'From Here To Eternity'

Entry for the 'Write Me A Love Song' Contest at celestial-luminesse
Inspired by the following lines from the song 'So Beautiful' by Savage Garden
'I have lost my illusions; I have drowned in your words
I have left my confusión to a cynical world
I am throwing myself at things I don’t understand
Discovering enlightenment holding your hand'

This song always reminded me of AsuCaga as Asuran was most affected by Cagalli's words throughout the story. This is my favourite picture of them, as it is not too mushy but still quite romantic!

About the wallpaper: I fell in love with this particular pose of AsuCaga when I saw the ending song and just had to make a wallie. The problem was that they are in their uniforms and I couldn't come up with a suitable background and I was not keen on vectoring a gundam :/
The Gundams: The picture felt incomplete without a gundam..so I decided to vector it and it took me more than two weeks to vector it. Both gundams were vectored from scratch and shading was done twice over the base colour - once for th shadows and the other for the sunlight. Freedom Gundam's colours are a bit messed up..but this is what suited the overall colour better.
The Background: It is nothing in particular, just a rocky place at sunset. I did not want to have a clear horizon as I was naming the wall 'From Here To Eternity'. Painted from scratch.

Scans Used: AsuCaga Here Gundam Here
Brushes: Rocks Here
Done in Photoshop CS3 Extended
Steps: Here

Comments and suggestions to improve on it are loved :D
Thank you!

    I'm seeing alot of jagged lines, mostly on Athrun & Cagalli's pants.
    Try adding some feather on your pen tool options to fix that, it should
    give a more smooth and soft line.

    It's been a while since I last saw an AsuCaga wallpaper. It brings me joy to see a new one and it's quite well made. The background is beautiful with those colors, especially the sky. However, the hills/rocks do not look realistic to me, a bit cartoonish in a way. I can say the same thing about the mechs too. I like the way you colored Athrun and Cagalli, but the jagged lines are a bother to see.

    ditto to what JCzala said that it's been a while seeing a AsuCaga wallpaper.
    Aside from what Kitten said...l think Cagalli's eyes and also the lineart in both of them are kinda off.
    Keep it up!
