looking back is for the birds by bigbigtruck looking back is for the birds by bigbigtruck
Doodle/speed sketch to test out some new brushes and lighting effects. Still not getting the hang of this blue-tone and refracted light thing, bleh

Listening to & reading the lyrics of Elbow's "The Birds" prompted an avalanche of FEELINGS so this came out

oops TJ's tattoo is missing

Wait, I don't think I've seen this.

This looks like an AU-verse of "TJ & Amal: The Garden of Eden"
I'll stop now.

I love how different they are. The lightning effect looks nice, I think. Faces tilted into the shade, realistically.

The lighting effects are quite nice, I love the hazy, warm, and sleepy feel this has.
The deep colors are great too, and this is such a sweet picture.. With a touch
of anxiousness or slight distress, it seems. I really like it. :heart:
