This is a recreation of an artwork/concept I first created back in mid-2009. I believe this is my fourth or fifth version of it and it is by far the best which is saying something because the last version was one of my favorite artworks that I’ve ever created. I changed several things from the last version including the poses of both characters. My main problem with the other versions were the poses which others were being misinterpreted as “forced” and other things which were never the intention of this piece. It bothered me but, until now, I wasn’t sure how to go about fixing that. I think with her now caressing his face and pushing back his hair, it looks more “mutual” and “consensual”. I also changed the setting, did the postwork differently, created a better lighting setup, and changed a few other things with the characters and their elements. It was a lot of work to get every little detail looking just right but well worth it as this is again one of my favorites.
This took quite a while to get right because I kept noticing little things being wrong like a sleeve not quite in the right place, etc. I had to keep fixing and spot rendering then cobbling it all together in postwork. I didn’t use Poser’s depth of field but instead created the effect in Photoshop. The light setup was created with IDL and some added traditional lighting including two specular lights (I normally use only one). I used some of my old postwork tricks in Photoshop to enhance the image, used a filter or two, and adjusted the colors with an action plus added an overlay or two. I really, really like how this all turned out. I lost track of how much time I spent on this, but every moment was definitely worth it.
