shadow” :)

I love how you make her picture balance out his, its a lovely concept. And I really like the detail you put into this in places like her hair, her dress and the balcony and the doves. Great job!
