Oakley's Dream by flominowa Oakley's Dream by flominowa
"Around and around and around. The night was spinning, the glaring incandescence blinding him in the darkness, as the branches of the trees stretched high into the celestial tapestry. He felt the ground beneath him give way. Down he sank, feet first, engulfed into the rippling pool of grass. Like liquid, the earth swallowed him whole, until the fox, the carousel, and finally the forest disappeared above him. Slowly he descended from the ceiling, brushing against the chandelier, into the west drawing room, now completely dark save for the streak of light that poured in from the hallway."

For a couple years now I have been slowly working on a manuscript for a fantasy novel. As a piece for my children's book illustration portfolio, I decided to depict one of the scenes from my original story. I will be sharing more works like these on DeviantArt so be on a lookout!

I will also be opening up for Commissions soon! I'll make the official announcement in a Journal posting in a few days so keep an eye out for that, too!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the colors and the little blurb in the description. I get a feeling of dream-like whimsy with possible darker undertones as many dreams do. Beautiful.

Ok, I have a bit of a shameful confession. Browsing the Daily Deviations, I overlooked this quite a few times because I saw a bunch of bright colors and it looked like something childish, I honestly expected anime (which also has good art, but not my thing). 

But I said what the hell and decided to check this out, and I am eating my lousy thoughts right now. Yes, children indeed, but the detail and the atmosphere of this painting is mystical. You left nothing out, there's so much detail everywhere that each piece could be it's own isolated work. Everything is immaculate. There's so much magic here, so pure. 

I am truly sorry I thought this was than it's worth. This absolutely deserve the Daily Deviation. And please don't stop creating your stories or art <3
