Inspired to some degree by the song of the same name. I get inspired by songs frequently, but not always enough to actually finish a picture... so here's one that made it. I spent hours on the sky, then got fed up trying to colour the rest of it, and tried this instead. At least this way there's less of that pesky foreground to detract from the sky. I might still colour the foreground properly one day.

Actually, now that I think about it, most of the final look of this picture is an accident. The sky is so pretty and colourful because I was curious what the auto-levels function would do to it. Even the whole silhouette look only came about because I was trying to do something different altogether, and I decided it worked this way.

HAHA! AWSOMEST!!! I love, love, love it! ^^ The idea is really cool, actually, it kinda intrigues me. Anywho, your getting very good at backrounds, lad. You should drop me a hint, sometime, considering my backround abilities thus far. *dramatic sigh* One day I'll be able to draw... Yup.

Wow. Crazy sky 12 I think this would look really cool with some other rocks swirling around the two sillouettes.

How sweet. The backgroundish is really decent looking and the folk look pretty mischevious. (heeheehee...) So.

I love the background, but hate the silhouettes...

The sky is cool, i like the guy's hair. Not sure about the flying rocks and the person reaching for them.

This reminds me of a Jan Pienkowski illustration! Excelent job: Tatu forever (right?)
