G. vs E.: Deep Shallow Waters by Ha-Jiel G. vs E.: Deep Shallow Waters by Ha-Jiel
The conflicts between good and evil are often fought on the mind's battleground. This image is based on Ophelia, a character in Shakespeare's Hamlet. Being heartbroken and at the edge of suicide, she drowns after she falls from a willow tree. I've substituted the willow tree imagery, a symbol of sorrow, for lotus flowers, a symbol of revelation and rebirth. In the end the battle she faced, good and evil as depression and calm, was internal. Only in death would she find peace.

Hope you guys enjoy

You know, I almost wanna take it as the bottom girl being more of a water demon and she's trying to attract someone to save the floating girl.

But I get what you were trying to convey too.
