Take It Away by silentkitty Take It Away by silentkitty
I'm always inspired by dreams, which is mostly what this piece is about. The first thing I'll do if I'm feeling uninspired is to flop down on my bed and cover my head with a pillow.. I tend to have recurring themes in my dreams, a lot of which I incorporated here (the setting itself, as well, is similar to a place that shows up a lot). The figure has her back turned to the viewer because human figures in my dreams tend to be vague; it's very rare that I'll have a clear look at a face while I'm dreaming.

On a side note, I'd just like to say I have the best watchers in the world. =p Thanks to everyone who gave me awesome feedback on this piece, I appreciate it a million times over. I'm mostly finished with it at this point, but feel free to point out anything else that could be fixed up and I'll probably go back and tweak.

:heart: :silentkitty:

It's a lovely picture, but I don't quite understand what's going on? Either way, I love the ocean view.

I loved the surrealistic air of this! The colors are so light and everything loks so smooth!

Very beautiful! I really love the colors and the surreal feel.

This is a lovely painting ... one of those that almost tells a story, like a snatch of dream. Part of you wants to understand it and part of you knows that if you do understand it, it will kill the magic.

I'm very glad a friend told me to check out your gallery!

I don't see anything that needs changing here.
This is undeniably an awesome piece of work you have created, and I give it:
:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Two thumbs up!
If I had more, they'd be up, too.

Deformities, deformities...
I see 'em way too much.
(Like on Bruce Almighty, only that was just more fingers)

Very nice piece. I especially enjoy the hair, butterfly, and feather detailing. Nice depth to the piece as well.

Wow... Kitty, this is awesome!
I particularly like the way the arrow/spear has a butterfly on one end. It makes it seem less dangerous, yet just as painful. The textures and colors are beautiful... Very inspiring... :+favlove:

It looks great. I can't find any more mistakes on it at this point

*does the "awesome watcher" dance*
ivyc Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2004
Awe :) I love it... It turned out so wonderfully I really like the blanket a lot... that texture looks marvelous on it... Makes me want to curl up with it... Definately!!! The water is so awesome. I love how you made it so choppy with the waves... There is something tranquil about even choppy sea. I love the way the sun comes through the clouds. The rocks turned out very nice too I think very realistic. :nod: and I have always loved they way you are so good at doing hair on people... amazing. :+fav:

I rather like how the blanket has a sort of faux-fur/shag carpet look to it now. I don't know why, but the notion of it amuses me.

wow, nothing ordinary about the contents in this image... =D
I like it! (but her left butcheek appears smaller than the right to me)
pickledeer Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2004
OMG, am I one of those best watchers in the world? :flirty:


It turned out great and I'm just thrilled that you took my advice in a lot of places. :) The only thing that even semi-bothers me is that the little blob of blanket all the way to the right still seems to lack some detail and definition. No biggy though. :shrug:

Thanx for sharing dreams. :D Don't touch this pic, its marvellous. :)
wonderful-sickness Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2004

caffiend Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2004  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Very cool. I definatly like the panaramicness (is that a word) of this picture as it adds to the piece greatly. Always nice work from you.
