. Light in my Dreams . by The-Nutkase . Light in my Dreams . by The-Nutkase
Been meaning to redraw this one for a while. I've been working with light sources lately as they are one of my weak points (along with backgrounds) so this experiment proved to be a big learning curve for me.

The original:
. light in my dreams . by The-Nutkase

The pose came out a bit static-y for my liking, but I was more focused on the jellyfish and lighting more than anything else. Hopefully the contrast doesn't look odd on other computers- it's probably a bit bright for some screens. xD Hopefully you can see the jellyfish...

If a few people are interested i'll submit the process steps showing how I drew everything (not a tutorial!). c:

Breathtakingly beautiful. It really has magical feel to it. I love all the purple, and how dark the shadows get in the corners. It really suggests a bright light in a dark space.

Wow, thankyou so very much for the kind words! ;-;
Lighting was definitely my main aim when working on this, so to hear your thoughts make me feel like I really accomplished in my efforts. :'D

Haha, personally, I love the little things. Yeah they have the potential to scare and kill, but nonetheless they're pretty nifty, no? xD

I love jellyfish, and yet none of the people I've watched have really done any sort of artwork with them. ;^; This is amazing.

There should be a jellyfish appreciation month so everybody draws them. xD

They are! I went to the beach and a bunch of the tiny tiny ones just floated around us- every time you poked them they lit up!
xD Yes. There shoud.

Wow! They lit up? That's awesome!
We only get the little bean shaped ones that don't glow. :c They're still cool, though.

Occasionally we get bigger ones that look like pies with a little cross on the top floating around in the water. Oh! Like these guys: [link]
