"...he leaves his lover, but he can't stand it and go down to get her out from the eternal dream..."
This is a reinterpretation of the classic tale "Cupid and Psyche" and based on the Antonio Canova's sculpture:[link]
I was trying to draw a kind of ficctional sculpture.
I've used many references, for the pose of both character I used a photo reference (in the photo refference it was two men), but I just used it for make "those stick-and-circle characters", you know...
The hardest thing was to draw the bodies as real as possible, you know, using some anatomy books and that... And using Michelangelo's David too, for the ilumination too.
Damn, this is an A4, and I should use an A3 for the details... I think that now I'm blind.....=_=.
Anyway, I don't like very much... I think I'm going to do the digital painting version.
