Dream a Little Dream of... by Imaliea Dream a Little Dream of... by Imaliea
Dedicating this to the great artist Margaret Olley! She was an amazing individual.

EDIT 02/08/11 I finally have up a series of close-ups:

Enjoy!

This took way, way longer than I thought it would. It was really more a painting exercise than anything else :) I tried a few different brushes, switched between Painter & Photoshop, that sort of thing. Just trying to find where I'm comfortable once more. Touching up my skills and whatnot 'til I gots my groove back lol

And yes, it's also another excuse to paint Dean Winchester. >_>

I want to try something original next... but I'm very nervous!! Wish me luck...

I hope you like!

Question: Anyone interest in seeing some close-ups? If so I'll put a few together & upload ^.^



Do not steal my art. It belongs to me, so no thievery or other use without permission. Thanks!

Notes. Screencap refs used for this (srsly there's no way I'm good enough to have painted this with no refs lol)

This is so great! Love it as a study! The only thing that would be an awesome addition is Cas watching him in one of the panels :)

Hello thar! If memory serves... I used a hard round brush in Photoshop for pretty much all of it (for some reason I never could get the hang of using lots of FX brushes, except ones I created myself hahaha). But yeah most of my stuff is a hard edged round brush, set to fade with pen pressure :) hope that helps!

I love this! The only thing it's missing... Dean sleeping uncomfortably in that chair because he was being such a gentleman to Jo letting her take the bed, which she didn't... XD

Dean + sleeping = gorgeousss! :heart:
You really did him justice, with his mouth a little open and the peaceful look on his face!
I also really like the different colors you've used :D

This is amazing! :clap:

omg it's so lovely, such a beautiful dreamy quality, I like that you made the first and last panels warm, they give that lovely feeling of waking up (: I'm also having a fit over the pattern in the sheet in the fourth panel. Beautiful work on the cloth throughout.

This is amazing! I love how soft and real the sheets look in the 4th panel. I also love the third one, that would work really well as an individual painting too, in my opinion! :aww: The contrast of the warm and soft colours really gives this a dreamy and 'sleepy' (in a good way!) feel. Amazing job! :heart:

(And yay, Dean! :lol:)

You are such an incredible artist. (Also, major kudos for loving Supernatural and contributing such beautiful fanart to the fandom. GAH!)

Love it!!! The colors, the poses, and the life-like rendering. I want to giggle and cry all at once looking at these.
