I decided to enter the Doppelganger contest and this is the piece I am submitting. I've had this idea for awhile now and the contest was the motivational factor I needed to get it done. I am mimicking the style of *Davenit and I have to say that there is quite a bit of pressure trying to create something that would match his high standards.

About the piece, there is more to this then just the old cliche "Listen To Your Heart". I won't really go into details as I wish viewers to draw their own conclusions but suffice to say that even the shadows are there for a reason.

Disclaimer: For some, seeing this piece might cause you to hum an 80's tune and believe me, I've had it playing in my head all day and I am quite tired of it! If you fall victim to this, I apologize! :p But this piece really has nothing to do with that song.

Please, comment and critique!

Aww, this is really romantic, and I like it a bunch. Music is one of my favorite things...and my heart sings for the one I love. This is a great way of expressing one's idea of "listening to their heart." I imagine the shadows though as a beware idea, because you don't know whats up ahead...But nonetheless, I still like it.
I wish I had a fluffy heart pillow and headphones so I could carry it around with me all the time. That'd be great! :D
But again, it's really cute, and I love it.

I like your interpretation of the shadows.

I'll let you in on a secret: the intention was to show that the part you listen to is bright and well and healthy whereas the part you don't listen to is dark and unhealthy. :)

Thanks for your great comment, it was nice to read. And thanks for the :+fav:

Thanks Jakob.

I do have an Ikea heart pillow at home that I'm planning to use for another shoot but this one isn't it. :)

They all seem to look the same, the pillows. Ikea is a wonderful place for such things. (:

Hands down. This is the winning piece. Not only did you mimic his style, you made your own twist from it, you didn't copy something he already did. GREAT job!
