A Child's Dream by ~CasualBlue works on several levels, including whimsy and how offputting it can a fun, affectionate robot with teddy bear head and avian creatures chasing a toddler kind of way. Its also painted well.

This was my final piece for my art A-level coursework. As you can see it's hugely inspired by the legendary Ashley Wood, since he was the main artist I was focusing on through out this project. My first complete oil painting.

We're currently working on a remake of the original MSX Metal Gear and are recruiting artists to work on the cutscenes (in the style of Peace Walker/Graphic Novels).

If you/someone you know might be interested then please let me know at;

You can also check the progress of the mod here;

Just cleaned up my favourites and this is definitely one to stay on the list. It gets more stunning ever time I see it. :)

Not quite my idea of a 'childs dream' but it's still good. The toddler doesn't look like he's having fun so would say it's a nightmare not a dream.
CasualBlue's avatar
It's meant to be a nightmare lol but a child's dream sounded better, cheers.
