*** Well, someone begged me to enter this in the contest, so I am. I don't think I have a chance in heck in winning, but so be it... ***
There is an official contest going on in the emoticon/doll community. The theme is "Warm Summer Nights."
I'm not entering the contest, but
when I heard the theme, this is the first thing that came to mind. One of those warms evenings with the window open and a cool breeze coming in. It makes for lovely romance.
I wanted to pixel this out to see if I could get the dark room, light source, and shadows down. It's not perfect, but for something I did in about 20 minutes, it's not too bad either.
I do have to admit that I have been thinking about a similar scene lately. The honeymoon of 2 characters in a story of mine. They elope in Vegas, so the theme of a warm summer night totally applies.
I hope no one finds this offensive. I didn't mean this to be a racy piece.
As with most of my smileys, you may use this on and off dA, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. If you do use it for something, it would be nice if you could comment and let me know. It encourages me to make more smileys if I know people are using/enjoying them. Please note, this piece is NOT available for commercial use.***
