Finally a very personal piece.

Being the most beautiful bird in the world, she is locked inside a cage. One day a snake, who transformed from a demon, brings her a key that can open the lock.

'You will need to sell your soul to me if you want freedom', says the demon.

What is her choice?

''Selling my soul to you would be like moving from one prison to another'', she replied turning her head away from the snake.
''But are we ever truly free?'', the snake asked.
''We are free as long as we can chose.''

Delightfully! This is the most amazing work at DA, which really impressed me. Yes I like many works of different artists, but this is the only one that makes one think. Think about the composition and colors of chiaroscuro, the discreet eye not because of excessive brightness, catchy story and quality execution. Excellently, in particular I would like to mention the technique, fine work, the fragility and restraint, and the main supply, respect to the Viewer. Continue in the same spirit, such work should be worthy of attention.
(Sorry for the curve it, English language, know very bad)

mmm to be honest.... I DON'T KNOW!! LOL.

I think if I was her I'd stay in the cage. But if I was going to write a story, she will choose the demon's offer :P

As with every birth there is always death. Many believe that once you die your soul fly free or in this case it is devoured by the demon. Now the demon has born from something so it must also die somehow. I believe there has to be balance to everything and also ancient stories tell the classic battles of heaven vs hell. Now because the demon had the girls soul it can be freed once again from the demons cage (body) by killing the demon. What the girl must do is that she has to talk to a person who she knows becomes an angel. When that angel is born she can do something to free that girls soul from the demon. :) You asked so I answered.

It's beautiful and lovely~

You SHOULD paint feathers; they look absolutely lovely here~

Also; the girl would receive more freedom if she denied the demon. Because, if she were to sell her soul...she'd be nothing more than a puppet for the demon to play with.
