Fight the Good Fight by circathomas05 Fight the Good Fight by circathomas05
This is a poster design that I feel represents a lot of different things. First of all, "Fight the good fight" comes from 1 Timothy 6:12. It's an awesome verse, and you should read it! If you don't have a bible, go to www.biblegateway.com, and check it out. The main idea behind this design is the importance of purity. The ring on the hand is a purity ring. With society the way it is today, it is a major struggle to stay pure in the sight of God. There are so many temptations out there, but for men, I'd say one of the major ones is lust. The difficult battle against temptation is one not fought alone or in vain!

marvelous!!!
i wear a silver ring on my right hand just like in this pic.,.,and just to represent purity.,as u typed.

when men wear a ring on the left hand.,it meant.,matrimony.,.but on the right hand.,means.,purity for God.

very well done!!!

Thank you very much for your comments! I'm so happy to hear that you're committing yourself to being pure for God! I happen to wear my ring on the left hand, which (for me at least) represents not only my purity, but also the symbolism that I have committed myself fully to the Lord (as in marriage), and that we as Christians are the bride, and Christ is the bridegroom!

I want this on a shirt :3 Just saw another dev that I wanted on a shirt too :XD: I like the purity ring, though I at first didn't understand it. I agree with you on the lust problem - but I think that women also have it pretty tough. Our body image is plastered up all around the place - and that doesn't help us OR men :shakefist:

God's blessings :)

I feel ya! The only reason I didn't mention women with lust, is simply because I am a man, and can't really speak for women. I know that it's a problem for both genders, and that we need to work with God to stop it! Thank you so much for your comment, and for your insight! It's a blessing having other Christians on deviantART to talk about these types of things! God bless you as well!

Very cool. I really like the concept, and execution. If you're at all interested (going off of your art), I made a piece that graphically depicts the second coming. Comment if you like it!

I really like it and the concept behind it, but it might be more effective if it was a left hand instead of right. When I first noticed the ring, marriage occurred to me, but when I noticed it was a righty, I thought that maybe it was just a "fashion statement" (as in, the person just happened to be wearing a ring when the picture was taken). I think a left hand would make the message a little clearer. :)

I thought the same thing... There's actually a funny story behind this. I took the picture of a roommate's hand. I wasn't really thinking about it when I took the picture, because I saw the ring and figured "Oh, purity ring... left hand." Clearly this is not the case. I can easily flip the hand around, and probably will. I didn't realize it was the right hand until I noticed it at our accountability group a week or two ago.

Good job, though if the ring is supposed to be more prominent, it just barely stands out. What I think you could really improve on, though, is the wrist. The arm stretches out a bit too far from the text, and while the fist has a punch of detail, the wrist is just a flat slab. It wouldn't seem so empty and unnecessary if a vein or tendon would give it a bit of depth. Even in that case, I think it would work better if a little shorter. :)

The message is excellent, however.

Thank you so much for the critique! I worried about the same thing. When I took the picture, my roommate's hand was all dirty, so there was a lot of detail there and not on the wrist/forearm. I'll definitely try adding some detail/texture to see what I can come up with. Thanks again!

Were you trying to emulate this?

The original a.) has a way cooler message than "purity" in "God's eyes"
b.) is the original -- 'nuff said, and
c.) is just more attractive to look at.

:C

I guess that's all in the eye of the beholder... I won't argue about something that's entirely subjective. And while I haven't seen that before, I can agree that it is a very good piece. Males (and females) who have devoted their lives to God, often feel the message of purity is something very important, it's a battle. Also, when comparing two different works that are conveying two enormously different messages, it might be a good idea to express more than "it's just more attractive to look at." If you feel that there are actual ways in which I can improve on this individual piece, I'd be more than happy to take those thoughts into consideration. Thank you for taking the time to comment on the art.

Two works conveying enormously different messages that happen to look extremely similar.

I don't know. There is more power in the original -- the slightly tilted angle of the fist, the tighter composition, the colors, everything just seems bolder and more energized.

Your composition seems a little too straight-up and plain. Kind of flat, I guess.

I'm sure neither of our works are the first to utilize a tightly-balled fist, and I'm sure neither of them will be the last. You're entitled to your opinion, and I'm entitled to mine. Thank you for your comments, however!
