I just wanted to say that I maintain the rights to this piece, but Imagine FX also has the right to publish this piece in their magazine and on their website if I win their contest.
So I know this is for an animation but I couldnt help myself, I had to illustrate this, if anyone needs the city scape or the balloon or whatever I can sort that out.
Hope you guys like it :D
This image was originally about waking up. But what I wanted to put across with it was the idea of dreams and mood. That moment between concious and unconcious when you close your eyes and see colors and images and brief fragments of dreams. The idea for this image came to me in one of those moments, it happens quite a lot when I'm in the image making frame of mind. And then I can't get the image out of my head until I get it down on paper :D
