Dreams by MelissaDalton Dreams by MelissaDalton
Hmmm, months without inspiration or anything decent, then I whip this out of nowhere. Creative urges are strange. So's my imagination I suppose. :dummy: I been redoing versions of this since like I was 16 or so when I was inspired by a tattoo my uncle did. (sharpie utopia for example). Thought I would revisit it since its a neat concept.

Anyhoo, this is my submission for the wacom dreams contest, obviously. Originally it wasn't, but by the time I was done I realized it might fit the bill. :shrug: I guess what I pictured was a giant mushroom with tiny mushrooms springing out of the side or something with like fairy eggs on them. XD I don't know anymore lol. I am pleaseed with how it came out. I havent done any solid fantasy art in ages.

Critique would be nice if you happen to notice anything.

Lol, well the toad thing I drew a few months ago before I had plans to do this, and both bubble-burst things stem from the original version of this fairy-mushroom concept. :D

Lol I'll try. Since I started doing a bunch of art I have, as expected, fallen behind in my schoolwork so yeah. Gonna take a break to catch up again before finals get here and destroy me.

Omg this is so beautiful! Your such an amazing artist! I love the shading and color choice, its a really calming picture. :heart: And I love that little fairy flying around in that back too =D

The only thing that looks off to me is that her left eye dosen't look as relaxed as her right eye, but that might just be me lol
