    Dream Stream

    the new theme will be Dreams and Stream of consiousness speed paintings.

    I want to leave this open to interpritation, so everyone can have as much freedom as possible.

    for dream paintings please include a brief description of the dream, you are interipting, it can be your dream a friends dream, a dream you read, for anyone who does not want to create a image please feel free to share a description of your dreams you would like to see illustrated by another artist.


    stream of consiousness painting is similar to lucid dreaming, these can range from the sureal to the complete abstract. the goal here is to start a painting with no expectations or initial ideas, let the muse and the Id dance together and take over your marks. after a few moments take a look at the abstract shapes and strokes you have laid down and try and pull images and symbols out of them as they appear to you, until you reach a destination you didnt anticipate.


    the inspiration behind this theme comes from the work of an artist named Nivbed!
    his images are sureal masterpices of beauty, Nivbed has generously agereed to help me start off this thread with a few samples of his work to help inspire us all..

    for that those that are farmiliar with his work, taste it agian for the first time.-
    For anyone seeing Nivbed's art for the first time, try to make the most out of this humbeling moment.








    More of Nivbeds work can be seen at www.nivbed.com

    Get Dreaming, and start drawing everyone.


    Sweat dreams

    * the deeper you go within yourself and more honest you are with what you find there, the closer you will come to discovering what exists within us all.*

    i remember having seen nivbed concepts and art a few months ago. i had then completely forgotten to check these works, and i regret it.
    nivbed, your art is fabulous. i especially like that "tear" illustration with the blimps. it fits perfectly within this dream thread, andrew made a perfect choice.

    interesting topic, i'm sure there will be lots of interesting things soon.

    here's my attempt:


    it's a bit of a mixture between both topis: i had the athmosphere of a location of a dream in my mind and listened to the excellent soundtrack of "the crow - city of angels" (thanks sparth )
    the rough idea was there but i trioed to stay as subconcious as possible when painting to achieve that dreamy wishy-washy effect.

    unfortunately, i don't know anything about this dream anymore, just the athmosphere of this space i was in.

    this one was more on the stream side, tho a lot of my dreams look like this. white realistic back, sillhoutes, tron-ish some would say, and no sounds at all in them.

    @andrew - i hope i never have that first dream there....

    @nivbed (if he's listening) - amazing - the car door and the shark/spotlight are totally amazing - i could list more compliments but it would just get boring/redundant - you're awesome

    i hope i can contribute here - i sort of fried my computer on friday night (read: erased everything on it, including, obviously, photoshop), so it might be a while before i get a chance to

    Nivbed- those are some beautiful pieces. Your subtle light diffusion is fantastic. I especially like the dog with the little figures in the tree.

    Interesting topic. I actually dreamed I was electrocuted last night -was not fun. Probably one of my worst dreams ever.





    40 min in painter. 10 in PS.

    Stream of conciousness. Started as test scribble for a modified brush and just grew from there.

    (first post, please let me know if it's a red 'x', thanks)

    Without a soul

    This is an interpretation of a dream I've had ever since I was a little kid. It's the same recurring dream, over and over again. I've probably had the exact same one 7 times now, it's my nightmare.



    Awesome work everyone.

    This thread reminded me...I know I've seen this guy as a child in a nightmare or two. He's come around again recently, hopefully not for long!

    I had a recurring nightmare as a kid of an angry ET face against a black background. He would just sloooooowwwlllyy turn around and look at me with hate in his eyes and i would wake up terrified.

    :realmad:

    I made a couple feeble attempts in painter, but i just cant get it right with a mouse...i guess it will have to wait until i can afford a wacom....

    i had this horrible nightmare last night that my spine at the base of my head ( the atlas bone ) was misaligned , kinda like in scoliosis. I had to go for corrective surgery in the dream and i was so freaked out from the insurance ;;_;;

    probably has to do with he chronic tenseness i have in my back muscles ;_; ( and the night before this i had a dream about programming homework ... yup...my dreams are telling me i should slack off ...)



    kp>awesome piece, very surreal , and i love the "i woke up" bit.

    WOW Sparth, your first one (the floating guy) is awesome!

    KP- clever idea. That image reads like an animation. I love it.

    Here is a figure/ vision that I recall from a recent dream. Might be a little dark. Sorry.

    stream

    not sure if I followed the instructions correctly

    started with scribbeling with fine art 2.0 brushes and paulo's chinese brushes

    interpreted and elaborated some more with fine art 2.0

    it took just over an hour
    My anatomy isn't 100% yet working without references

    I don't know what it means ... or maybe I don't want to know :confused:

    the fragile

    yesterday night 3 o'clock. Listening to the NIN album "and all that could have been". The picture took me more than an hour but it's because I just loved to take my time on it. I wrote a few free moody verses to go with the composition. Obviously this is written in french and I give it to you untranslated in order to let you imagine whatever you want :p
