Forever in a dream by Alicechan Forever in a dream by Alicechan
Mmmm on the fence about this one. I'm not happy with the colors, but then again I didn't actually have any set colors for it.


The idea came back a year or so ago, when I was just frustrated with reality and wished I could be shut out from it forever asleep.

Just recently got around to redrawing it and finishing it. yay first original piece of 2012.

Ohh I love when you allow comments because then I can comment on how much I love your pieces. ; v ; That is to say, the concept of this, first off, is amazing within itself. Your visual interpretation of it is both beautiful and chilling, and surreal. There's a line between reality and sleep that's just a bit indiscernible here; what has become her reality? Even the colours themselves are dreamlike and smooth. The idea is powerful and you've executed it so brilliantly, and I and I'm sure others as well can relate to a theme like this: have you ever tried inducing lucid dreaming? It's a tempting ability which fascinated me for a while. Anyway I love thinking about some of your pieces because I feel like I can get just so much more from them than I can most pieces I see on here daily. (: <3

Wow, I was just about to say that I find the colors (emanating from the pillow area) mesmerizing.

I like the unsettling aspect to this piece. But at the same time it is captivatingly beautiful. :]

I love the idea. And I totally understand what you mean about reality. It just gets so frustrating...especially when it's so different from how you want it to me. (In my case, I'm a fantasy buff, so it'd be great if magic existed ya know?!) In any case, this is a great illustration! The purple/black, and the reddish folds....whee, super pretty!

Wow this is amazing! :love: I love the universe's hands, it makes it really dreamlike but also suggests that ability to explore in dreams and go beyond our ordinary lives.

:worship: The style really works so well for it to, the texture reminds me of something from a childrens book. :la:
I would have to disagree with you; it's got perfect colours in my opinion, the soft, almost childish pink dress blending into the deeper sleepy purple and the bright hair really draws the eye to her face. which is so beautifully serene.

I often feel like this myself and i think this painting represents that beautifully. :heart: well done, it's wonderful!

Same, I also really hate realistic nightmares that happen in your house. Cause when I wake up I'm too frightened to move in bed or get out. >A<
That's why I love nice or fun dreams.

And you're most welcome Alice~~ 8D
