I Long to be Like You by Aeirmid I Long to be Like You by Aeirmid
:new: Revamped.... new lighting, new tones, painted models and did away with awkward lines between photos for better blending. Hope you like. :heart:

---------

Stay low...
Soft, dark, and dreamless
Far beneath my...
Nightmares and loneliness

I hate me
For breathing
Without you
I don't want to
Feel anymore for you

Grieving for you
I'm not grieving for you
Nothing real love can't undo
And though I may have lost my way
All paths lead straight to you

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you

Halo
Blinding wall between us
Melt away and leave us alone again
Humming, haunted somewhere out there
I believe our love can see us through in death

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you

You're not alone
No matter what they told you, you're not alone
I'll be right beside you forevermore

I long to be like you, sis
Lie cold in the ground like you do
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you

And as we lay in silent bliss
I know you remember me
I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you...

~ Evanescence, "Like You"



Hope you like. xo

This is just amazing work! I love the concept, and the execution is just mind blowing. I love the fact that you stayed with colors that generally mean life, greens... earth tones and did not make this some Gothic image that clearly conveys death.

The small splash near the sleeping girls face in the water seems a bit out of place to me, and I do wish her hair were a bit more contrasted and the greenery were a bit more clear instead of being rather dreamlike/foggy... perhaps you meant it to be like a ray of sunlight... an awakening?

Overall, you did a marvelous job!!! Great work!!

Wow this is really amazing. I like the colours and the light on the two ladies, the way they are so good blended in the artwork. :love:

Your technique is always more perfect and I admire your works and I think this is one of your best, because it really looks like a photograph, so clean and full of details.

I love the softness of the grass and the way the girl in the water seems so natural and good placed there. I really think you did a great job on this work and i couldnt help to write you this critique!

Keep it up! :hug:
