Thank you!!! :D Right? Hoping we don't have to one day, not looking forward to a Mad Max kind of world. :P

I prefer older painting style that contemporary one... pleasure!
Rowye's avatar
Right? I know! I'm amazed at how you portray that with the colors in your works. They all look so classic... and I have no clue how you do that lol. :P

Very interesting concept. It feels like dream vs. reality, or afterlife vs. life.
Rowye's avatar
I guess it's a very open concept, as I didn't have a very specific idea in making it either, just some sort of profound hope and also just realizing our own reality.
Thank you so much for your comment, I'm happy you liked it! :D
