I've been meaning to do a painted version of this scene for some time now, and I actually only recently remembered that I had intended to do so! Thankfully now my skills have progressed enough to make it more or less how it appeared in my head :)

Photoshop CS4

Jonas & Anya from The Phoenix Requiem [link]

Edit: Made Anya's arm less anorexic and her neck a little thinner. Also, full download version is now bigger & suitable for wallpaper :)

This is absolutely beautiful. The title just simply stunned me, and the actual image no less. Beautiful atmosphere. I can feel the serenity of the couple just seeping onto me. Amazing execution of an amazing idea. :airborne:

The lighting on this is amazing, and I love the BG, not to mention how lost in the moment the couple is, as well. :love:

I spent most of yesterday reading your amazing comic and kept reading until about 3 in the morning when my laptop died haha. I've just finished it this morning, it was the first thing I did when I woke up... and I must say that I'm feeling quite depressed about these two right now. What have your incredible characters done to me?!! haha I love them :love:

I really adore this, your artwork is beautiful and I know that you can only get better :D
