Sleep Well by BenjaminGalley Sleep Well by BenjaminGalley
PS7
Wacom Graphire 3

Open to interpretation, but intentions are God holding back the devil / guarding us while we sleep / spiritual warfare.

Inspired by Hannah.

The concept that came to my mind before reading the description was a good dream versus a nightmare. Your concept makes much more sense :slow:

I'm always impressed with people that draw using the wacom. It's an amazing image you've created!

Well, unfortunately I posted the feature before you posted the image. I'm afraid I missed you, my apologies, but thank you for sharing!

Amazing message. I love it.

... Actually, I really love it. I'd love to buy a print of this for my mom for her birthday or Christmas.

Fantastic!! Send me an e-mail or note or something when you're ready to buy one. ^_^ I don't like to use the DA print shop, plus I think I give a less expensive price in the end, as I don't charge you shipping.

Things that go bump in the night. :fear: My own interpretation just because I steer away from religious views. The choice of colors again are magnificent. The expression on her face shows fear...or...maybe...she's just sleeping. But here's what I see. (My interpretation....warning...I've got a screwed up sense of interpretation.)

A little girl pretending to sleep too scared to open her eyes.
The monster that hovers above her is at the mercy of his master.......^^;
hehe anyway...

You know I think thats the first interpretation where Blue was the master of Red, holding him back at his own whim of letting go. Very nice :D Thank you for sharing.

I like the interpretation of this work that you've done. I like how you create a great concept and having it implied to this work. It looks dark, yet it's a picture of a dream.
