Default August, 2013: Surrealism - Dreamscape

Hi all,

So this month's challenge is to create an image that has no required rules or narrative, but purely conveys a surreal dreamscape in the spirit of artists such as Dali, Magritte or many modern Polish masters of the genre, such as Walkuski, Yerka, or Beksinski.

Imagine your piece to be art direction for a dream sequence in a film, where a character is transported to a surreal world either as a dream... or nightmare.

Good Luck!

edit: winners announced!

Hi, very interesting topic this month, I've never painted typical 100% surrealism so I'll probably try this one. Have a good day and good luck everyone.

Just surreal? Not confirming to any method or style, just our depiction of surreal?

Yes. In the 2D section you can display your digital or traditional work (pencil, acrylics, etc.)!
I hope my answer has enlightened you my friend!

Sounds, like an interesting topic, should start sketching. Tho might be one of the hardest topics so far. Literally Surrealism might be everything (from sci fi world to fantasy to almost abstract and even more). Hopefully I'll make a piece within the subject constrains. Good luck to all !
