My Dreams Float Up by mynti My Dreams Float Up by mynti
Painting based on a doodle I did when I was tired.

Approx. 30 hours (mostly in trying to get the perspective right)

Referenced several stock photos from stock exchange, morguefile, and my own mirror antics.

Made specifically for mug format (shown above) but is also available cropped for regular prints.

This is incredible. I love the child's expression and the perspective. I'm not sure what it is standing on but perhaps that is what draws me to it?

WAAAAH when i saw this at your journal top i just had to find this in your gallery~!! :love:
the angle is awesome! i know how i spent once 3-4h to get the angle of a leg right, but 30h! :faint: you're unbelievable! i hope i can reach that level of patience too :)
good luck onwards!! :dance:
Have a Merry Christmas~!:bulletred::bulletgreen:
And a Lovely New Year~!!:dance:

Thank you :heart: This is not my most popular painting or anything but you found one of my favorites of my work straightaway :giggle: I'm slowly getting into surrealism, but most of my ideas (dreams) I still have a hard time portraying so far...

They tend to be funky perspective like this and I'm slowly figuring it out :D

I totally get you.

I've wanted to paint this 3-part dream (yes, it comes in chapters) I had many years ago, like 4 years ago or something, but just couldn't because it's so surreal. It's insane. I think I would go mad if I tried to finish it :/ That and I want to paint it on real canvas and right now we don't have the equipments yet (need to order them).

I do love this piece though. Makes me smile :)
