Every now and then I do a serious one.
I hope you feel the real emotional element in this one. I started out wanting it to be moody piece. I saw them as separate, but equally detached. After I finished him, and I was happy with the fact you couldn’t really read his expression, I planned on making her kind of aloof, but then a sadness kind of happened as I was working on it – I tried to keep it subtle, but undeniable.
I am pleased with the outcome. I was originally going to call it, “The Eternal Struggle,” because I was seeing it as the yin and yang thing. Different but equal, but she seems like she’s losing. It’s not equal at this moment. Not sure what to call it yet.
