Fanart: crouching at her door

The deviantART community is home to a large group of Christian artists whose work is influence by anime.  I’ve been blessed to feature examples of work by Beau Soir, sA-oHime, pancake-waddle, GenevieveGT, and ShouYume thus far.  Today, I want to show a beautiful piece by another talented artist, ~Snow-in-Spring.  This wonderful piece of digital art really drew me in – it’s not obviously Christian (an explanation of its connection is below) and it’s quite dark – reminds me a bit of American McGee’s Alice.  I love it, and I hope you enjoy it as well.

Artist Reflections:

“If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” – Genesis 4:7

For my new years resolution, i decided to finally read the whole Bible. so I was catching up on readings I’d missed for the first 4 days of January and this verse didn’t just jump out at me. it practically jumped and mugged me >=O so I drew this.

(if you don’t get it, the smoke coming out of her mouth is all her wrong doings, ie lying, slandering, gossiping etc which left her heart unprotected. the knife is her willingly destroying herself then… i think you can guess what the black blobs are >_>)

  1. That looks beautiful. Sometimes, I marvel at how people excel at digital art. And this one in particular actually has some concept and meaning behind it. unlike most fan art doodles (not to say that they’re bad, but this is a whole another level of creativity). Kudos.

  2. Fantastic artwork, and unbelievable symbolism.

    I’m also impressed by your New Year’s resolution. I haven’t read the full Bible in many years. I don’t have time to read much of anything these days. 🙂

  3. Wow, great piece of art! I’m going to think of this every time I read that verse now 🙂

  4. It really is a wonderful piece. I was blessed to find it – she also has a lot of great work on her Deviant Art site.

  5. […] Just as the rest of Johan’s actions are instrumental to his attempt to influence Tenma, Nina, and maybe some others, temptation is the first, most central and worst action of Satan. His more theatrical displays of evil (possessions and the like) are external phenomena meant to instill fear and despair, and not as relevant as his attempts to make us participate voluntarily in our own destruction, the only true destruction. Temptation is what St. Paul is describing when he says, “Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” […]
