Dream by Arbitrary-Means Dream by Arbitrary-Means
What if that world in between sleep and wake was another realm we just fall into on our pathway to dreams?

It appears that the vision of this piece is far beyond the eyes conception. I feel your originality is unique from what most would expect in great work of art. The techniques are flawless as for the impact is both mid-dazed with fantasy that escapes our minds; creating a self-meaningful impression that we can only understand for ourselves.

Vision: deep meaning/arouses strong emotion in the viewer

Originality: never seen anything like/breaks traditional aspects in art design

Technique: hues of purple transcend a conscientious state of mind/textures reveal faint and dreamy expression

Impact: makes a visionary feel as if they are apart of this breathtaking reality/brings the viewer into a realm of fantasy

This certainly seems like a vivid dreamscape.
Sorry, I'm terrible at waxing philosophical, so I'll just go with my first thought, which was "wow, that looks awesome".

This is so wonderful piece of art, it really catches my eyes! I like the idea. The background's lovely and the colouring gives mystical impression, it's like the dream world. Especially I like how the character shines in this picture. It's hard to say anything, because in my eyes this looks perfect. Fantastic work once again, keep it up! ^^

Hi I'm from :iconprojectcomment: 

Let me just say! Wowww!! So sparkly and so detailed at the same time, that's a hard effect to accomplish! Nicely placed watermark too ^^ The only thing I would point out about this is the hand anatomy. His right hand is back to front from this perspective you should only be able to see their fingers and a shaded outline of the thumb. This is only a small detail but small details are very important. I can't really tell if those feather like patterns coming from their back are wings or not. It looks nice but it's not clear what they are. Also, the lighting is fantastic but maybe adding a few different colours like teal, green or even red maybe would balance out the picture. At the moment all the colours blend and using a mixture of colours could really improve this. The clouds are done so well and shaded with such attention to the detail of the lighting and it shines in the right places! The bubbles are really cute too. I think this is really awesome! I hope you continue to improve and make such beautiful art ;P Komari Kamikita (Happiness Spiral) [V2]
