I don't really know what to say about it...
I thought it as a metaphor about Time and Times.

I let you find all the symbols and significations of this illustration.

It's beautiful. Ripe with metaphor; archetypes. I applaud your talent. ♥

I absolutely love the symbols of this picture especially the hands of the white figure. With its praying it can represent hope which is almost the only form of taking a look into the future. I also like the mischievous look of the red figure resembling some kind of devil which can represent the malicious nature of bad memories. The bridge-like thing then can be a bonding of the past but if so, then the white figure is not the future but the present but only together with the red figure.

Great work!:)

Knee deep.
Connection growth.
On the edge of sleep.

Looking back at the heat of a depth so deep. Timeless.
We want to get out. But somehow we're stuck. Emerged. Sticky. It's eternal.

I love this. Again and again and again.

NIN - We're In This Together
I've become impossible
holding on to when
when everything seemed to matter more
the two of us
all used and beaten up
watching fate as it flows down the path we
have chose

you and me
we're in this together now
none of them can stop us now
we will make it through somehow
you and me
if the world should break in two
until the very end of me
until the very end of you

awake to the sound as they peel apart the skin
they pick and they pull
trying to get their fingers in
well they've got to kill what we've found
well they've got to hate what they fear
well they've got to make it go away
well they've got to make it disappear

the farther I fall I'm beside you
as lost as I get I will find you
the deeper the wound I'm inside you
for ever and ever I'm a part of

you and me
we're in this together now
none of them can stop us now
we will make it through somehow
you and me
if the world should break in two
until the very end of me
until the very end of you

all that we were is gone we have to hold on
when all our hope is gone we have to hold on
all that we were is gone but we can hold on

you and me
we're in this together now
none of them can stop us now
we will make it through somehow
you and me
even after everything
you're the queen and I'm the king
nothing else means anything

At first I didn't believe this was digital. The texture is so wonderful! It's like they are worn out of the rock. One is at rest while the other is a quiet ball of passion, biding its time. The red woman is like clay(the many-eyed tree makes me think of Argus) whereas the other seems to be merging into the outcropping.

I can’t tell whether the clay lady is looking at me or the other woman.

WOW. Your work is just so detailed and beautiful...I love your unique style. <3 The figures really look nice the way they blend with the background colors but stand out too, I love the way it looks like watercolors were used...I'm no good with digital but it amazes me what people can do with it! :+favlove:

Thank you very much for your enthusiasm regarding my work.
Digital colouring is like anything else : you have to practice a lot before to reach a good level.

hmmm, interesting.
I'll give it a shot and say the cliff, the nothingness ahead of her is the future, while the sands are the past, the trodden road. The red being behind her is perhaps her brain, the branches and the eyes are her memories, "a look into the past". Her pleasant gesture and her hands in position for prayer are hopes and desires of a good future. My interpretation.
I like this piece very much.

Hum c'est pas trop mon fort de dénicher les symboles et je dois dire que c'est pas ce que je cherche en premier dans une illustration, bien qu'une étude bien menée et intéressante toussa je dis pas non... Bref, sans chercher plus loin que ça le trait est toujours délicieux et j'aime les textures ^^
