Sweet dreams are made of this by BlueRoseArkelle Sweet dreams are made of this by BlueRoseArkelle
who am I to disagree


Coloring video will be up tomorrow

Hahahaha oh man i'm so lame with the song lyrics/ art thing omg :iconmingplz:

My OC, Rem. who weirdly enough looks a lot like Phyre without distinguishable coloration or clothes. OTL

Just a quick doodle, but I got really inspired to refine it and make something out of it. Pretty much everything about this doesn't make any sense, but that is the point. xD You'll have to read a bit more as to why.

Anyways, sorry for lack of art recently. ;__; So many things to do, so little time...

Err, I don't really want to explain this too much but...
Rem tends to hallucinate a lot which is to be expected of one who never sleeps. Rem cannot sleep so in turn he cannot dream, and he wonders if dreams are anything like reality or if reality is just a dream.
EDIT: Since I was kind of vague and it may not be obvious, various things were drawn in "reverse", like the upside-down crosses. He is also in moonlight, but the color outside is reversed to red to make it appear as sunrise. Hopefully that makes more sense TvT
;___; Gah, I hate talking about Rem because he's such a sad character...I love him so much, but unlike many of my other characters I can identify with him on a very personal level, but not in a happy sense. ;___;

....also lol, speaking in canon terms, Rem doesn't get anywhere near beds, but I thought it was more symbolic that way haha.
and nakedness because vulnerability. ;__;


//flys away

Oh yeah, really the song reference doesn't have anything to do with anything. At least, not in the sense the song was intended anyways haha xD
But the reference does have to do with the story, so there you go.

Rem belongs to me and is part of my personal story, "Sleight"

Absolutely beautiful. Really, thats how I can describe your artwork. Beautiful, Gorgeous, just flat out amazing. I hope one day I can refine my style to the way I want it to look and be amazing like you.
Also the nakedness..yeees. Vulnerabilty levels rising xD
that last sentence. "Oh the nakedness yeees." didntcomeoutrightimsorry. My subconcious is a little pervert ohohoho. xD But seriously, the effect of nakedness in this picture really adds to it.
No matter how I phrase this itturnsoutwrongohwell.
Sorry. xD

I came across this over on "U" Tube.

I intend to watch more of your videos.

You are very good at Non-Literal Colors—something I've just become aware of.

I must ask, Is there some meaning to all the inverted crosses visible through the Window?
