This image was inspired by a dream i had a week ago, the image shows the clearest thing i remember.
A bright light filled the sky and smoke swept through the city...i then had a close up of a guy, not sure if it was supposed to be me or not but i watched in the reflection of his goggles as the figures grew and disintergrated, then suddenly everything started to break apart and slowly float away in the wind.


not entirely sure what is means but ive got my own thoughts on that.

anyway i hope you like it

06-28-2003, 02:19 AM
you had a dream of 911, and a weird guy came up protecting himself from anthrax.

06-28-2003, 02:20 AM
its good though :thumbsup:

06-28-2003, 02:24 AM
:eek: maybe your right ...didnt see it like that..but it seems to fit...hmm

06-28-2003, 02:30 AM
Wow, that is some beautifull work man! Congrats :D!
I Think the dream has seomthing to do with popcorn. But then again, I think alot of things have to do with popcorn. Everytime I have weird dreams like that, I wake up and feel like eatin some popcorn...perhaps thats just me, but keep up that work, friggen Bad Ass!


06-28-2003, 10:19 AM
i love it too...the whole thing, city and that broking glass....wow!!

06-28-2003, 11:05 AM
its very good, but maybe the broken glasses should be less broken..?


06-28-2003, 12:39 PM
I love the Reflection of the ppl on the right eye..!
very good..:applause:

06-28-2003, 09:11 PM
thanks for comments people... much appreciated:)

06-28-2003, 09:53 PM
AMAZING!!!! It has a Dali touch to it. Reminds me of his paintng . Watches At moment when they break or something like that (cant remember te name.

06-28-2003, 10:06 PM
great work, excellent detail

06-28-2003, 11:32 PM
the only thing that strikes me weird is the eye. i would figure it little more open or strained. if this is all going on around this person, i think they would be more scared. he/she looks to calm... but that's just me.

but very nice. reminds me of Pink Floyd : The Wall.

06-29-2003, 12:05 AM
Cool Reminds me of Terminator II

I can't find any problems myself becuase the picture is quite styleized and I like it.

06-29-2003, 12:06 AM
You had a dream about the movie 28 Days Later and that's Manchester ablaze behind you.

06-29-2003, 12:10 AM
And it reminds me somehow about WTC....
This smoke in the city....

Anyway, there is something very deep in that picture...

06-29-2003, 12:14 AM
wow.... very nice.

I agree with DSedov about Dali. A deffinite hint of his style.

06-29-2003, 12:16 AM
That is one disturbing image and dream... I guess we all grew up being promised the end of the world, let's just hope we don't get it.

Very well executed. Well done.

06-29-2003, 12:22 AM
I guess we all grew up being promised the end of the world
sure whatever lights your candle


nice painting, I can never remember stuff from my dreams, only in a slight deja-vous kinda way

It definetly reminded me of seeing smoke like that thrrugh new york

and I can see why people think it has dali style :)


06-29-2003, 12:26 AM
hehe, i guess you never read Englands Dreaming.

06-29-2003, 12:28 AM
Great image.

06-29-2003, 12:35 AM

when i saw it , i just thought about a meteor disaster and a nuclear war. weird ....

its great art tho! nice job

06-29-2003, 12:36 AM
looks to me like you're dreaming of half life 2 :surprised

cool stuff.

06-29-2003, 01:17 AM
its beautiful i really like it, lot of emotion in it, great work

06-29-2003, 02:02 AM
Very intersting dream , I like the image to ! :thumbsup:

I would tend to agree, but my first thought was that the person gave up, was accepting the inevitable, or had allready died :cry:

If only dreams could be recorded :wise:
Great piece, makes you think :thumbsup:

06-29-2003, 02:53 AM
to the artist: this is a very good picture! the best thing with dreams is that they are so perfect. they speak of most scary things in a very clear voice. they don't hold back or leave important details away. of course we cannot understand anything but it is a great thing in life even if it scares us.

opacity- you should take a look at 'project brainstorm', a movie with christopher walken. in some parts it was the father or mother of catharyne bigelows 'strange days'. these films are talking about recording of feelings and impressions. sorry but these movies don't contain recording of dreams, but you might like it anyway!

06-29-2003, 03:19 AM
Love the pic, not shure what it is about it, but that is one of the pic I save to my pic folder for rotating through my desktop. Love it.

