Dangerous Dreams by Aegis-Illustration Dangerous Dreams by Aegis-Illustration
"Be careful with your wishes... they may become real...

Info: Adobe Photoshop CS2, 5000x5000 px @ 400 dpi, 1,4GB filesize; +30 hours of work.
Resources: Own archive + few pics from sxc.hu.

The image within the frame was originally designed for a CD Cover, but it wasn't used. I liked it a lot and decided to revisit it.

Thanks for looking!

excuse me but what is your average completion time of your pieces?

Oh well, it really depends on the complexity... usually from few hours to 1-2 weeks :)

To shorten my always too long posts I'd try to cross out all the technical details i really like. You'll remember that, ok?
The lower part of the image is really original and effective. The throne nicely keep the things together, but the fingers ont border dont fit my taste i think, they're unnaturally red. Or maybe its just because of background. I dont know.
Idea: I understand the idea in the desc but i cant say how is it connected with the picture. My interpretation without desc would more focus on the dreams than wishes. Seeing the alternate reality in your dream can hurt when you're awake :)

Well, dreams are created from what it is in our subconsciousness/inconsciousness, our real desires, preocupations, etc... Maybe you can see the connection now? =P

Disagree. Dreams are a product of brain sorting out our memories. What you dream is not what you desire. They are just random thoughts. Thats why dreams are so unreal.

Jeje algo macabraaa la idea, pero me agrada...

Realmente los elementos como siempre logrando mezclarlas tan atinadamente, extrañamente tantos podrían dar la sensación de acumulamiento, o que están de más pero cuando cada cual tiene su función realmente no se ve ese encimamiento que quizás en cualquiera que quisiera copiar tu estilo ocurriría, pero bueno eso es una obviedad.

Los colores son geniales, los contrastes y me encanta también la sensación de simetría creo que en parte eso es lo que completa una visión clara y limpia de la idea de la pieza.

Como sienpre mejorando, me encanta la que sería coverart de un cd de algun músico (demasiado pendejo a mi gusto :P) pero pues se lo pierde, eso también lo alabo, ha completado la idea esa mano enterrada como representación gráfica y literal del deseo del hombre en el agua, es hombre? jajaja creo que veo pelos en sus brazos =s hahaha XD

Jiji gracias!! :hug:, si, la mano es de hombre, que es mía xD, y bueno pues sí, si no les gustó la portada qué se le va a hacer... quieren que haga algo muy cliché y pues... como que no me hace gracia pero es lo que hay :P
Y estoy jugando a reforzar contrastes, creo que es uno de los puntos débiles en mi trabajo :P

The water is breathtaking. I wish the full-view was a bit bigger though as I'm anxious to see the detail on the chair (?) in the middle. D:

This one bends my brain, in an awesome way. The symmetry alone just absorbs you, drawing your eye straight to the picture in the frame.

Wishes are always dangerous, specially if we are not very sure of them.

Dreaming with roses... I wouldn't mind :)
