Internal flame is a poetic image that encompasses love, life and death.

The melting candlelike/chocolate appearance is symbolic of life, or the passing of time. Just as the candle/chocolate melts, so does our time on earth.

The love they share is eternal and represented as an internal flame when the lights dim. An everlasting flame. They choose to spend their lives together.

The dimmed light version utilizes both translucency and negative space to emphasize the silhouette of a warm embrace.

The selection of flora is also deliberate. The plant is called an Everlasting and perfectly represents the narrative of my image.

All of the candle wax/melted chocolate was sculpted in Zbrush. The entire scene was lit and rendered with Cinema 4D and Octane Render.

I just want to say that I love that the position the figures are in is a hug. Whenever I've received a genuine hug, it feels so surreal and yet ends as quickly as the first moment of embracement. Especially as a guy, I cherish these moments.

Hi, Travis. I am Derrick. First of all, this artwork is truly beautiful, I love it so much! I sincerely ask you to consider my offer and it'd be my honor to own this piece of artwork of yours. This artwork has presented such a deep meaning that I felt resonating with, and it's a work that I knew I couldn't miss. I haven't owned any digital artworks yet since I just joined the community a week ago, so it will be my first if it actually happens, and I'd be very honored. However, amazing work!
