Sleepwalkers Dream by blue-but-beautiful Sleepwalkers Dream by blue-but-beautiful
Close your eyes
For the night is falling
Fear no dark
For it's warm and safe
And looks familiar
As it comes approaching
Come with me
And I will take you

A world beyond your sleep
Beyond what's real
An in safety hidden sphere
Away from our daily reality
Truth lies out there

As the innocent
Lay their heads down
As the night chants it's
Luring call
Cross the borders of
Sense and foresight
Come with me
And I will take you
you don't have to be afraid

A tear is only water
A sigh is only air
Whenever you feel haunted
The truth lies out there

Lyrics: Delain
Art: Myself :)




Another piece in the collection I am doing based on songs with gothic/fantasty imagery.

You, today I was looking up "Sleepwalker's Dream" song on google images to see if anyone else had already done some art for the song. I kid you not, this artwork was the FIRST image on my search. This is really well done and I like the dark style. So yeah, I'm planning on doing something similar :P.

Really? I had no idea! Colour me surprised :blush:
Thanks very much, I would like to update this one in due course, there's a few nagging bits of anatomy I want to fix with it, but I'm very glad you like it :D
I'd also love to see what you come up with :)

I was probably going to look at having the subject pass through a window or barrier, displaying the real world and the dream state... but it's an idea.

Thanks, in retrospect I would like to rework this one, I used a lot of old techniques and believe my work has improved since then, but I like it enough to keep it for now. Always room to do more!

Thanks :) this was a quickly finished one, I wish I had spent a bit more time on the tone of it, but I can always go back I suppose!

LOL Thanks, the head is actually based on a pose I did for that Synthetica shoot, but the shinyness was added for this pic, my hair is often too fine to be that shiny AND stay flat :XD:
The band are from the Netherlands, some pretty cool bands out that way :D

Ack, let me clarify. I don't quite understand how the "bottom" and dress layer. I quite enjoy the atmosphere of these pieces otherwise...

I notice the transparent veins...

Hm, I don't quite get the setup of the outfit.

Ah...now I understand LOL, quick off the mark now. The setup of the outfit? It's a simple three layer garment with the chest area being masked, the flowing lower parts are semi transluscent.
