Eva's Heart

FINISHED! :icondorkdanceplz:

Let me tell you the story behind this:
Friday evening I asked :iconburningbernd: to give me three nouns and one verb and I would try to make a short, simple photomanip out of these.
Well, after the first three hours of work I realized that this could get more work than "Bound" already was :D :D
In the end, I needed five days to finish it, and the pure work was about 20 - 25 hours I guess.
I am still not totally happy about the result, because it depends on everybodys monitor colour and contrast settings if it looks good or not. But hey - it looks good on mine, I am satisfied :XD:
By the way - the words :iconburningbernd: gave me were something like searching and confusion - it's clearly on the deviation, isn't it :rofl:

If you can't come up with any interpretation, just think of EMANCIPATION!

A little before and after of Eva is coming soon :-)

By the way - Eva is the German name for the Eve of Adam and Eve!

Also ich finde es ganz hübsch, aber ohne die beiden Mädels and den Seiten hätte ich es besser gefunden ^^"

Why have I not faved this before?? This is absolutely gorgeous, I especially love the tones you've chosen!

:giggle: Thank you so much! It's still one of my favourite manips :-) Maybe it's a bit too dark on your screen, that manip is one of the most bitchy ones concerning screens ^^ but I'm so glad you like it!!! :hug:
Exillior's avatar
I think it's looking good on my screen :nod: And, oh, can I ask, is there a meaning to the choice of name in the title?
carpenoctem410's avatar
You mean Eva? Hm ... It's my mothers name, but that's not why I chose it ^^ I like the name, and Eva is the German name of Eve from Adam and Eve. I thought of that name because there's the apple in the picture ... and then I thought further and recognized, that taking the apple was also an act of emancipation of women, when you think of it. And the Eva on my manip is also bound to a spell, to people, she's not free - but in her heart, she's free, that's why you can't tame her :-)

I love the explanation -- I'm really glad I asked! I love that name, actually, but I don't know why. :XD: Now, having read your explanation, I feel that I have even more reason to love it :love:

:love: :hug: Thank you!

Eva really is a wonderful name. it sounds like a strong and beautiful female, I love that :-)
Exillior's avatar
It does feel like that! I have a character from a few years back, named Eva, she is very strong-willed and determined -- and very beautiful. She definitely fits that definition!

Some names just represent something. And Eva is one of those!
