Fickle Visions by Methyss Fickle Visions by Methyss

"If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time."
by Marcel Proust

:bulletred:Explination:

I've been thinking for so long about the importance of dreaming in our lives. We all want money and fame.
But I did this work thinking about other kinds of dreams: think of the life of a prisoner- he only dreams of freedom or a disabled person, whose only dream is being healthy again. In this cases dreams bring us hope, but in most of the cases they bring also disapointement and sorrow (ex. most of the disabled can never walk again!)
This is what I tryed to illustrate in my picture: dreaming of power, money and celebrity it's only an illusion that fades in time, altrough they are also important...but we should not forget about dreaming of other things too:love, health or liberty. If you one of those is taken from your life, money and fame cannot help you to earn them back!

:bulletred:My Technique:

Well, with the help of some good stock images and after painting for hours, here it comes xD
I used my Graphic Tablet and Photoshop cs4.
I hope you enjoy it!
