Betrayal and Redemption — Art by Karthik

About this drawing

Another drawing based on an Illustration Friday topic.  The theme was "Sorry", and this is my image, inspired by the "Heroic Bloodshed" movies of HK directors like John Woo and Ringo Lam.

The movie I particularly took inspiration from here, was Lam's City on Fire.  Here, the two guys holding rifles are the bad guys, and the ones hiding behind the car are the honourable gangsters.  The bleeding guy is "Mark" and the one holding the gun to his head is "Ken".  Mark is injured, but he has betrayed Ken?s trust (he's actually an undercover cop).  Now the bad guys are going to kill them both.  Before this happens, Mark accepts his mistake and apologises to Ken (the "Sorry" of the theme), and asks for death (a Bullet in the Head)?

I have been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this
kind of house . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site.
Reading this information So i'm glad to show that I've a very good uncanny feeling I discovered
just what I needed. I most indubitably will make sure to don?t forget this web site and
give it a look on a relentless basis.
