Oh, I love it, I love it! The firefly idea was lovely, and the way "dare to dream" is written on the wall is a lovely touch. :D

I have to agree with Night, though; the woman is my favourite part. I'd be intrigued to know who she is, how she got there, what happened to her to make her look so... I don't know, I think she looks a bit afraid to dream again. :+fav: just because it's wonderful.

She is afraid... very very afraid that if she dares to dream again, she will be hurt when dreams do not come true. As for her story... well, maybe I will write it one day, who knows! :) Thanks, dear!

Hey, I always liked dark backalleys with some source of light in them. Be it burning oil-barrels or other cool stuff x) Like glowing dragonflies... or whatever that little thing is :aww:

Like the symbolism. No matter how dark you might think your life is, there's always that one glimmering spark of hope you can hold onto... getting all poetic here, someone stop me already :blush: XD
If I remember your comment right, that's just what you tried to get along, right? ^^

An amazing picture, dear. I love everything about it, the lightling, the composition, all the marvelous colors that suit so perfectly for the mood of the picture.

But my favorite part of the picture is the girl's expression, once again you manage to gove the usually plastiky models that significant alive and breathing expression. She has a look of a toughened by reality woman, who has long stopped to believe in fairitales about happy endings, but the sight she sees seemed to shake her believes, there is a hint of that childish hope and suspicious wonder in her eyes, the unwillingness to accept what is right there before her eyes yet at the same time a deep want, maybe even need to believe and hope.

Once a gain a wonderful creation dear, a standing avation! :clap:

Beautiful...the contrast of the light with the grim surroundings, the wondering look on her face, and the words, almost lost in the dirt and graffiti on the wall, but there nonetheless.

I like the firefly most of all. It symbolizes the message "Don't Give Up Hope" and gives a room a golden glow, as if the woman is basking not only in the light, but in the words as well. :)

The contrast of light and darkness...very cool indeed. :D

The anarchy symbol on the wall is a nice touch as well. ;)

:icontasharene:
Tasharene Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LOL, the anarchy symbol came with the texture of the wall, so I can't really take credit for it, but the 'dare to dream' writing is my doing, so... :P Anyway, I'm glad you like it, dear! :hug:
