Missing Land by eilidh Missing Land by eilidh
I have not walked here before
I think
It might have just been a dream. A nightmare -- but it didn't feel frightening.
It felt so many things at once that it was as if it didn't feel at all.

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-09-12
Of the many ethereal worlds we've been treated to in modern works of art, few are so fascinating as those hinted at here. Missing Land by *eilidh is the portal to that realm of wonders. ( Suggested by SeaFairy and Featured by frail )

This is beautifully surreal. The color scheme is so pretty and the picture gives off an aura of mystery. I know this is quite old but I found it in a recent Reddit post and couldn't ignore it. Every piece of yours is gorgeous.

This really speaks to me.  I don't fully understand the words, but it really speaks to me.  For a second, I could swear I saw things in the cloud through the doorway.  Amazing.

Very mystical. Reminded me of a movie I saw once where some kids were looking for a world but only one could pass through it's gates. Very magical.

Thanks! Do you remember the name of that movie, by any chance?

I have been trying to scan my brain for the answer to that question, but all I remember clearly is that scene. =C

I do recall movies with similar scenes, but they aren't what your painting reminded me of. Such as in Ghostbusters, there is that scene where that Vigo comes from and a few other movies, but the one that I liked the most I can't recall. I will try asking my family if they recall what it was.

Still I love your painting. It is so beautiful!

I am still looking for it. I watch so much stuff that I may be mixing my movies with anime or cartoons. Though maybe I saw something similar before and then just dreamed it so it doesn't exist in the real world until you designed it and it just brought back this dream I had. XD

You never know though. I still love this art piece though. Even without the missing piece of my memory. =b

I think I remember the scene you're referring at. Structures in a waste land is a surrealist staple! Though I hadn't quite realised this when I painted this picture. :)

To be perfectly honest, there is an error in the arc's perspective. I'm surprised that in all these years no-one has noticed. ;)

well to be perfectly honest, I did notice, but...erratic perspective in a surreal landscape is sooooooo subjective.... :D

I suppose it can be. ;)

Great works, by the way (I found you via your submission at #dream-club ). I noticed you hide all your frontpage comments, so I might as well say so here. :)

Your group also has a very well put together collection.

Thank you very much, indeed! We're just starting but have great plans. You may be interested in acting as a contributor? The gallery is surreal-dark oriented, and we're working on an off-dA site for features and interviews and stuff. Let me know!

No need to! :)

I would definitely be interested in participating as contributor to such a high quality group (focused in a genre I like very much), and thank you for considering me.

I have already experience with administrating groups, so I could sure help! :)
