The Bond by stevegoad The Bond by stevegoad
Interesting story behind this piece, the original got deleted because I felt I needed a fresh start so this along with 2 years worth of art got deleted. It was featured in ImagineFX and I've had inquiries about it after deletion so it was always a reminder of a bad choice. Luckily I had some low res copies online that I used to resize and repaint.

Lesson learned? Never react on emotion and it's never too late to go back and rebuild what you've destroyed. It's also good to listen to your wife when they tell you it isn't a good idea. :)

I've deleted art before... and man... It's not so much of a great idea...

As usual Steve, I am impressed. You are always expanding your skills. :) :heart:

Well, I don't know about the original, but I'm loving this one, especially the intensity in her eyes. Having the background out of focus only serves to enhance the effect and I love how she and the bird both focused on the same point. Really helps support the link between them. Great work!

I can't even begin to express how much I love this, I mean, I loved the first version, but somehow, you've been able to take that and make it so much more!!
Like the first version, this is at the top of my all time favourite uses of stock :love:
