The first thing I noticed about this when I saw it was the coloring; they're really rich and vibrant, and I almost feel the wind rushing in my face just by looking at it. The second thing I noticed was that massive, awesome scarf, and how dynamic and swirly it is; it's a real eye-catcher!
I'm really sorry for not leaving a comment the first time I saw it. Admittedly, I didn't really know what to say.
I think what attracts me the most to this picture is just the pure energy of it. The fresh, bright colors, the feeling and affection, the poses. This picture is only made sweeter knowing that the two characters are stand-ins for you and your significant other
I really can't even put a finger on why it's so dynamic or touches my heart so. I guess perhaps it's the optimism and the sense of adventure that this picture gives me. I will say that sometimes I've gone back through my faves to see this. It makes my day.
You deserve this, and I'm so glad that ^misskittyoooo accepted it
Wow. All the elements of this piece combine to make it fantastic. The colors you chose and the light...I can really see all of the intense motion and wind in the scene, and theres so much passion here. I agree with the person a few comments down who said its both "cute and badass", but I would take "cute" further--more like beautiful and evocative, and badass ~_^ I also agree with the person who said its more emotion than is usual on DA. Sure there are a lot of pieces that are extremely emotional, but there are way more that are fluff. This piece is fantastic and expresses a clear, passionate and universal emotion with flair and uniqueness, not to mention a gorgeous angle and fantastic color and light!!
