Cryo Dream

. Hearing of Satoshi Kon's death, I guess it affected my dreams.

This image is supposed to be a 'virtual' screenshot from an anime that doesn't exist, with simple cell-shaded characters moving against a painted background.

I had a vivid dream about watching an anime about astronauts visiting a realm of great beauty with large magical beings. I thought, "Oh yah, this is that new anime by Otomo or Kon coming out!" This was the last image before I woke up, of an astronaut gleefully playing with a large, floating goddess in a field.

For some reason, despite the colorful beauty, there was an air of menace to it, like it was an illusion, much like Otomo's anime "Magnetic Rose" in 'Memories'. Like some hallucination while the astronaut was in cryostasis. It was such a vivid image, I had to sketch it out in the same cell-shading style of an anime!

Another influence might be that I've been making my way through the entire collection of TWILIGHT ZONE DVD's. Some of the best TV ever seen.

I hope you like it.

very cool. This would make a great Satoshi Kon (RIP) movie. Like you, I've had dreams so vivid that I could draw them afterwards. It's really creepy when that happens :)
