Pont des arts by kawacy Pont des arts by kawacy
Contest entry for unknownsushi.deviantart.com/ar…
Characters from cartoonartist.deviantart.com/g…


※I drew the locks on separated canvas so I could make the details on them easier.
Here's the raw lock file I painted: kawacy.tumblr.com/post/5189066…
※The bridge called Pont des Arts in Paris, you can read about it here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pont_des…
I've never been there so don't ask me anything about the place, haha.

For :iconcartoonartist:,
I wish you the best birthday ever.
Hope this drawing inspires you and your soulmate.

Update on this The city cut the locks off this summer. There were so many that they threatened the structural integrity of the bridge.

They also have this going on in Florence. Except people clip them to the huge chains separating the sidewalk from the street. Love the guy's outfit, but the girl's outfit confuses me. It's like she wore 3 different types of lingerie at once. A bit too much going on there for my eyes. Still like all the ribbons and stuff thou.

We got back from Europe and I can tell you the locks are being put on every bridge we saw with mesh and it is happening in Italy, Spain and England. We also saw the locks put on a wild boar statue in Florence.

It seems that people are doing a ceremony about putting it on because in Paris there was confetti on the bridge.

I was thinking about doing it myself, but my daughter said; "You've been married for 30 years, I don't think you need superstition anymore."

This looks like the style of Mokoto Shinkai, Maker of such films as 5 Centimeters Per Second, and Voices from a Distant Star.

Very nice.

We are going to Paris next month so i will try to check it out for you.

Forgot to addendum this you can find the locks on any bridge in Paris that you can fit one on to. And they are appearing all over. I saw them in France Italy Spain and England. And it isn't just bridges. I saw them on a sculpture in Florence. When couples do that they throw the key down the sewer.
