Valentine Challenge “Cupid v2.0”
Without getting into the entire history of the celebration, Valentine’s day was associated with romantic love in the Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it became an occasion in which love was expressed for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending handwritten greeting cards referred to as valentines.
Even with heavy religious overtone, Cupid, a remnant figure from Roman Mythology, survives to modern day symbolism associated with Valentine’s Day.
Cupid, the mythic God of love whose nature represents heavenly and earthly love, is often portrayed as using an arrow shot from his iconic bow to inspire romantic love.
It’s time to change the classic imagery of Cupid! In this challenge, Cupid needs a creative and innovative upgrade from his traditional form! TRADITIONAL CUPID
You can depict your “Cupid” either by itself or in a traditional role of inflicting (some kind of) inspiration onto unsuspecting victims!
Cupid does not have to be human and can be male or female.
Cupid must have the iconic bow, arrow(s), and wings.
No text. The image must tell it’s own story without text.
(Please be tasteful with no nudity.)
Deadline for this challenge is:
