Something You Can Never Reach by vinegar Something You Can Never Reach by vinegar
hmm.. this one took me lot of time and effort..

basically the whole thing started when i listened to Marylin Manson's "Apple of Sodom" song and fell in love with it.. been listening to it since 2-3 days on constant replay.. which is weird. and which is also the amount of time this picture took me.

anyway, there're lyrics there "I got something you can never eat", but when I heard it I understood "I am something you can never reach".. and that's what that picture basically tells. There is whole story behind it of course, but I'll let you figure out your own..

as for some tech. info: as usual, Painter 7 and Photoshop 7, no direct reference used. Spare me the comments about some flaws in male anatomy, i'm aware of it, but i doubt i'll change it, as i'm sick of working on this picture.. have mercy on me and know i still learn ;) used some textures for the sky though and looked up few male references too, of course. i also think the bouquet here was inspired by some wedding one i saw on photos.

hope you'll like it :)

Very cool. The hair looks really realistic,and I like how hers is different from his (hers seems more floaty). I really like the bouquet and her outfit, too. Amazing!

I love this! She looks so cold - a little upset, and a little untouched. He's looking directly at her but she isn't meeting his gaze.
The time it took to make this paid off...

i see no similarities except for the fact they're both topless. starting from his pose to anatomy, which in her case is better than mine.

well, she definitely doesn't resemble her in every picture, but i was reminded of her the second i saw that picture... not just the face, but the clothing somewhat as well

here are a couple that i think resemble her

looks lovely. I like the story behind it. Peronally I felt Apple of Sodom (or even Kinderfeld) is one of the better songs from MM. It has a very nice feel and atmosphere to it. Ever seen the life footage of it? It actually starts snowing at teh "so cover me in snow" -part.

I love the expression and the hair of the woman.
