Eternal Sorrow, Hoang Nguyen (2D)


Title: Eternal Sorrow
Name: Hoang Nguyen
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

Been working on this on and off for a while now. Started out using Tria markers (that was an exercised in frustration) I then took it into Photoshop and after many iterations, I think I got it. Maybe? let me know what you guys think?

Its about lost love or what could have been, or maybe a love that was never meant to be. Anyway, I wrote a cheesey poem and had it translate into simple Kanji. Here’s what it meant

Eternal Sorrow
Love awaits on the edge of eternity.
Reaching far; forgotten and long lost.
In the distance, beckoning.
Come away, away…
For there loves await; yearning, yearning…

Actually its allot longer than this, but I couldn’t fit it in. For those that need translation (Chinese or Japanese) I recommend my friends, they also sell allot of neat stuff on their site:


niice i love it :thumbsup:


Beautiful combination of texture and delicacy.


Beautiful. Reminds me a lot of the work of French Metal Hurlant artist Mobius.


Really nice work, man. You rock.


great work again!

the quality of the background is very good~
i like it~
4 star form me~~hehe


Thanks for your compliments. I got allot feedbacks about the hands been too big, so I did some adjustment. Also fixed the left thumb, looks a bit odd still. Oh well, I gotta stop going back to old painting and just moved on :slight_smile:


This is nothing short of beautiful. One of the hardest things to capture in art is a feeling and with the way you communicated this image the feeling overwhelms me. Wonderful work!


ohh my god… beauty image man… you have a great technique… congrats

Very very nice image man. I’m not sure about the gloves though, which seem at odds with such a delicate looking lady. They make the hands look too big but apart from that… sweet!
