EDIT 2: ASGFHDKSH I got into the artbook! :iconzoomoutplz: This means so happy to me!!! Thank you so much!
EDIT: I GOT A DD *heavy breathing* IS THIS REAL. :iconsobbplz: I'm flipping out ASDGSHKAF. Thank you so much scarlett for suggesting this! ;v;


Title: Fantasies of a child
Theme: Dream of imagination
For :icondreamincolorartbook:

So I think that most children always have such creative minds. When we start growing up people tell us face reality and deal with life. We are told to stop daydreaming. We eventually sort of lose our dreams and hopes because we are told it won't happen. But sometimes children don't lose their dreams and end up changing things. The dreamed of the impossible and made it possible. So this picture is to demonstrate the creative and hopeful minds of children. I hope they will dream on.
The fish depicted above are butterfly koi <3333
It was really fun but trying to get the shapes right took me a few hours. The concept was a bit hard to come up with but the painting part was really fun. The painting took somewhere around 10+ hours and the sketches and concept about 3 hours.

I'm not sure how the kid dreaming this would experience it. I mean, it is a HUGE goldfish.
But whatever the case, the artwork is fan-tas-tic!
