Dreaming Reality by Catalin-Geani Dreaming Reality by Catalin-Geani
Hello everyone,

First of all sorry for inactivity lately, I was kinda in an "art block"..though I'm not really an artist, but I just couldn't make anything new. And thank you for all favs that I didn't reply to.

Now about the image....it all started with an huge desire to make a new wallpaper but everything I tried couldn't satisfy me. But then I had a talk with a few friends on the theme "reality is an illusion" that gave me an idea. The idea was something with a big spiral galaxy in the middle from an angle view..i did the galaxy part but when i tried to make the background this came out and I just loved it this way.

The face wasn't intended it just came out but is amazing how the nebula thing looks like a face with brain exploding :laughing:

Used : Apophysis and Photoshop

Great thing for space art inspiration and working on space art: [link]


Regards.

Why do you say you're not an artist? Although this is just supposed to be a wallpaper, the inspiring title and the magnificent look allow people to interprete the overall deviatation into a deeper symbolical sense. And because I and several others can do this, you are automatically an artist.

The reason I say I'm not an real artist is because I still have a lot to learn before I can call myself an artist. Look at the awesome artist around dA, my work can't even start to compare with them. Still like you said my work can still be considered art, and it is a form of art, and I'm really glad that there are people that can see the deeper symbolical sense I try to put in all my works. But I still have a lot to learn and all I can call myself is an beginner artist. There is a difference between an artist and an beginner. Hope one day I will reach that level when i an be called an artist, though I do this only from passion and because is relaxing to do it.

It may sound new to you, but I've decided to take a look on your work, and I must say that your deviatations are extraordinarily well made and very realistic looking. They don't make you look like a beginner, rather extremely close to a professional, if I'm honest. I wish my skills were as good :)

Thank you again :)
Indeed I try my best when I make every piece, and I'm more than glad that you don't see me as a beginner. But I always compare myself with the awesome artist around here and I see where is my .."skill"...and how much I still have to learn. This is why I consider myself a beginner but it also push me to better next time :). I also took a look on your gallery and I must say that you are not that far from me as you say, in fact we are pretty close, just different techniques, and you are also improving.

if I wouldn't know I'd say it's a picture from NASA or something, it has a very realistic feel. and just as amazing is the title (probably one of the greatest thing I've ever heard). awesome ! :D

In all my works I try to keep an realistic feel, sadly not in all I succeed but in this one I can agree with you, it kinda has that feeling.

Stunning in every aspect. This kind of piece is what I've been wanting.

Very well done mate.

I'd give 10 out of 10.

I know it is a little shiny, on the screen I created was a bit darker but most of PC and laptop monitors have a little different contrast range that the screen I worked on.
