didn't see the movie :x says
'song or hymn of mourning composed or performed as a memorial to a dead person'

so instead of a requiem for a person that died it is a requiem for a dream that died?

You could say its that Cyanid, but I guess any interpretion will do with such a "vague" theme.

Check out the movie, I think "ultra heavy" is an understatement for describing the movie.

Good old Photoshop, around 45 minutes and most importantly fineliner on copying paper, I can't really draw in Photoshop even with my A4 Wacom O_o

This one is based on the movie 'requiem for a dream' I haven't seen it but from what I read on it was a movie with a sad ending for the drug-addicted main character. Hence this wee scribble.

All the best,

Here is something that is sort of a surreal Dream scene...everything is strange and off kilter. It's supposed to be a pic where things are just strange and weird. I just got painter 8 and I was playing with the Sargent Brush and I just sort of came up with this. It obviously has nothing to do with the movie though but that's fine, and from what I've heard of that's fecked up!

Painter 8/20 minutes/wacom

I'm not creative at all today.. Photo used as reference, and I used the color picker too.. :/
I loved the movie, btw!

Hola, This is my first post so please be kind.

PhotoShop 30minutes, trying to figure out how to post an image 15minutes, showing off some weird artsy crap... priceless.

Pah, still didnt come up with any good ideas.

Drumwhore: Excellent sketch, even with the help you used. Only the right side of the mouth seems a bit weird. Great sketch nevertheless.
Rasdasa: Great surrealistic pic as always.
Balistic: I love it! Great Atmosphere, could be scene right out of the movie. Great subtlety in those brushstrokes!
3db2: Nice sketch, I like the watercolors in it. The only thing that bothers me is the cat. Looks like someone squashed the right side of its head.
