This picture is certainly one of the most beautiful pics I've ever seen. It makes me cry (a little bit)...
This so so so touching, I've never seen something like this.
The author is simply incredible. You make Tintin so real, I thought it was a colsplay, and THAT's amazing.
Plus, I love the grass, especially the rose that Tintin is holding. The author has really captured the best moment of the emotion for make me cry. On top of that, I must say that I felt in love with the Tintin's emotion, I thought I can hear the cries. Tha's really a good job.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
32 out of 32 deviants thought this was fair.

All stars filled, because taking away from the fact it's Tintin for a moment, this is one of the most beautifully classic portraits of someone simply missing their parent. The background, the church (which is old and BEAUTIFUL), and just the whole slightly grey tone makes the sombre and lonely mood stand out even more.
Going back to Tintin, he looks so young here, but at the same time, he looks ... reserved? Which suits his character, of course. In some sense, it's like the background is reflecting him, rather then he's openly showing emotion.
It's absolutely perfect, really and truly.
