Sketching down ideas once you quickly receive them is crucial. Last night, I was sketching random characters after watching the first season of “Out of Eygpt” which enlightened me on various cultures that were once major empires, most alien from other cultures which were undeveloped worldwide. All the major empires have fallen, gradually cycling into another series; the United States, United Kingdom, China, India, Russia, and others which were once at their prime, now fading. In this tutorial; I was so inspired to draw ancient god-like figures, integraded with major religions of today, to portray a factor of imperialism. As you can see in the artwork, it features lots of eye symbols. I've splashed a bit of the “All Seeing Eye”, which is familiar with Illuminati. I won't discuss Illuminati here since I find it would offend some of you viewers (search it up on Google to heighten your knowledge.) Anyways, I took a goddess similar of the Hindu religion, and combined it with Christianity symbols (rosary beads, floating triangular heart, angelic wings, and a robe/pose similar to the Virgin Mary.) These combined give a powerful and mind-bottling message. I'm not sure if you can spot it, but the figure aligns with the circles, creating the illusion of a triangle; the pendant in the middle is the “All Seeing Eye”. The bright colors conveys the message of being blinded or hypnotized by Illuminati. I used vein-like tattoos on the arms to show that this god-like figure is a puppeteer of all who are hypnotized by this entity and it's poisonous gifts. I chose a woman because in most cultures, women are mere objects; controlling those who fall into their webs. I won't say no more, mainly because I want you to interpet this drawing the way you feel. Art is a form of emotion, so what do you feel when you look at this image? Anyways, I'm glad you're viewing, thanks for doing so and keep posted on future tuts. Peace out and good luck!
