In Dreams by CrystallineEssence In Dreams by CrystallineEssence
Ever had one of those dreams that just feels disjointed and like the scenery is constantly changing? Yeah... you get the idea. =P This was on my old account under a different name, but I fixed it up a bit and changed a few things and decided this name fit it better. I tried to make the stone angel appear as if it was walking out of the wall, no that's not just a shoddy blending job ;P , and as for the rest... well, find your own symbology in it. There's pleanty of symbology in dreams anyway... or at least, that's what Freud says. :D

Girl: ARGH can't find the stock account for this one, let me know if you recognize her and I'll link right away!

I think you've managed to capture the feeling of dreams wonderfully. :) The scenery is always shifting in mine. :doh:

Yeah I know, and I hate it in a dream when you get to a really good part and then everything changes and you just want to go back... *sigh* ;)

Brilliant! A captivating concept and great choice of stocks. I also like the texturing as it lends the piece even more dreamlike look. :)

Thank you! Some people have complained about using so many different stocks, saying they don't fit quite right, but I was hoping that the texturing would help that. :)

Congratulations on another very smooth disjointed dream like piece of incredible awesomeness :P sorry its been so long since i commented on any of your pieces, been busy with uni.

I love the girl in this picture especially and the grass she is sitting on. you have an amazing eye for colour regarding grasses and dressers. The pillars are also nice but pale when compared with the focus of the piece.

Overall great work :) love it.

Thank you very much, and thanks for the fav! Not a lot of people mentioned the grass but I'm really glad you like it, it all took a lot of time getting textures right and stuff. Thanks for the support. =)

Its just the clarity of it and the very natural kind of flow together it has, wonderful overall effect. The time was well spent to get it right in my opinion :)

A good picture that is well laid out and done excellently with a flawless idea behind it. However, and this may just be me, the girl in the lower left just seems to stick out a lot in comparison to everything else in the picture.

No, I know what you mean about the girl, the frustrating thing was that I couldn't find the original .psd file on this computer so all the changes I made I had to do to the already finalized .jpg version, which meant I couldn't blend the girl better. :(

This is a second version of a one with the similar idea, right? I seem to remember. If I'm correct, this one is much better. I just feel like there is too much going on, too many special effects. But I do like this image so much more over the first one. :)

Well, I kinda wanted it to be one of those pictures where wherever you look, there's something going on, but I know that's not everyone's taste. =) I'm glad you like it more than the old one, I do too!

What a loverly image! Definitely dreamscape-ish, and the glistening shimmer this seems to have makes it more mystical. ^^ I like the effect of the statues you have. Nice work! :)
