Reunion at Ostend Harbour - Homecoming - 1945 by KristinaGehrmann Reunion at Ostend Harbour - Homecoming - 1945 by KristinaGehrmann
Inspired by a popular song from the early 20th century.

Time would come for roll call,
Time for us to part,
Darling I'd caress you
And press you to my heart,
And there 'neath that far-off lantern light,
I'd hold you tight,
We'd kiss good night,
My Lili of the Lamplight,
My own Lili Marleen.

Orders came for sailing,
Somewhere over there
All confined to barracks
was more than I could bear
I knew you were waiting in the street
I heard your feet,
But could not meet,
My Lili of the Lamplight,
my own Lili Marleen.

- T. Connor (1944)

Medium: Photoshop and Wacom tablet
Time taken: estimated between 20 and 40 hours, spread over several days
References: [link]

Time for some truth! When I said this was inspired by "Lili Marleen", I lied. In reality it was inspired by the Tintin fanfiction "Homecoming" which you can find on archiveofourown.org and on the Tintin kink meme on dreamwidth.
So, yes, there's a Tintin version of this painting - to be precise, a Tintin/Haddock slash version, and you can see it on my fangirl blog: Ruined childhood this way
