I decided to go with a surrealism theme. I am fascinated by faces and expressions more than anything else so a lot of my art revolves around eyes. I am a fan of surrealism mostly because of the random dreamlike quality that i portrays. I decided because of this I should probably base my design form a dream I had couple days ago. Each of these creatures played some role in my dream, and I at some point or another had control over their bodies (basically I was them for short periods of time). I did have a main creature who was essentially dream me, and she would be the one in the middle. It was a very complex dream and I will not detail it all here since it was to long. I think that I captured the basic elements of it though, and it was fairly fun to paint. I think I’m getting a bit better with the camera, though the lens flare is still evident at the top of the head.
