Description

Here's something I did today as a breather from Galidor-Dragon's commission, and also to kind of experiment with things I might do to Galidor on his final stage of refinement. Apparently, I also forgot how I usually do hair, since I haven't colored much lately xD

A description about the character: This is a drawing of the person I was in my dream last night. My memory isn't perfect but I clearly remember many of these features and I did the best I could on the others. I don't really know a lot about this character since the dream was so long and the details are difficult to recall.

I will say that she is female (obviously) and she is fairly young. In my dream I(she) was diagnosed with a painful and terminal illness nicknamed 'lava', and had only several more days to live.

The things in front of my(her) abdomen are like real-time x-rays that monitor the condition of the illness. The x-rays show the skeleton and also a thermal reading of the effect of the lava illness (basically burning you from the inside), so that I(she) may monitor its progression.

Whelp, that's about it.

You know, they say that you lose memory of your dreams within 10 minutes after waking up. "They", whoever that might have been, suggest writing them down as soon as you wake up to remember them.

I have done this on many occasions. The issue is that my dreams are very bizarre and very detailed. Each one is different and takes place in its own unique universe. And each dream is very long; sometimes weeks pass by within my dreams. Even writing it down as soon as I wake up; there is no way to remember every single detail. I do have some very significant dreams that I will never forget though. This one is one of them.

Wow I wish I had dreams like yours. Mine are like stories, but they often don't make sense. Like, dialogue-wise and stuff. I'm pretty sure most of them aren't even in English. XD

Haha, that's interesting. Mine are usually in English but like. . things happen that don't make ANY sense at all in real life but make all kinds of sense in whatever world that dream is in. Like jump off a skyscraper to spawn a tiny polkadotted volkswagon beetle is totally normal.

Your dreams are incredible, :D, I'm kinda jealous. I love the creature you've you and your dream have come up with, and errrrg what a scary affliction, and it sounds real painful. And as always, you are just a constant amazement with your art ; ;

I think the very fact you can draw a creature from your dreams and bring it to life is am astounding feat in itself, never could do that myself. I like the idea of this as it is truly original as I can say never seen anything quite like it before now, as an anthro shark "sark" or otherwise. I think the idea of instant X ray readings is something that could be useful if made though it is sad this creature was terminally ill in the first place. I am still think it a great image whatever background it has, it is unique and very interesting, well done. :) :thumbsup:

That sounds relly weird XD mine tonight had something to do with a snake that ate me, some Sergeant that comes into subway all the time, and me stealing food. But it's okay because I was being mind controlled. Something about a bathroom.

You have very interesting dreams Shin.
Quite jealous because my dreams aren't ever really that exciting.

The pic itself is lovely, of course, have I ever told you how much I adore your painterly style? ;A;
The shading is really hard edged, but at the same time really soft and just blendy. Hooowww?

Great work. C:

The head and tail are awesome, things dreams can do to you :) I like the colors it has as well!

Gail will look awesome no matter what you do haha, I hope you don't get frustrated drawing him. I've been told he's a complicated character to draw ^^;

:iconshinerai:
Shinerai Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! cx And no, I am not frustrated at all drawing him!! I simplified his scales a lot and I have most of his stuff down other than his stripes.

The reason I am taking a break is that I tend to just get really tired of drawing the same thing, and when I do that, I tend to start kinda halfassing it (like I did everything below the waist in this picture). And I didn't want to do that to Galidor because I want him to be very nice. And so that's why I took a break. I'll be working on him for the rest of this evening, however, and I'll be streaming if you get a chance to come by cx

Welcome! I'm glad to hear that hehe :hug: you draw scales really well :)

It happens to me too, but I'm a hurry-drawing person , meaning I tend to be impatient and hurry up to finish a drawing in few days. If I had more patience, my drawings would look better, so I'm working on doing what you are doing haha. I'll try to join you in the stream, but I still can't chat :(

It makes me happy to know you are having fun drawing my dragon, I've always wanted to see how he'd look in your style!

I really love how you shaded that fur though, the way it just sort of gets detailed in all the important places, instead of trying to cover every inch in chunks of floof.

The tail was flesh and bood and completely movable, but for some reason it seems to have been "worn" by tying that ribbon around the waist.