On a side note, If I drew my dreams I would probably be taken away :)

06-29-2003, 03:51 AM
Girn26 will u be me shink for my dreams too? if i pant u a image.

nice coloring, contrast, would go good in my Air Pollution director 8 multimeida exe for students.

06-29-2003, 04:15 AM
Very nice image, speaks very loudly, but I can't help but think a tear or something would really push emotional buttons on this piece, I think it would take it to another level. But then again that probably wasn't in your dream :)

In my dreams I'm always running from danger :hmm:


06-29-2003, 04:42 AM
dispite what hidden meaning it may or maynot have, its a cool painting. the reflection of the two guys looks creepy but the broken glass doesn't look quite right to me. maybe some more bigger chunks.

I'm gonna disagree with that. He looks surprised, wondering, and possibly in fear of what is in front of him as it is. We cry in reflection, not in the moment. (Of whatever is happening in this scene.)

Good work, I really like the dust/debris moving through the city. I don't think we've ever seen smoke of that scale moving through a city, other than in Oklahoma City and in New York City. Even when buildings are demolished properly, 100% of all objects that create debris are stripped out of the structure first, so there isn't that much dust and debris to spread around, as what happened with the towers.

06-29-2003, 05:24 AM
Strong because of the juxtaposition of realworld (another 9-11) and dreamlike (loss of gravity, people made of paper) imagery. Although I always thought of 9-11-style destruction as science fiction before it happened. Scary.

06-29-2003, 06:19 AM
man, that is savagely cool... are u a professional painter?? This is something I would expect to see in a museum.... man, .... wow.

06-29-2003, 06:31 AM
Great reproduction of your dream. It could be the next big war?

06-29-2003, 06:34 AM
Definately like the image...It pushes the disturbed button inside of me. :sad:
When this happens, I usually use humor to balance out the negative emotion. It reminds me of what happens after Godzilla eats a Taco Bell restuarant.:D

06-29-2003, 06:40 AM
So that's how Harry Potter got his scar!

(very nice!)

06-29-2003, 08:14 AM
Beautiful work indeed...
Hits me like a shockwave shot out of a near nuclear blast. :) :buttrock:
Great work, and makes you think a lot about the world.

IMO the image has that typical "fallout" feeling, maybe because of the design of the respirator, a bit of a 1960's sci-fi vision.
The man's head falling apart reminds me of a Dali painting he painted after he saw an A-bomb explosion, or he heard about it - not sure of that....

Just one bit of critics: The man's right eye looks a bit wierd, there is a brihter ring in the iris soruonding the pupil....
Still, it's a professional painting... congartulations! :thumbsup:
I really wish I could remember my dreams....

06-29-2003, 08:21 AM
dude, ive seen yourstuff at DA... gotta love it!!!!
youve done so many of these awesome paintings its like you spend every day painting or are you just super quick!?

06-29-2003, 08:33 AM
Good thing we have 9/11 so that everything that involves destruction and 'bad people' now finally have a name.

06-29-2003, 08:34 AM
I really like the painting. I often get inspired to put my dreams into artworks but rarely ever do. It truely is an image with hidden messages to make you think. :thumbsup: :applause:

06-29-2003, 08:35 AM
i don't how to exactly express what i would say (sorry for my poor english)

but woooo, what an inspiring story/experiment!!,
i looooooooove the mood and the scene

once, my doctor told me that in his long life, i had known 5 major and important dreams!
He described one of these for me and
yours is one of these dreams you have NOT to forget !!! :thumbsup:

"VERY STRANGE" <<< no you're a genious ^^

it's one of my favourite stills in the cgtalk's collection :love:

keep it up, and keep dreaming !!! :applause:


06-29-2003, 09:00 AM
wow!! the things on ur homepage is like :thumbsup:

06-29-2003, 10:45 AM
Your work very contain sense of vision pound at the dint, very great.

:thumbsup: :beer:

06-29-2003, 11:55 AM
great work man :buttrock: only the huge difference in size of the small buildings left of the Bridge and the skyscrapers looks a little strange

Good thing we have 9/11 so that everything that involves destruction and 'bad people' now finally have a name.

as i can remember there was something "little" in HIROSHIMA many Years ago :annoyed:

06-29-2003, 12:55 PM
Image is awesome :buttrock:

Just my 2 cents but in your dream it looks like your one of the guys wearing the mask's since you said you watched the reflection in his googles.

