Omg original art~ A lot of the original art I do is based on a single emotion/vingette in my mind. I don't really have original characters but I'm kind of a romantic so this is kind of crap I think about LOL.
The only premise / background I have for this picture was that they promised they would come to these water falls, but now it could be too late. It's up to the viewer to decide the outcome..
This is simply amazing... just the feeling I get from looking at this. Although I do not know the characters' story previous to this point, I feel for them. Excellent mood setting! And I'm really loving the elegance and simplicity of the background. The whole look of this reminds me of a tragic stage play. And there's a hand coming out of the water! I am highly intrigued now.
I love how skillfully you've offset the beauty and tender romance of this piece with the slightly creepy/supernatural hand emerging from the water! That background is astonishing as well, for some reason it looks almost traditionally painted while the forefront characters look digitally crafted - intentional I'm guessing? Little details like the water soaking his trousers and the leaves on the surface show you've really thought this through as well!
