All my life I've longed to discover something as true as this is

Tom Collins and Angel Dumott Schunard from the Musical RENT. I love those two so much: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUY_st… :)

Everything about their relationship is so beautiful. I read in an interview with Jesse L. Martin that Collins was created with that backstory in mind, that he was always been rather shy and has never really been in love with anyone - until Angel came along. I wanted to capture a bit of that here, of Collins still being utterly overwhelmed by this beautiful, generous person showing him so much love; still not 
quite able to believe his luck. :giggle: I also meant to create some sort of snapshop of one of the way-too-few moments of happiness they got to spend together - a snapshot I like to imagine Mark took. :P
Collin's face especially gave me a lot of trouble, and many things are still not quite right here, but overall I'm really happy with how the picture turned out in the end! :la: Mental note to self: Use SAI more often. SAI is your friend.

tools used: Photoshop, Pain Tool SAI, a whole bucket of FEELS
