Presenting you the result of my concept work at school~! 

The given theme to our art course was 'Moment of Happiness' and the pupils could choose their working style (group or solo) & on which artistic way they wanted to create the concept~
the new condition, however, was to document your thoughts & steps of your working process
I myself chose digital photomanipulation (no surprise, eh?); and I worked alone~

It would take a lot of explanation (I wrote a A3 page) how I came with this kind of Moment of Happiness
but to summarize everything up I wanted to show the 2 states (Euphoria & Antieuphoria) before & after the consumption of drugs~
this kind of happiness, however, is not created naturally, it's artificially~ thus why I named my artwork like this: Synthetic Euphoria

And I have to state that this image is currently my most complicated work I have ever made
(you can't even imagine how many times I've cursed in succession bc my programmes often crashed down, don't even ask haha)
But in the end I got the highest mark yeah yeah (now who own's the universe hohohoho, okay I stop now)

Original work's resolution is 4725x9765 and file size of the original image is actually around 49 MB, I've resized the image for better viewing!

Resources: Reine-Haru (Head), Burning-Liquid (Planet), Skybase (Sky), resurgere (Cosmos & Planet), LotusOnlineDe (Brain), B-SquaredStock (Desert), JadeRiverJR (me) (Clocks)
Thank you so much for viewing and feel free to comment! I love you ♥

05.07.2014: This is my last upload for a very long time on deviantART, and maybe my ever last work. Thank you everyone for making my stay for 2 years on dA beautiful ♥ Maybe there will be a comeback~ or not~ but it's not in the near future~

hmmm, giải thích hơi khó khăn, ở trường chị viết một trang A3 để giải thích ý nghĩa của cái này ~~
art là về việc hạnh phúc ~ nhưng bao nhiêu người dùng thuốc (drugs like heroine, crystal and so on) để có thể cảm thấy hạnh phúc
ở dưới là đầu EUPHORIA (euphoria = state of happiness), hình của người khi mọi người uống thuốc và đang cảm thấy hạnh phúc
ở trên là đầu ANTIEUPHORIA, cái hình của người khi thuốc hết tác dụng họ không cảm thấy hạnh phúc nữa và thành người buồn rầu

vì cái hạnh phúc này không bình thường đâu, chị gọi hạnh phúc này Synthetic Euphoria (synthetic=nhân tạo)

mong rằng chị giải thích như thế em hiểu được :)
