My apologies for stealing the title from Shakespeare, but it seemed fitting.

This is a little early for the occasion, but wanted to post it anyway.
On April 7, my hubby and I will celebrate being together 25 years.
Not our official anniversary, but one we feel more important.. this marks the day we fell in love.

We have been through many adversities, but through it all our love has held strong.
I dedicate this to my partner, friend, love and devoted companion.. Keith.

I would also like to thank those of you who have been sending me notes of encouragement.. it really does help get me going sometimes.

Now, if only the snow would go away and stay away.. enough of winter already!

Tech stuff:
I don't think I left anything alone in this. All textures were modified or replaced. Some just a little, like skins, others radically, including creating displacement and/or bump maps. Some I just designed my own or used shaders.
I know much of it is just barely visible, but the perfectionist side of me wants them done right.

Lighting proved to be a huge stumbling block. The Prince Albane skin is a beautiful and fine texture, but the wrong light can wreak havoc on it. Tended to make him look ill or hide the wonderful delicate details. I tried various lighting packages, such as lantios, but ended up scrapping those due to technical issues.. am still not totally happy with the results, but had enough of rerendering.. been working on the lights for over a week.

Edit: I uploaded a reduced size image as the full size was getting too full of artifacts from the optimization.

Congrats on your 25th anniversary, Sandy! My lady and I also celebrate both anniversaries, so I can relate to the sentiment.
This image is so astoundingly beautiful it took my breath away. I love the blue tone - it is the color of magic, after all. And what could be more magical than Elves in love?
A brilliant image, my friend. I'm looking forward to seeing more like this from you.

Wonderful render and composition, Sandy.
A very beautiful and romantic image. Fine craftsmanship in this.
And happy anniversary. That is a beautiful milestone.
And that is comming from a person who was married and divorced 4 times over 30 years #:o).
Being married for 25 years..takes a lot of..patience, understanding, mutual respect, room, flexibility, and much more. I think its admirable and beautiful that you've managed this.
A midsummer night's dream, is legendary, as Shaky himself.
Even the danish royal porcelain company, made a complete porcelain set, with all pieces, and named it..A midsummer night's dream. So no reason to feel odd about the is called... inspiration #:o)

This just sweeps me away with it's beauty! The colors you've chosen make the whole scene so mystical and ethereal. The posing is so real I expect to see them finish the movement and kiss .. sigh .. so romantic and beautiful.
Lighting is everything here, and you've acheived something of a moonlit look .. yet it's much brighter then moonlight .. it's fantastic and sets the whole mood wonderfully.
And the work you've done on the clothing and the accessories, I cannot even imagine, such awesomely beautiful detail ..
Sigh .. I love this.
Happy Anniversary Sandy, May the love you and Keith have for each other last for all eternity.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is an exquisite and witty play and the title of your composition fits in perfectly with this delicate and sophisticated image of intense beauty. Exceptional graphics and render.
