Dreamcatcher 2.1

Okay, so I recently took a little hike through my beloved gallery, and I wasn't too pleased with me, I have to say. Some of my older works are so butchered that I'd just like to burn them, but I had a better idea. Why not redraw them? The one that irked me most was the picture 'Dreamcatcher'. So I sat myself down and recapped the essential idea of the thing: A deity impersonating the spirit of the dreamcatcher. The dreamcatchers' lies in North America, where the Lakota tribe believed the net to have an effect on people's dreams. On account of a few people telling me I had missed some information in my former description (thanks for that, btw), I looked it up again and found two different versions: Either the bad dreams slip through the hole in the centre while the good pass trough the net, or the bad dreams get entangled in the web and are encased in the gems, until the sun rises and destroys them. Which is the version I decided to go with, hence the sunrise in the background. Now, for the artistic value: I LOVE THIS! If you compare this with the old version, you may finally consider me a developping artist! *g* I love the body and pose, a true improvement, and also the basic idea of the background. I'm also very proud of the deity's coloring, since this is the first time I've been able to put some depth into my digital coloring. The only thing I don't like too much is the color of the background, because I couldn't seem to blend the colors into each other, making them look choppy and unnatural. Oh, and the lightning in her hair is -so- out of place it makes me want to scream. But still, considering my computer coloring skills, pretty nice. And if anybody tries to criticise something other than the colors, they're dead meat. ^_~ Whew. Looong description. ^^' Anyway, although I've come to despise the old version of this pic, I'm still gonna leave it up for reference. Go compare! ^~
