Two sides of a single soul by WMDiscovery93 Two sides of a single soul by WMDiscovery93
Amelia, changed from innocent and kindhearted to an embittered and stoic demeanor by fifteen years of torture and experimentations done on her, was left with a split in her mind, one side of which was her past life, her innocence gone and hope fading away from ever finding peace; while her other, more darker side continues to creep into her mind, always right there, ready to consume her to the brink of insanity and complete oblivion of what remains of her mind. These two sides of her mind creates a conflict that challenges Amelia both physically and emotional. A conflict, along other challenges ahead for her that will test her mind and heart.

I wanted to make a play on the two sides of conflict within Amelia, her fading, innocent past longing in her mind, and her possible future where her darkened insanity waits in shadows, slowly consuming her mind and heart towards turmoil. And between the two conflict lies the stoic Amelia, stuck between two different sides.

I actually didn't realize it was so small until halfway through. ^^;

I usually hate anything furry, but this is just amazing.

Nice man, looks like you're starting to get used to photoshop already. I liked how you added blue reflections from the lights on the armor. But I think some of the metal parts could use some sharper value contrast to make it look more metal. So which tablet did you end up buying?

Even with the torture if she remembers what she is fighting for she can pull through but still learning how to cope with the other side always being there will be a heavy burden as well for her to think about as well. Either way she will find one that works but you never know and nice work on this as well.

Oh boy... Get ready for a long speech of mine. ^^;
*I gently approach Amelia to try and comfort her*

:worry:... I umm... I-I couldn't help but notice you seem to at war with yourself...... I know how you feel... These feelings are hard to overcome, especially when so many things around you are headed south...

*I sit on a boxing laying next to her*

Look... I know it's hard... I know life is hard... I know life throws a lot of pain at us... but it's our decision whether we want to continue or give up, grab a gun and pull the trigger on ourselves. I know you endured a lot of unpleasant moments in your life... those 15 years being the worst... but as they say: "The past can be painful, so we can either live and dwell in it, or learn from it?"

What I'm trying to get across, Amelia, is that you, out of all people have the strength to carry on and fight onward no matter what the scars. Your sense of hope is unlike anything I've ever seen in a person, and I'm amazed at that. :D

But when it comes to keeping your cool, you simply cannot unleash any anger on those who promise no harm to you. The way I see it, all hardships and pains can be endured as long as you have friends fighting alongside you and always being there for you when you need them most. You still have Chris, your lifelong friend who still accepts you for who you are and not what others claim you should be. I honestly think you hone a great design and capability for executing things no normal cyborg can accomplish. :D You have so many great things ahead of you, Amelia. Your quest for peace shall always be by your side so long as you have hope, confidence and willpower and of course, great friends to keep you company. If anyone says or tells you any different or gives you trouble... well...

As Cpt. Haddock from "TinTin" said: "If you care for something, you fight for it. If life puts a wall in your path, you push through it. The truth about failure is that you can NEVER let it overpower and defeat you."

So... *ahem*... W-with that being said... I hope I didn't bore nor irritate you with this... but to finish this little thought of mine... I just wanna' say... *I gently approach her and give her a hug* :huggle: Keep moving forward, Amelia... I have faith in you. :aww:

Phew, that was long... :faint:

Poor girl is in a quiet bad situation. I dont have much experience with things like this but the one thing I know is that if you is in such a bad condition they often need a friend. Someone to lend a helping hand, someone to trust, someone to share the pain, someone to provide a shoulder when needed, someone to never give you up.

Amelia is not predestined to fall for the darkness, only if no one catches her.

Whoa. Very nice especially if this was done in Photoshop as you previously mentioned. ^^ Her story has always fascinated me and this pic really foreshadows of what is yet to come for her. Can't wait to see more of your pics soon, bud. :D ^^
