This is an immensely personal and emotional piece I made on a literal whim during a stream a few weeks back - to the point where I actually set out to make a completely different picture when I started working on it.
Inspiration struck while I was laying down the lines to compose the piece, and the poses I ended up with seemed to resonate more with this idea than the one I set out to make. I've uploaded a detailed timelapse of the process on YouTube, which you can watch here.
You know that I usually like to go into detail about what's going on in a piece and, wherever appropriate, what its significance is. In this case, however, it's not something I feel prepared to talk about just yet. Hopefully soon.
In any case, I hope you like it. 💝
