Contest Entry【Kuroro x Chieri】
Programs : Sai / CS5
Time : 6+ HRS
DO NOT POST ON TUMBLR FROM YOUR BLOG! REBLOG IT FROM MY OWN ART BLOG
Sorry for the inactivity. For the past 2 days, I've been working on this.
I really wanted to try something with a very vivid background, more detailed than I'm used to, so I could challenge myself. I wanted a sweet and romantic feel, but nothing too advanced since Chieri is shy.
I'm not completely happy with how it came out, but it's much better than I'd expected. LOL! Okay. Onto finishing commissions~
SYMBOLISMRomantic Lighting :
The golden orbs of light (or fireflies) were used to set up a moment where the viewer feels that time stops just for Chieri and Kuroro. I didn't want to over do it, so I only added in a few orbs and some rays of warm sunlight, so the place looks more secluded and secret, more personal for the couple.Heart-Shaped Leaves :
The vines at the top right have very subtle heart-shaped leaves on them. Used mainly as a connection to the title, Heaven's Secret Hearts, which are draped over the secret doorway. The Doorway :
Meant to symbolism the secret doorway to both their hearts, but it is only one doorway, which means that their heart has become one (the kiss symbolizing their union). Pink Flowers :
The flowers are the color of Chieri's outfit and they represent her blossoming feelings.Darkened Forest :
The darkened forest behind them helps to highlight the warm light shining on the couple. The shadows themselves represent the doubt and fear any relationship faces, though the shining rays cut through the darkness.
