Fanart: The key to my heart - DD


Badge Awards

Update: April 27, 2021:
OMG, I just saw that I received my 7th DD yesterday and this a few days before my birthday! :wow: An early bday present from the DA staff! Thank you so much for featuring my artwork as a DD Ellysiumn *woot woot* :party:

:blackrose:  SIXTH PERSONAL ARTWORK OF 2020 :blackrose:
This image is not available for licensing.

This artwork was specially made for the contest: Photomanip Fan Art Contest, hosted by :iconcrphotomanipulation:

:blackrose: from the movie: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN :blackrose:
Several ideas popped into my mind for this contest, but I have chosen the PoTC movies.
Why? It was like years ago I did a pirate themed artwork and I thought it would be a real challenge
to work with the octopus instead of dragons like I am used to. I first wanted to work on a scene with Jack Sparrow,
but I :heart: the idea of giving Davy Jones and Calypso (Tia Dalma) their love from before the movies happened.

This was by far the most difficult manipulation I have ever made...

Here you can find the BEFORE and AFTER:

I swear to God this is the most romantic episode from the Pirates of the Caribbean. Even though the couple of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley is adorable, the whole story of these 2 is way more dramatic. I was hoping that Captain Jack Sparrow would find a lover too, lol. In any case, I have watched this movie 1000 times, and I still could watch it over and over again. If you’re looking for HD quality website where you could watch it, then here you go By the way, nice picture! I like it!
