"Hope is the pillar that holds up the

Quote by Pliny

"If everyone cared, and nobody cried
If everyone loved, and nobody lied.
If everyone shared, and swallowed their pride,
Then we'd see the day...that nobody died.
And I'm singing
Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, I'm alive...."

From "If everyone cared" by Nickelback.

Since the tenth anniversary of Sept 11th was coming up, I decided to step up my pariotism and draw a picture to commemorate this day in which we were all bonded as one country. It was abit hard at first to think up WHAT to draw, considering someone already beat me to the punch at drawing Osama burning in hell (Epic peice btw). However when I noticed an old wallpaper in my gallary of Ed and Al standing in a reflecting pool reaching up towards a flock of doves...I knew then I had my muse.

It was then that I re-drew the scene and added the towers into the reflection of the pool. However let's get this straight...I did NOT trace this! I will even toss up the original to prove my point.

I have to admit, Al came out much quicker than Ed did this time around...probly cause Al is a bunch of large simple shapes whereas Ed is a mass of complex folds and more detail is needed to his face and body etc. Plus their hands came out splendid. Plus I got to expirament with more complex angles and what not which pleased me greatly that I managed to pull it off. (As in you feel you are getting a 'bird's eye view' of them angle)

Also this WAS submitted on the 11th, but we all know how pending can be a pain in the @$$ neh? xP

And let us not forget the lives that were lost on this darkest of days that pulled us together as one country and showed we are much stronger than others think.

In rememberance of September 11th 2001.
We will never forget those who risked
their lives to preserve America's
enduring freedom.

SweetxinsanityxSarahWell I chose this show considering it hits home with the topics in real life, especially with war and heartache and unable to do things like save a simple little girl or your mother, making you feel all the more human.

IamphotoshopAwesome art but it's still painful for all those people to die during the fall of the Twin Towers.

lashanta22Awesome line art and a wonderful tribute to the Twin Towers and the people that were lost.
I love their faces and having the dove is a nice touch.

SweetxinsanityxSarahYes I am rather proud of how their expressions turned out too, Al's is my favorite cause though he is just a suit of can feel the sorrow in his eyes.