So its evidient that you are some how responsible for or responding to the tradegd that has just befallen upon you.

Regardless this is defintely eye candy.

06-29-2003, 04:18 PM
:eek: thankyou people for all the cool comments:)

06-29-2003, 04:59 PM
overall feel of the painting is very nice....
technically well done...

but the ellipses of the mask should be revisited (right lower corner)...they aren't right...

Great Picture! I love the color tones and all the details in the broken glass, maybe a background with more blue have produce more contrast. Good Job :buttrock:

06-29-2003, 06:01 PM
Checked out your site also and found even more great work!
Definately worth looking at!:thumbsup:

06-29-2003, 07:10 PM
Love it. Very surreal mood for sure.

06-29-2003, 07:25 PM
for some reason im reminded of something written by ecclesiates (probably butchered the spelling) "I came and saw under the sun that the race was not to the swift. Nor the battle to the strong. Neither yet bread to the wise nor wisdom to men of understanding but time and chance happeneth to them all." I might of missed out some lines but you get the idea

I also agree that a tear would not enhance the feel of the pic, the eye wide open give a sense of aww and a sureall feel to the pic.

06-29-2003, 07:34 PM
Saw this on your site first...Great job as always, Keep up the great work:D

Yeah, as I remember, it was them getting their butts kicked for doing us dirty and cowardly ambushing us at Pearl Harbor. Then again, I wouldn't remember because I'm only 21, so you tell me what happened on December 7th 1941.

I second that.

06-30-2003, 02:30 AM
This is just the perfect image. Period.

How your dream is percieved and your execution in the form of art, is simply brilliant. The way you tell us a thousands stories in this image is unbelievable.

I can't wait to see more work from you. *me goes and updates his bookmarks*

06-30-2003, 03:01 AM
Beautiful color & Sunlightings.........!

06-30-2003, 04:10 AM

06-30-2003, 02:49 PM
Very well done, although i agree about the eye that should me more closed?...he seems to be in a pretty scary situation.

And lildragon, when i have those kinda dreams...i just turn around to those things/people and ask them what the f00k they want from me, most of the time the creatures turn into little small girls in my dreams when im waiting for an answer :D

06-30-2003, 03:29 PM
Great work.

06-30-2003, 04:15 PM
Freaky stuff man, rang a chord with my own memorys.
I had a dream about pure destruction a week ago as well. I was telling some freinds about a guy sitting on a rock with stormy eyes and the whole world ripping apart behind him. he was rather gleefull about it. Kinda scary, but I think there are some folks that would enjoy anarchy.
A lot of us are probably sub-consiously aware of the current state of the world. More so than ever with the constant news stations compediting for viewers.
I really like the eyes and the fragments. Good expressive piece.

great job

06-30-2003, 06:14 PM
Yo buddy...

Stop smoking that shit.

Nice work though


06-30-2003, 06:17 PM
I wanted to recreate my dream in LW, but quit when I found it extremely difficult to model Carmen Electra and Shakira.


06-30-2003, 08:10 PM
Thats some nice work.. though I think u should have done the background area a bit better. May be adding a few more details..
:thumbsup: Good work!

06-30-2003, 10:04 PM
Hmm I think your site is down, I can't see it. I'd really like to see it :shrug:

06-30-2003, 10:42 PM
mysite hasnt gone down...try right clicking and do "show image" that might help:)

06-30-2003, 10:45 PM
Hey it works now! I am sorry, I couldn't see it a couple of minutes ago.
Woa that was one kickass dream you had there! It looks very psychedelic. Funny though, I never see faces in my dreams....never....
Great work and sorry for that.

07-30-2003, 05:19 AM
Nice work!:beer:

07-30-2003, 10:40 AM
neat that you painted something that you dreamt of, I tend to remember but lose interest when I think too much about it. anyway, I recently saw this chinese movie called Legend of Zu, it has a shot of this chick that disentergrates like your painting, cool stuff, I believe they use maya for the effect. The fiery dudes reflecting off his glasses reminded me of Nausicaas God warriors who destroyed the world...hMm well I like finding stuff in peoples work like that. hehe.
Keep up the good work! which reminds me to start some :buttrock:
