It's hard for me to meet the line, still too long with 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Done with Photoshop and lots of custom brushes.

My second entry, yay, and my first atempt at anything comic-like, the idea here was to have both wedding rings glowing, giving a double meaing to the term, "I couldnt live without her" I had wanted to give it a consistent look and a proper flare around the sun, aswell as glowing wedding bands but time would not permit.:sad:
