Won't you let me know? by hanaraad Won't you let me know? by hanaraad
My entry in the 8 track Anime/Manga competition for deviantART's 8th Birthday ^^ Once I read the description I was keen on entering, it sounded like fun! I had already tried illustrating a song before with this picture. Violet Hill, I love that song! Off one of my favorite albums, track 8..... wait a minute... >.>
It already fit most of the requirements so I just edited it by adding two characters mentioned in the song who I was planning on adding to the image in the first place!
This is pretty much the exact image I have in my head when the song breaks down.

I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in the snow
All that time she was silent still

So if you love me
Won't you let me know?

If you love me,
Won't you let me know?


I'm really glad with how it came out, not many pictures turn out exactly how I picture them in my head.

Violet Hill is from Coldplay's latest Album, Viva la Vida.
Here are the full Lyrics to the song. Click on the "media player" under the Menù on the left to play the song.

EDIT: Made them bigger and added footprints :3

That's really pretty and, despite the fact that in my head the song brings to mind a lot of violence (LOL), this fits really well. :)

Yeah, I wanted to make them the central attention of the image. Also, you couldn't see the detail so well :/
Thank you! I wanted to try my luck and see how I go in one of the big comps!

Yeah, I actually haven't been taught any more photoshop after about March this year so any improvement since then would have just been self-taught :D
Thank you ^^ I'm glad my stuff is better than "funky" now, lol XD
