Gas masks scare me. It only takes a thought about their purpose. However, whilst researching for this picture it would appear a lot of people have a fetish for gas masks. I couldn't say why, but I guess that's why they're called fetishes. Each to their own!

With this, I wanted something so normal (or rather so retro) as a husband kissing his wife before leaving the home but put an odd spin on it. Gas masks were the first thing that came to mind - you certainly can't kiss anyone whilst wearing them. As for the surrounding, well everything's post-apocalyptic these days so let's assume the world's end is nigh here. Taking something so odd and having to deal with it like it's the norm.

I guess the idea came from playing Half-Life 2 for the first time. Those CP's aren't your friends. And maybe a bit of Call of Duty 4, good game, but sick.

On a brighter note, you could say this shows love conquering all! Yes, I'll leave it as that.

I don't have any myself, but I've seen them in books I've read about the second world war. To be honest I couldn't name any of them, sorry!

I am so in love with the way you do your shadings. Even the clothes look amazing.
Your background is perfectly done as well.
I hate doing backgrounds, they seem pretty difficult to me. But you know how to do it. 
Awesome work!

Of course the drawing itself also catches me. ;) I really like the scenario and the way you pictured it.
I am very into such post-apocalyptic / weird stuff. <3

I would also love to see a tutorial of yours ;)

Thanks for a nice comment and taking the time to write it!

I hate doing backgrounds as well, but they can add a lot. This background is so simple though, just some repeating wallpaper pattern and then I blackened bits out :) Other than that, it's just a flat wall. If I did it again I might break some of the wall down to show a broken city behind it… but I couldn't be bothered ;)

As for tutorials, the closest I have is a time-lapse video of one of my pieces on Youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4772Dh…
Don't know if it's of any use? Might do a proper tutorial one year!

Thanks again :)

Great image.

I don't think gas masks are necessarily fetishistic. They're highly symbolic and of different things. In the past decade or so they've come to symbolize defiance. As protests have grown larger around the globe the police response in many countries is to use poisonous gas against people. The civilian's response to this has often been to don gas masks thus defying the state's attempt to quash resistance. They can also symbolize anonymity, air pollution and much else. The sexual fetish use is about hiding someone's face and turning them into a sex object.

Great points - thanks for taking the time comment :)
I just guess a lot of it is negated by people saying "Gas Masks are sexy" and such... but I personally much prefer the take you've given it here. Anyway, thank you again and I'm glad you like them image!

I love that period in time... the 50's, especially 50's Americana were so fake, but with that came some fantastic visuals of the happy post-war life we have. I must draw some more...

Actually, the largest is 30x40... and that's what I ordered. I won't be able to have it framed and on the wall until I move this summer, but I'll remember to send you a pic once it's up in the new living room. ^_^
