End of the Dream by TGA-Tsurugi
End of the Dream

"As much as it hurts, 

Ain’t it wonderful to feel? 
So go on and break your wings 
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds 
As we run towards the end of the dream"

Hey all! Finally getting around to posting :iconurb3th:'s commission! She asked me to draw her beautiful characters, Ran (girl in purple) and Kajin and they were so much fun to draw. They had a wonderful elaborate story that mostly took place in a dream while their characters were really in these comatose dream states, and I wanted to draw the end of that, or them coming back to reality, essentially led by a light. To me, the end of a dream isn't always a bad thing. Sure, while a dream can be beautiful it's also a sort of artifice, or a lie and sometimes coming back to a reality that's just as good is okay, and it's needed. Reality can be much more honest and that honesty can open lots of new doors for growth that an idyllic dream maybe could not have. 

Just something I've been thinking about. :) :star:

Thanks for looking! More art to come!

Materials: Copic sketch markers, Copic Airbrush kit (for background), white gel pen for sparkles :star: :star: :star:

Why must we fall apart to understand how to fly?

Highway Unicorn by TGA-Tsurugi

Also, I wanted to take a moment to tell you guys I am going to be part of the DayDream-Artbook project!


It's a charity project aiming to raise money for a charity called Outreach International. 100% of proceeds will be donated to this charity. :) Here's a little bit about the charity from the DayDream-Artbook page:

Outreach International is a charity that aims to end extreme poverty around the earth by providing sustainable resources to impoverished communities. Its key investment is not in projects; it’s in the people of those countries. The charity’s uses a nine-step process called the Participatory Human Development Process (or PHDP) in order to maximize its impact. Its staff will spend months or years to integrate into the communities and to gain the trust of the people within these communities. Then, they will work together with the people to create and work on projects that will have a long-lasting effect on each community.
Learn more about the charity here:

A big theme in this artbook is thankfulness and we are to use that theme to inspire our illustrations. My theme is "Thankful for the Subconscious" and I can't wait to create my piece that illustrates, and for you all to see it through in the book!
I'm really looking forward to contributing to this project. There are so many amazing artists that are part of it and the cause sounds wonderful so I strongly encourage you all to check out the charity & the artbook as well! :heart: Give them a +watch and spread the word. :dance:
