Contest of :iconlandofthesky: Once again.

description: My old idea for this picture was the past and future. Where Solas ( I hope I got it right) and Enki were controlling Souri and Roo's bodies to be together (Enki and Solas would've show themselves together above Roo and Souri), but in present, Gabby tries to take Roo back, but Roo has a confuse-interest grip on Gabby. While Micah glares at Roo and protects Souri by taking her away from him. In the refection of the dark water's would've showed the future of Roo and Gabby, and Souri and Micah will be together. While Solas and Enki would've been apart...but...that didn't happen. Souri's princess dress symbolize about her responsibility struggles of her royal roles in the family and Gabby's slave clothing symbolize his haunting past that still continues everywhere he goes.

I change the future into stars. The whole past story is still the same... beside no Solas and Enki above it. Instead, the confused struggle of the pairings, no matter how dark and troubling things get (water is the emotions they are sinking into). Their destiny is already written to be together in the stars. The stars have already fore saw it.

I did this sketch around July for LofS contest, but soon abandon it because money problems. My job came around and I wasn't going to make the deadline for it, anyway. But the sketch never stop calling for me in the back of the mind...

Finally, when I finished work. I started to do the commission and stories again...but there...lingering in my folder is the sketch. I did read that the contest's deadline has change to Sept 1...but I had conflicts to do it or not. I was actually wasn't going to do it, since I won't be able to do the other half of it. I wanted to show the past and future of the couples. The Future of the lovers come together in the reflection in the water...

After few more conflicts with it, I gave into the picture...X.x I thought I'll finish it...but time isn't with me, so I had to finish it no matter what...I wish I'd spend more time with it...but I hope it looks okay...T.T

Thank you for entering our contest at :iconlandofthesky:! :love:

This piece is really beautiful, there's so much to see with all of the details. Souri's dress is really detailed and lovely. You did a nice job with the hair, it's really well shaded. The dark sky, the water, and the outlines of the couples is really beautiful and ethereal.

Fantastic job!

Well first off. The art is awesome. The details on the dress, all that hair.. and holy crap did you draw ever star?  Just wow.

On the subject of it.. im not sure what viewers are supposed to feel.  Coming to my mind is that guy in the middle needs a boot to face, and maybe follow up stomping to impart common curtsy. 

You have young girl next to you, who seems underfeed, quite dirty, wearing a threadbare robe(good job on the robe btw) , and even has dirty wings.. You don't hold her wrist like your about to break it.

Some one doesn't have to be the love of your life to get some decent treatment... ehhhh im thinking on this waaay to much. Sorry about that.      

It's awesome.
