The grass is always greener....
....on the other side of the fence - which is what i have tried to portray in this composite. I have gone for a more simple, literal approach, which relates to everyday people, situations and lifestyles. On the left hand side is the normal side, where there is a nice normal home; the lawn is nice and tidy, not perfect but still green; a nice, old, faithful dog and a nice, old, faithful wife. There is a lot of love on this side of the fence. On the other side of the fence, however, is a new, fancy house; a dog that is a lot nicer looking; and a hot looking chick in hardly any clothes who is posing on a chair, and lush, green, untidy lawn. There are love hearts on both sides - the ones on the normal side with 'love' written on them show that there is love on that side of the fence, and the ones on the other side of the fence indicate a sense of lust and heartbreak - lust because it is thought to be love but it really isnt; and heartbreak because in the end you will be disappointed that the 'Other Side' isnt what it originally seems, which is what the little devil is put in to portray.
I kinda run out of time so some of the pen tool work on some of the elements is a bit dodgy, but other than that im pretty happy with how it turned out.
