A pretty weird but exciting commission here from ~Vitane ! It's Ralph and Jack Merridew from Lord of the Flies, with the Lord of the Flies itself in the middle.

Commission info: [link]

Lots of symbolism from the book here! Ralph's got the Conch shell and his Cutie Mark is fire, the thing he is obsessed with making. If he were in color I think he'd be gold. Jack's got a bunch of face and body paint on to show his wildness... and he's got an arrow Cutie Mark because of his violent nature. I can see him being red in color. And the Lord of the Flies is wearing Piggy's glasses...!

Anyway this was FUNFUNFUN so I hope you all like it~

Very nice drawing, I'm not sure that I agree with the pig's head (which personifies the Lord of the Flies) wearing Piggy's glasses however, because in the novel, the Lord of the Flies (which is a literal translation of Beelzebub, a demonic, satanic figure in old biblical texts) allegorically portrays the intrinsic  evil which resides in the psyche of all mankind, and the loss of innocence, and seeks to promote all kinds of actions and ideas conducive to the machinations of the Id, which is portrayed as Jack Merridew. Piggy on the other hand represents the superego, which seeks to promote idealism and forward thinking, rather than the primitive ways of the id.

Hey, sorry about that last message. I had just gotten yelled at and was in a bad mood. After actually looking at the picture and reading the description, I actually think that it looks pretty awesome. Once again I'm really sorry and I hope you can forgive me.
