It's partly a dream, partly an illustration for my old story. The girl is me, the leopard is my imaginary friend, the place is called the Shelter, and there's always time before the storm, but the storm itself can't break out properly. The building is Space Distortion Generator, hidden in ancient maya ruins. Despite the gloominess it's a nice, mostly safe place.
PS: I know that maya ruins means jaguars, not leopards. In real world. But my Blave is a leopard and a)he doesn't live there, just visiting; b) he doesn't really care about geography anyway.

UPD: thanks for Mods Choice! :) I'm so flattered!

It’s an extraordinarily interesting concept and a very nice illustration. I would like to hear more of the story 2

:-) Christine 'The One' Leonova replies: "Thanks 1 Well, the story itself’s not that exciting. In short it’s about how the bunch of secondary characters saved several worlds and didn’t even invite me 1"

Leopard? if its set in Maya ruins it would be in south or central america. Shouldn’t it be a jaguar then? Other than that great pic.

:-) Christine 'The One' Leonova replies: "Oh, I know where Maya ruins are, and I know the difference between jaguars and leopards. This one is a leopard. He just... travels a lot. 2 And thanks for comment"

Amazing picture... makes you sit and watch it for a while and stay in the dream... like traveling for a bit. 2 It’s beautiful, detailed and colourful, while still dark. Thanx for sharing such nice art with us!

This is amazing. Especially the effects above the Space Distortion Generator!
are those... bubbles that I see in the foreground?

:-) Christine 'The One' Leonova replies: "Thanks!
Yes, those are bubbles... they look kinda random, I know 1 I was just learning how to draw magic bubbles and planned to delete them from the canvas, but they turned out so cute that I decided to let them stay. "

Its amazing what we dream then turn into art. I really like looking at this picture and like Marika says I want to sit and watch it for a while. Beautiful work.
