So the story idea I had for this drawing (almost a year ago) is something like this:
The two people already know each other from some time ago. They were kinda in love but never told the other person how they felt. Now they meet in the city as they turn the corner and they're people with their lifes already made, and on top of that very different ones, like... musician and lawyer maybe (I didn't give much thought to his job, something like that, very 'society approved'). So when they see and instantly recognize each other the old emotion starts to come to surface.
After I started doing some sketches that failed I was watching a movie and heard the song 'One and Only' by Teitur and the lyrics were just perfect for the scene, so I took it as the song of the drawing (and title). Here's the beginning:I've been wishing on a star but I never could have imaginedI would land just where you are after all this lonesome travellingTook one look in your eye, reached out to hold your handThis is when I realized what I could never understandDo you want to be my one and only love?
Then I got tired of the song and I also abandoned the drawing again, because it simply wouldn't work out and... watching another movie I heard a song that heped me finish it (although the lyrics don't fit this time, I like the melody a lot more): 'Half-Life' by Duncan Sheik
And here it is, finished, almost like I pictured it at the beginning. Instead of drawing the background I took a photo of the internet and edited it a bit. Here's the source:evgrieve.com/2013/08/photo-tec…
I must admit the idea came a bit from my personal life; so some other songs that go along well with the feeling I want to transmit are (in some I only took in mind melody and not lyrics):
Better than nothing and Summer Begs, by Sarah Jaffe
Don't go away, by Oasis
Go and Perfect, by Smashing Pumpkins
Greens and Blues, by Pixies
I miss you, by Blink-182
Just Tonight and You, by The Pretty Reckless
Over the Love, by Skunk Anansie
Alternate World, by Son Lux (listening to this one I somehow feel like what will happen next in the scene is something else. Like, they'll just keep on walking and continue with their lifes as they are now)
Choose the one/s you like to look at the drawing, but they're all beautiful songs so check them all out.
