A little collage of my main emotions right now :)
These are: solitude, grief, love and hope.
I wanted to arrange them in a way so you can see, that they all belong together.
That's why greif, love and solitude are arranged in a kind of triangle.
I used always the same background, cause it shall reperesent me in this case. I'm always the same, I just have different emotions.
And in case you don't recognize the emotions:
On the left side is solitude, what should express the feeling of being alone. That's why the boy is walking away from the girl.
On the right side is grief. I intentionally placed only the girl there and nothing else, cause when you feel grief, you are always alone, notwithstanding how many people may be around you.
And in the middle is the love. I don't think, that I need to explain this one ;)
These three build the traingle. I placed the love intentionally above the two others, cause most of the times the love is just stronger and gives you strength.
The ivy comes from above (the direction of the love), what shall say, that love makes things alive.
But if the love is too weak, there is always hope. Even when you don't believe, that there could be hope.
It's always there, you just have to open your mind for it...
The text, that is engraved in the wall, shall represent the gathering of this emotions.
Yes, I guess, that's it.
Thanks for reading that long description and I hope, that you understood at least a little, what I was trying to say ;)

Oh and I know, that the frame looks bend. But the original frame is bend actually and I didn't wanted to change that, cause in my opinion it adds a special feeling to it :)

***had to re-create the room, as it was a pre-made texture. Used textures from, will upload steps. Don't like the feel of the image now, prefer knowing these things before i dodge and burn layers according to what's underneath...*****

I tried to be creative for this contest... so i picked the emotion "fear". Why fear? Well my uni is gonna start soon again and i'll have some nasty subjects... i don't really feel comfortable with that :( i fear them.
About the picture, the girl is lost in the desert... she's fearing to die.

Note: Check the girl's in full resolution, had some work making her dress and her skin look "dirty".
