This is a celebration image.
180 deviations for me! WOO.
AND
OVER 1,000 page views!
:¬O
...and why not make it "happy 18th birthday and happy video shoot" pic too? :XD:

Anywho - I've had this image in my head longer than I've been on dA. I just wasn't able to find the right models/stock to fit it right!

Takes the classic "Men are from mars, women are from venus" thing to the next level. I did a TON of work to this image. For the girl, I basically gave her a "painted" look, and the entire image is hand-burned; meaning I went in there with the burn tool to give things another dimension. Her dress is a combination of "difference" setting, and normal setting. It's surreal and neat...I love it. I had to replace the eye of the guy, because it was all white [since the model is looking WAY up] and so he has a new eye. It looks a little cartoony - but I think it fits his expression well.

Song listening to while making (or the one in my head): Across the Universe, SUNG BY Fiona Apple, the Beatles, and Jim Sturgess. Yes, three version of the same song. I only didn't put the Beatles first in that list, because the sound of Fiona Apple's voice suited my mood more :XD:

Don't ask for a print, please. That would be going against the stock-peoplez rules.
