The Flying Parade by bramLeech The Flying Parade by bramLeech
Finally it is holiday!! After finishing most of my other works, i started painting this picture for about 5 days, on and off, this is my first digital painting that was done 100% using photoshop, without working on a handrawn lineart. I used quite alot of layers while i was painting this in order to create better depths. I was inspired by my favourite artists, Matt Gaser and Dodecaden. Comments please, tell me what is wrong with this painting and i hope you people will like it, thanks!!

The Flying Parade by ~bramLeech is something straight out of a childhood fantasy. Amazing. ( Suggested by Aiori and Featured by cosmosue )

This is so good it's SICK! (in a GREAT WAY). Great art, seriously. Colors, depth, size distortion, placement. La la la la :) (Smile)

Goes well with Tom Day - Love Your Life. Youtube it, that's how I found it. Super work, so good I looked you up. Great that it was night scene, also happy it was an idyllic view for a child that likely has everything he needs, which for me makes it peaceful. Also like how the the whale and the middle thing are looking at him. Everything is interacting with you as a child - you don't yet know how much people feel they don't have time to care. Wavy train softens the whole thing perfectly. And never leave home without your own personal fleets of origami and paper airplanes. I would put this as a mural on an entire wall in my kid's room. Better than the ol' orange wallpaper.

Looks like a modern take on the Japanese screen painting The Night Parade of the Hundred Demons.

This is one of the very first artwork I seen before I joined the college that you've went, love your whimsical style for cuteness and young-child :)

It's just so imaginative and the colours are perfectly chose. It's again, something wonderful that you share with us. The DD that you had with this one is also really deserved.

This is so breathtakingly beautiful it honestly almost brings a tear to my eye. The DEPTH you have created with photoshop alone, bravo my friend. Bravo. Is there a really big version of this? I could just immerse myself in it for hours! In every minute detail of it: The paper planes- the pin pricks of light in the distance, nestled under the cottony clouds.

The sky seems endless with dreams, it looks like it goes on for miles and miles, with the yawning light of the moon washing everything; the child's head, the whale's back. Honestly It almost makes me want to cry a little looking at this- It makes me feel like I'm 5 years, looking at an illustration in one of this giant children's books, almost as big as me: The blueness of everything, how it has this luminous dream-like quality that would probably have actually frightened me as a child.

I sound crazy. You rock though! :D

I don't think anything is wrong in this picture. I love how I don't notice the cities and building until after I look down. It makes the piece even more pretty.
