    Dorian's picture represents a tangible manifestation of evil, while his youthful countenance is a physical symbol of 'not judging a book by its cover'.

    They're both pretty subtle symbols within the novel, their many intricacies and layers proving to be a real intellectual stomping ground. I practically guarantee you an A* based on an analysis of these two much under-evaluated symbols.

    i would split the essay in two
    the Good side and development in Dorian Gray
    The evil side and development of Dorian Gray
    then perhaps chose like.. 2/3 of the main ways that you think are important for each of these sections

    He is essentially a good person (as seen in the innocent opening chapters, where he has his relationship with the actress, and seems totally awe-inspired, with a child-like naivete, by Lord Hnery) but he is corrupted by vanity, encouraged by Lord Henry, and the power that brings. Hence the later actress he rejects - it seems like a good act, but his picture takes on a stance of hypocrisy, showing his purpose behind the act (correcting the picture rather than doing a genuinely good deed).

    That's something that comes to mind, anyway. I adore the book, but I've never studied it in depth, only read it for pleasure.
