Oh man, what an epic-looking image. I really admire your skill and vision.

Thank you!
It's really interesting that are you commenting on this particular image right now (a fairly old one) because I'm just now working on a kind of sequel of it as I write this. :-)

I'd love to see that sequel.

I had this idea recently: in the distant future, lucid dreaming becomes a significant field of research and development, and some people who engage in it gradually become very different from the rest of the human race - psychologically, and otherwise. Eventually, many thousand lucid dreamers split off to colonize their own planet and to continue evolving separately.

The theme seems rife with possibilities!

Wow, that's a great idea. If you ever turn that into a book, I'd sure buy it!
Lol ironically enough I was just at a workshop on attaining this kind of clarity and control in dreamscape! Nice!!!

I really like the colours of it, but I could not help but notice the statue-like boobs - I know its a dreamy scene, but my first thought was "haha, fake boobs!" anyways. Probably tells more about me than you, but still. : )

Haha - great image and beautiful lighting. I distinctly remember floating above my bed like this as a child. :)

Arthur, the fabrics look incredibly good and the translucency is stunning, as is the lightning (I like the contrast between the red room and the blue space sky). I'd have preferred a little depth of field to make the character stand out a little bit more.

Yes, I know what you mean about the DOF. I tried but the problem with DOF in general, whenever I think of using it, is that it hides (by blurring) the background. If the background is beautiful, that's a shame to hide and I always end up giving up its use. This was the case here. I liked the sky so much that I felt it would be a shame to hide it (blur it).
