Angels and Demons

A visual way of showing all is not what it can seem online

Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

An experiment with a visual element of an angel and demon combined. Expanded to show how that element can be built up to different visual effects.

Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)

Slight Variation on above. I was hoping to get the image to interlock with itself in a sort of Escher like way. That's how the background was created. Sort of like a weird paisley pattern.

I like this process of portraying the duality of black and white, angels and demons. One way I would build on this sketch for the final submission is to take one of the "units" and focus on making that into a composition alone? And then having the texture really smaller in the background. That would be a good start for a composition, what do you think?

Can I just validate what you thinking? If I can make the focal point the singular unit and use it to make up the detail of the background (in a sort of Escher styling) that what you were suggesting?
