Window into a Dream of Flight

This is a bit of a left turn for me, in that I mixed some new untried methods with my usual approach to color and blur... but I sat down for a couple of hours and this is the result. Totally unplanned, the concept was in my head but not fully visualized.

Thanks to asunder for his brush pack!

I wish it were bigger so I could see more of the detail, which is apparent from what I am looking at. I love the colors, and the selective use of blur to make this. The crispness of the clouds in the background add a really nice effect.

Really great creation. I'm sure you've heard this before, and I don't know how you feel about being compared to others, but it reminds me of Dave McKean.
Very cool.
Saw your message on the Welcome Forum, thought I'd stop by.

lol i get that too.. where i got the idea in my head.. but its just so damn hard to acutally create it with the materlals, and software available. Its very nice to see that your doing expiermental stuff, and other works too. All of your works are extremely unique which is nice, I personall perfer arts which are unique, and have that sense of style unique to the artist. lol i dislike the trends stuff the people go with.. lol such as those teckky abstract stuff, they are very cool and impressive but.. i dunon hehe. ANyways i'm going off topic. This piece is extremely different, the colours, and essentially the whole feeling and thinking that comes after viewing this piece. lol and what flinja said about he diagonal, i say its acutally better to see it diagonal, we are just so use to society that its implanted in our brain to see "ORDER" "straight" things of the norm.. that we learn to not accept or takes time to accept.. unusual or different things.. but thats the beauty of art where these unusual, and unique things are expressed. I like the background you use for the character, and the lack of details on the characters face all ads up to a mysterious, but soft and gentle unkowness to the piece. This is a very cool piece, it feels dreamy and different but thats exactly what I like about it =) (Smile)

Very dreamy - I like how the sharpness is remained in parts of the picture. Well done.

Hahaha It makes me glad to hear that flinja, that was exactly what I was hoping for, I tried to tilt everything a bit so you would feel like you keep wanting to turn your head to the right... Asunders brushes were perfect to reeinforce that, so I layered a bunch of them on top of each other with various transfer modes for the frame.

Thanks for the comments everyone!
