What is Love? by Cruel-One What is Love? by Cruel-One
In select Theaters August 7th

To me, true love is where you can be mad at a person, and still feel extreme affection towards them. You Love them no matter what they do, and for who they truly are. You know you love someone when you feel like they're all you need in your life, or rather, they are your life. Sex doesn't matter to you as long as you have that special someone in your life. That is what I think true love is.... and I'm so happy I've found it for myself... <3

PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION!

My entry for the Paper Heart contest!

It's my first contest so.... please wish me luck! :D
Got the idea when I was going through the entries, and it just came to me when I saw a little picture of headphones making a heart :3

Oh! And just ask if you want detail shots :3

Tools/Props:
an old notebook
Crayola crayons
ballpoint pen
Skullcandy headphones

Paper Heart

What does love mean to you?

It's too bad that this one didn't win. =) I liked it, I really did. (I'm not old enough to enter contests, so I just X out of the contest announcements most of the time. XD) I'm not sure what the movie was/is about (I didn't even know it existed o.O), but I think this would make a great movie poster if it had something to do with teen romance. =D

X3 Eeeh, this is really cute. I love it, both in composition and the feel behind it.

But you may need to do something about the brand names (like Crayola and SkullCandy), maybe. I'm not a professional, so I don't know if it's frowned on. XD Nor do I know if this would be considered 'free publicity' for Crayola or SkullCandy. Just a thought, though, in case.

This is a great idea. I love how it incorporates both the "paper" theme, the love between two humans, AND the love of an object (here the headphones, and by metonomy, music). Great work! I hope you win.

cant crituque. but I think that the desk was just bad angling. I donno. it does give it a real world feel. but I love it! its an awesome movie poster. I love it.

I don't know why the angle of the desk came out like that, it looked better in the original photo, but I wanted it to gradually fade darker the farther it was away =/

no you know what? this is the worst thing I've ever seen you create! it look like it took five minutes and a five year old could do better then you did!*sarcasm*

No.I love it. Its so adorable and cute. but the desk just made the picture flat. I think that to truly bring out the wow factor of this piece you need to eliminate the desk. take the picture above the pad of paper. Itll look so much better.

I think it's kinda stupid how only U.S. citizens can enter... but maybe it's because International shipping is a bitch D:

I like using crayons for little doodles and stuff... they're too hard to control when using for .... I guess you'd call them "professional" pics? or does "serious" sound better? . _ .
either way, you get what I mean xD
oh, and thanks! Cx

Thanks so much! I'm loving how it turned out! ; w ;

Do I really? Then again, I took my time writing it this time so people can read it, but if you look in some of my school notebooks it's kinda messy |D
I'm surprised I was able to spell everything correctly; my brain is fried from summer break... e _ e;;
