"Back-Against-Back:Lovers at War". This one started out,I did not know exactly how to show the couple fighting.Wanted them DARK,for their argument,anger.But I wanted the dark shade to be HOT,because they are still in love;that's why the anger.(so,dark orange.)The part where they are joined,the backs(shoulders)is also the part they put up AGAINST each other;and that is where they have their love(red hot,plum,dark red,burgandy shades)and the white,for spiritual love.
I was trying to show,in colors,and line,how people in love put that love AGAINST each other(backs)in anger,because that is what joins them,and is also why they fight.

It's just the "love-hate" concept,you all know it. It's a very clumsy picture,the way it's done.I am sure not a perfect artist.But,I liked the concept.

The feel of this picture is amazing. It totally does the concept justice. Awesome symbolism. ^^

Awww I really like this! I agree, its very paint-like and I think your color choice is fantastic! I love the concept and wish I could come up with something that cool. Very very nice!

Ahhh, that glow is really striking; it drew me in from the thumbnail to see what all the awesome was about. I appreciate the sense of texture going on here, and the colors are right nifty.

I think out of all the pictures I have seen you done, this is by far my favorite. I love your description for it; I keep reading it over and over and thinking how perfectly it fits with this piece. Great job.

this is great because the story you're trying to tell really shows instantly~ it's just nice to look at too. ^^

love the effect of the colors, from the neutral browns and greys to symbolic reds and whites. :D just beautiful!
