Very interesting. I'm curious how lucid the dream was; or rather, how much detail you had to add on post-consciousness to make it perceivable.

Thanks! The memory of the landscape exploding was very vivid and distrubing and I still remember it even though it was at the beginning of 2000. Of course painting it, probably froze the memory in my head. The characters weren't so specific in the dream however, and I elaborated on them.

Must have been a weird but awesome dream. I have had at least two dreams that inspired me to come up with a story of some sort, and one of them I can actually make a full story out of. The other one I would prefer to be a novel, but I don't have it all figured out yet, especially since it was a dream I had when I was like six or seven so I don't remember everything about it (thankfully I remember at least a few key points though). I'm curious though: what's with the girl and the multi-headed robot?

My first comment was gonna be: "wow, this is trippy as". Then i read the artist comment and I can understand now.
I love dreams and how flipped out they can be, last night i was bein chased by the hulk, kinda freaky.
Great work, your attention to detail is fantastic!

I wish I had dreams like you.

The two characters are cool, I like the body section on the robot and th hand on the woman, also how it looks like shes pulling the robot away from the scene. The ground blowing up is cool too, almost like a super violent gyeser.
