Melt my Heart by Picolo-kun Melt my Heart by Picolo-kun
Inspired by Icarus, who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. If he was in love with the sun, then this might as well be a story of forbidden love.



Revisiting these two characters of mine, hope you guys like it ^o^. This was a very experimental piece, I'm not used with a lot of stuff I tried to pull off here :XD: but I think it will eventually get better! There's a hidden black kitty there as usual :)


My dear patrons will get:

►High res image
►Brushes used
►Layered PSD file
►Step by step process

I basically make about $6,000-$8,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it………COPY AND PASTE...............HERE  www.GeoSalary.com

( I followed this seires and all the "drama" surrounding their relationship. I loved this piece the moment I saw it.) 

VISION: 5/5

I always loved this series of drawings. It was such an original interpretation of the myth. It's inspriing and heartbreaking at the same time. 

ORIGINALITY: 5/5

I am struck by the Yin and Yang imagery in this piece. Tradtionally, Yin, the dark swirl is associated with: shadows, feminity and the trough of a wave. Icarus being in grayscale speaks to his vunlernatility in this relatonship. He's in love with the Sun, wich represents brigthness, passion and growth (Yang). The sun itself helps many organisms grow. She provides Icarus with his first experience with Love, and in so doing helps him grow and mature - regardless of the danger that provide Icarus is willing to love her. 


TECHNIQUE: 5/5

Light/Shadow

Your use of light and shadow truly creates a stunning image. Interlocked together the eyes is drawn to the center where their hearts float towards eachtoher, but never quite reaches the other. 

Personality

I can feel each character's personalty shining through this interaction. Icarus's open, vunlernable stance. The Sun's closed off, scared body langauge. It's tells such a detailed story (even if someone hasn't seen the progresin of the series).

IMPACT: 5/5

I now it's pointless to root for them, but I do. They are such a dramatic and yet satisfying love story.

These two remind me of this bittersweet old Finnish song that's sung to children a lot. I found a rough translation that goes like this:

When sun had ended its journey,
the last sunray was just a moment
left behind her sisters
Dusk was creeping on the grounds,
the sunray with its golden wings
was just about to fly away from it
 
Only she saw a small goblin, coming towards her;
it had just come out of its cave
You see, a goblin cannot ever before nightfall
live upon the surface of the earth
 
They beheld each other,
the goblin felt in his chest
a warm feeling
He said: "You burn my eyes,
yet I have never in my life
seen something so wonderful!
 
It does not matter that your radiance blinds me
It is easy to wander in darkness
Come with me, and I will show you the way to my cave
and take you as my bride!"
 
But the sunray answered: "Dear goblin,
the darkness will steal my life away,
and I do not wish for death
I have to leave immediately,
unless I fly into the light soon
I cannot live a moment more!"
 
And so the beautiful sunray left, but still
as the goblin walks alone,
he wonders why one of them is a child of light
and the other one loves night.

Oh and great work, I love the whole series you've made about them :)

Yin-Yang... The composition is awesome!
But not right at all  Nana, look what I have and you dont!  . This is woman who should be dark and lightless side, while man/Yang is active and bright.
