Artwork Description

The older we get, the less likely we are to do something crazy and romantic. I've done some really crazy romantic stuff when I was younger, and I don't regret any of it. This one's for all you mushy romantics. Yeah, you know who you are.

For this piece, I wanted to evoke feelings of classic romance--like Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, but I also wanted it to feel modern, so I had him climbing a modern art deco styled building, and they're wearing contemporary clothes. I used Painter and Photoshop. You can see a higher resolution and close-ups here:

Ah, the originator of "Moonlight Lovers" and "Sythe Wolf." In one month, I saw three separate "deviants" post this as their own work on dA.

Dude, I'm no artist but you have one hell of a gift, this piece is quite possibly the single greatest artwork I have ever seen, it captures the general chaos of feelings love creates, and the utter abandon with which people do things to try and make sense of them, take our young Romeo here climbing a house for one kiss from his fair Juliet, it's the sort of stunt I would pull, take it from a hopeless romantic, this piece is utterly breath-taking.
