My maybe fourth-ish try with oils? I'm starting to get the hang of how much color I need for each layer. And I realized that I'm not someone who adds one thick layer, but a dozen thin ones. It's just more my way of painting. :D And it's insanely fun to work that way. More on the way.

Lots of the OST of the final boss and Four from Drakengard 3.

So, traditional media on mixed media paper (it's not ideal for oils, but it's what I have right now :D ).

Critiques are always highly appreciated and tips for working with oils too! But please stop comparing my works with Ghibli. I really, really heard THAT peculiar comment enough by now. :)

Me always having weird dreams, and not interesting at all, it was little scary! Sometimes disgusting! 

I was looking for the meaning of Qwq what I found is more scary than all my dreams lol: 
----->>
But in Korean, 'qwq' has been clinically proven to mean "NOT EVEN DEATH CAN SAVE YOU FROM ME."
-------

I think its the second meaning :
--------
A typed emoticon (face) expressing crying
-------

wish so lol

I... definitely meant the crying emoticon face. XD

I had no idea about the other meaning. XD

Dreams: Whom are you telling that. Most of mine are just darn weird with impossible architecture that makes me feel nauseaus when I think about it during my awake time. <.<'

Well fine,

- Sometimes it is better not to dream, it gives the mind a break than busy it even when it asleep. 
-I used to see weird dreams since my childhood and I can remember the most, as I was record them in my diary notebook, not all.
- So I thought to draw them or write them as short stories.
- Sometimes it showing you like a movie the whole your life story. That is more interesting. 


(Wish u have anglican dreams better than demons nightmares). Angelmote
