Hopes and Dreams: Illusion by serafleur Hopes and Dreams: Illusion by serafleur
I've been inactive for almost a month. I didn't expect that I'll be this very busy! And a lot of things happened... There are confusion, complicated situations, stressful days, and other unwanted happenings. It made me feel like to draw my feelings out. Drawing is really an effective way to make me forget a little bit of the pain.. The outcome isn't much similar to my original sketch 'cause I have no time to finish coloring all the details. I learned alot of coloring techniques while coloring this piece.

I deeply apologize to those who are still in my commissions list, while on my Christmas break I'll be able to finish them atleast most of you! Thank you very much for being so patient!

Anyway, this artwork represents my feelings. There are many symbols here..

Wings. I want to have my freedom. I feel like I'm being chained..
Clock. Time, I wanted to go back in time where everything is still at peace, where me and my family's always happy. We feel no major pains at all..
Blue crystals. My past memories, I should let them go and accept that they will always be just memories. I can't go back to those times..
Pastel colors. I colored this with bright pastel colors and it's similar to wanting to be happy again, without being so hopeless.
Background. The background is like she's just having a dream.. I dream that all of this will happen but will they just stay as an illusion?

Below her gown is just similar to an 'illusion'..

I thank my friends here in dA who're still thinking of me while I'm gone. You know who you are hunnies! :heart:

Tools: Adobe Photoshop CS6, Wacom Graphire 4
Hours: 25+ hours ( It took me almost 3 weeks -- I only have the time to draw at least 1-2 days a week and 3-4 hours a day.. That's how busy I am ;___; )
