Dreaming by jerry8448 Dreaming by jerry8448
~o~ Dreaming ~o~

Working with my new tablet is really fun.
I did this pic for :iconenchantedforest:'s mythical dream contest.

Done with Photoshop 7 and Aiptek 12000u tablet. A quick sketch of this can be found in my scraps section.

Full view please.

Have fun.

Thank you for all the favs and kind comments. They're highly appreciated. - And a special thank you to the Team from Enchantedforest :hug:

Holy crap, This stuff is so amazing! I am working on a lot of dreamscapes for my poetry. Could I use these images to express the justification of having dreams versus having nightmares?? Your stuff is so good.

Thanks. I started painting digitally in late 2007, but started painting in general a lot longer ago ;)

Hi Jerry; sent you an email while trying to regain access to my account here...

Love this piccie! (I love that there's a nightmare version of it too! If I had more wallspace I'd want to hang the two side by side...) I must admit, my first thought upon seeing it -- well, okay, maybe my second or third thought -- was "I should try something like that in Blender!" :-) I'm always looking for inspiration... :-)

I think the images that catch my interest the most are those which tease me with the possibility of story. What is happening here? Where does that path (or bridge) lead? What's down that hole? This works well in that regard! :-)

Hi. I used to sell it on dA, but had to stop doing so when Splosh licensed the image. It is now available exclusively via Splosh Homeware in Australia.

Wonderful picture - I like the floating islands and the bridges connecting them. The signs are a funny element and the lamp post reminds me of Narnia!

This is very pretty. It feels like when you just realize that you are actually dreaming and are free to do and explore anything. The little paw prints are probably from some small animal leading the dreamer on, maybe down the rabbit hole on the first island or up the tree on the second island. Or maybe the dragonfly led the dreamer here and is their companion. It looks like the sky is actually nighttime but appears brighter because of the lamppost and the mysteriously glowing clouds, both powered by the dreamer I would imagine. I like how detailed the plant life and mushrooms are; it puts me in mind of gardens and rabbits. When I learned Photoshop, I didn’t realize it could be used to make art from scratch rather than just photo editing. How many layers are in this, do you know? It is very well done.

Finally, a picture that you can purchase as a print *u* I'm so going to see what the prices (and sizes) are :3 Beautiful picture, to be honest I kind of like the nightmare version more, but having it on the wall in my room would probably be a bit depressing .. xD

I left you a comment with the picture, but you seem to have deleted both. Please keep copyright laws in mind, or dA could close your account. I don't want to seem mean. I'm simply trying to save you from a lot of trouble as your gallery is full of obvious copyright violations.

First, I apologize for this unintentional error I know the rights and well-directory I deleted the design for a picture of you in the design ..I will do another picture in the same design ..I respect the rights of others and I would like to tell you I saw quite a lot of people Many of the photos used in their designs without any permission
A picture of your gallery..But I asked you to permission, because I respect the rights and pleas I do not use any image I find on the Internet And not because I made a mistake in the time I am always wrong and my gallery not full of obvious copyright violations because i didnt use any pic from DA ..just one design i used in it a pic from DA so why you said that ?all my pic are from my site or another sites not from here !! so i must know what i do ..
any way thanks a lot i have my pics and my gallery and dA could not close my account as i use my own work and sorry ..sorry again ..you are a great designer i hope you great future We humans will not make those things affect the respect between us, There is nothing permanent in life
pleased to meet you

Again, I am not trying to insult you in any way. The pictures in your gallery are made with various photos and paintings/clip-arts. I don't know where you got them and it really doesn't matter anyway. Every picture on the internet - be it on dA or any other site - is protected by copyright laws, no matter whether it has the symbol or not. Only pictures that are marked as stock are free to be used and even then most providers expect some form of credit/compensation.
All I'm saying is be careful... ;)
