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:

Really beautiful work - when i first looked at it, before i read the poem, i thought of Ophelia from "Hamlet," and then i was reading the poem, i thought how it was like Ophelia in reverse.  The woman, still alive, grieving for her lost love, wishing to be with her lover - but then in the poem it turns out to be her sister.  The poem is very beautiful, i love the haunting refrain.  I've run so much, lately in my life, into the wall people put up against so called negative emotions.  But is it appropriate to be "happy" when a loved one dies - no, it's appropriate to grieve.  The composition in the art is really interesting, the way the sleeping woman is very clear and in focus, and is well centered, yet the forest she's in is slightly out of focus.  The woman in the water, as the composition slopes down, is very sharply delineated too, but at first i didn't notice that, because of the dreamy quality of the lighting.  It's like this sleeping woman is in another realm - while still in here bed - and in this green place she CAN lie with her sister, and her grief melts with her love, as she melts into her sister.  Really lovely.

i love the emotion of this piece. The poem really suits the piece as well. I really love the colors and cool hues. The serene expression looks great too. I really like the interesting concept of the reflection. the title also adds to the overall atmosphere.

I love it. beautiful work!
