long distance love by joulee long distance love by joulee

Once upon a time, there was a boy on earth who liked a girl on the moon... He was good at making paper airplanes. She was suppose to put the stars up in the night sky. He was industrious and hardworking. She liked to take naps. This is their story of a long distance love.

My entry for the Multi-Monitor Mayhem contest~! I actually do use two monitors, but I don't have a multi-monitor wallpaper, which is kinda sad, so I wanted to draw something that could replace the flying giraffee [link] (my current wallpaper ^^). I've always liked the idea of having two related but different pictures on each monitor, so that's how the idea of a boy on earth and a girl in the sky came up. As for the long distance love idea--many of us live so far away from each other, and yet we can still communicate, share words and pictures and stories and bits and pieces of our lives with one another--all through the use of our computers. So with this wallpaper, I wanted a reminder of the computer (and sites like DA) as a way to form connections and relationships. :)

I wish I had a bit more time to spend on this, as the clouds are totally sucky and I would have liked to add in some more detail, but... had a plane to catch to NYC and I sure wasn't going to spend my spring break vacation staying inside and finishing up artwork. ^^ This was roughly sketched in my sketchbook, inked and colored mostly in Painter 7 and a bit of Photoshop CS2 with a wacom tablet. Hope you like! :heart:

Oh... and uh... full view to see the actual wallpaper. ^^ I just cut out the characters for the preview since the default preview would have been too small to see anything.

long distance love by =joulee is quite a different illustration of a long distance relationship. Cute characters, a lovely color theme and an interesting format make this piece a true treasure ! ( Featured by nighty )
