Dream Big! by Shizuko-Akatsuki Dream Big! by Shizuko-Akatsuki

It looks like she's having a nice dream :)
This drawing is supposed to be divided in two parts : the "reality" part (on the left) and the "dream" part (on the right, the scene that is happening "inside the hair" of the character) ! The hair is actually a representation of her own mind, her thoughts, meaning that what's happening inside this part is the product of her imagination Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4]
She dreams about a goal she wants to achieve~ The sky represents the greatness of her ambition, the fact that she's dreaming very high, and the stairway represents all the efforts she has to make in order to achieve it Relieved Apparently her goal is to unleash this lil star in the sky, but it's very metaphorical, please interpet this as you want, I want it to be as relatable as possible !

Oh btw, I'm having 2 weeks of vacation/school break, which means more time for art yay \o/ Hope disconnecting a bit from schoolwork and stuff will also help me release my stress and anxiety, which have become pretty toxic recently-

Hope you'll like it Happy Advices and critiques are really appreciated owo !

I like this one bear clap emoji is it about chasing our dreams? anyway, this drawing divided into two parts, the reality on the left and the dream on the right. Could it possibly ... the left brain and the right brain? Of course left brain are used with logic and being practical, and right brain using intuitive and imagination more Kao emoji  (yay smile-02) I like it so much, is that little stars in the girl's hope and dreams? and she would like to let her hope and dreams flying really up above in the sky, as high as can be?

do not feel trapped! we can do more than we think ^^ just unleash our inner stars Shooting Star Emoji

Ohhh god I knew about the left and right brain thingy, though I didn't think about it while drawing this, but now that you've said it it sounds so relevant O-O
And yeah you perfectly got the overall vibe of the drawing ! Makes me so happy <3

o__o I mean, you didn't thought about that while drawing it!? WOW! You're so cool!
ah, maybe it's because it's drawn like: her imagination is drawn in the left side of the girl, so actually my comment is pretty made-up lol xD I just think by myself after all, don't take it seriously ahaha;; but after all, I'm very surprised about this! You did very great ^^

You did a remarkable job of representing the dream here - I love how she just fades right in to it.

I really love this idea and the colors you chose to use :) somewhere in the application though the "bubble" and all that black paint to the right just looks very clunky and doesn't translate very well, maybe doing a more classicly shaped and colored bubble and having those "Stairs" be a different color than black mightve looked a bit better. just my thoughts :)

Thank you .:Bunny kyaa:.
I agree that the bubble seems almost invisible here because of the colors, but I was too lazy to change >> Oh and what color should have I used to paint the stairs ?

i'm not sure to be honest! maybe the stairs would be a bit too strange to the eye in any color, maybe instead of plain stairs they could be galaxy themed somehow? just a random thought ahah

Ahh beautiful! This piece has really beautiful colours and your drawing seems to have improved <3
Although you could have done better a few things like, the brush that you've used to do the effects looks a bit overused in some area (like where it's concentrated) and what is that supposed to be? (I assume stars, but it could also look like sparkles?) And the stairs look crooked/slanted, and you could have made a few more stairs? x'D
For the meaning behind it, I think that this girl is quite idealistic, since we can never truly achieve our goals like this, following a straight path for it as there are many obstacles and challenges that we will face on the way as well + the effort of climbing up the stairs xD
Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much ! I kinda struggled with the colors so yeah.. I'm glad it ended up looking fine x'3
Ah yeah, the star brush;. The one I use is kinda difficult, I'll maybe try another one or just keep with this one till I get comfortable with it :p
Shhh I know the stairs are crooked but I was too lazy to fix it, so let's act as if we saw nothing
Actually there are a lot more stairs but we can't see them all in the pic, we just see the top since the picture frame isn't large enough to show everything xD
Hmm... One day I've heard someone talking about the "way to success" as a stairway o-o So I used that metaphor in my drawing ^^ But it's true that we can see it as a winding road with plenty obstacles to overcome xD But a picture isn't mean to represent perfeclty reality after all, it's just a metaphor :P
