If Heaven is Not Enough by Chocomix If Heaven is Not Enough by Chocomix
"heaven's not enough
if when you get there..
just another blue
and heaven's not enough
you think you've found it
and it loses you

you've thought of all there is
but not enough
and it loses you in a cloud"


Fan Art for the Korean Anime Movie "Yobi the Five Tailed Fox" It's such a sad story T_T And I know, it's a wolf, and it doesn't have five tails but well, lazy me. But I thought it was more about the concept. The dove representing the soul of her friend, which she accidently took with her to the place where souls go after they die, so his soul left his body. So it's all winter down there - Where the souls prepare to be reincarnated - and Yobi tries to rescue her friends soul and wants to send it back to the real world. And this is the scene where she begs the dove to fly! Fly high, but since it's so cold and she's already weakend she stays behind. They are followed by rabbitlike spirits - It's a very sad ending, but what exactly happens I'm not going to tell ;)

I really hope you like it :D

This is absolutely beautiful! The lighting especially is the aspect that hits me, you did a wonderful job of showing the light hitting the right places and it really focus the viewer's eye on the wolf and the sky that it's looking up at.
I like how you've made the snow fall in different directions and blur some of it and not other bits. The snow that's sitting on the forelegs of the wolf looks authentic, too.
Having the rocks in the foreground blurred really makes it seem as if it were a real photograph we're looking at (they may have been blurred in the stock, I'm not sure)!

I'm guessing the bird is a ghost or an angel or something because it looks faint and glowing, and it really looks like a savior for the wolf. I haven't seen the anime that this is based from, but now I really want to!


I don't make photomanips so I'm not an expert or anything, but I can't find a single thing wrong with this marvellous piece of art! You should be really proud of yourself mate :aww: x

From the credits I can see that you may have merged two images of a wolf, if that be the case, you did an excellent job of it. I didn't know until I saw the two separate poses.
I'm going to start off with what could be improved, the dove could be made a tad more visible. I couldn't see it at first. Also if the wolf is willing the dove to fly than I'd think that the dove should be closer to the wolf. Also, maybe try it with a different background, the angle of the trees kind of messes up the scene between the wolf and dove.
And now what I like: The lighting is perfect! It adds the mystic and intense feeling of the scene. The halo effect on the dove was a good idea (try making it a tad brighter). The wolf's pose is also a very good choice, when you look at it you see hope.

Love the detail of the snow billowing around the wolf! It's definitely the tiny realistic details that make a manipulation look, well, not like a photo manipulation, but a magical photo. :D

It is, isn't it? I did something similar in a manip once, though mine didn't turn out quite as good. :p
You're very welcome, looking forward to whatever you have in the future!

Mine isn't the best either. x3 This was supposed to be a speed manip, actually. xD But I removed soe of the snow, because it just looked wrong on some parts. I really need to practice that u_u But doing something simple was really relaxing. :) And the movie was a great source for inspiration ^_^ Drawing manes really helpes too (Since I do a lot of equine manipulation too) :3
Thank you!! I hope I wont disappoint you! :) :heart:

I've tried my hand at an equine manipulation once... and the manes.. I forgot a crucial step and they just weren't working right. /shame

But although I don;t think it's the best I have seen yet, it's a very sweet movie. c:
Also try watching "Leafie, A Hen into the Wild" which is so sad that I couldn't even make fanart p.p
But I'm glad that I could inspire you to want to watch it <3

wow that almost made me cry at the very end. I was not expecting it to end that way, and I kinda guessed that mr. shadow was evil, but I didn't think that he would steal the soul.

Yes! Me neither. I was kinda shocked too p.p And I was like "oh noes!" How can that be?! If you want to watch another great koreon movie you might want to try "Leafe a hen into the wild" I mean I ALMOST cried at the end of Yonbi..but at that movie, Ii was sobbing. x'D So cute, but well don't want to spoiler anything ;) There are so many great movies out there! :la:
Well, first I thought Mr. Shadow was a creepy dude, then I thought he MIGHT be nice, then I was just like "wtf.." and then "Oh noes!" D: xD :)

I love it too! When I first saw the picture I thought it is for another anime, "Wolf's rain". Because of the song is in the OST. The picture would be a perfect fan art for that too: sad story, snow, the main character is a white wolf.. :)

Aw yes! ;O; I know Wolf's Rain, I cried a lot when Toboe died ._. Need to do Fan Art for that too ahaha x'D But it's so sad, so I coudln;t really describe my feelings in one picture. xD But I love the OST! When I first heard it I started crying lol XD Since it reminded me so much. TOBOE~ T_T Thank you so much tho! <33 And I think Wolf's Rain needs to be a lot more popular, I still know people who've never heard of it! Even though it's such a fantastic Anime!
