Quando Somnium Incipit Decidet by ConceptualMachina Quando Somnium Incipit Decidet by ConceptualMachina
Now, clenched in his hands a fate unchanging.
This light now dimming, a wish held dying.
A reality to burden the heart.

The fear that gripped, so very familiar.
Walls of hate no embrace could penetrate.
Tears its mortar; no crueler friend indeed.

He cried for council, the answer the same:
Of fools believing in dreams. Mere whispers.
Empty sentiments. Such pretentious tongues.

Care not trivial thrones blinded in sight.
These soulless masses awaiting nothing;
Finite specks existing for their own end.

Self resolve defiant but breakable.
A knowledge ever frail to hidden truth.
Left with hope; a flight no wings could carry.

Now, yielding to encompassing beauty.
Eyes unbound from a dream fading afar,
Into the Love which moves all the heavens.

No, thank you... Your art style and level of detail is a place I want to get to so thank you for helping me set a goal. The amount of work you've done in this is just incredible... I'm still fairly new to digital painting but I'm getting there- School and good peers is helping out a lot but also seeing your product of work is inspiring too... Keep it up..

... Also, are you using one brush type in this or multiple?

Thank u heaps for the kind words! it is always a pleasure to have my work inspire others, so i'm very honoured :D i primarily use 1 brush type (the default one), but i have used other brushes in the past. having custom brushes, etc, can definitely speed up development, but i just like the simpleness and versatility of the main brush. you'll be surprised just how many professional digital artists out there only use 1 brush.

Oh that's so excellent to hear~! Thanks... I was sort of coming to my own conclusion that I wanted to limit the brushes I use but it's definitely reassuring to hear I'm not alone in that :3

hahah, it does look very Final Fantasy end boss like :D i like those kinda designs. but i prefer ones that come together more. some of those designs tend to look like random stuff stuck on together; the individual parts look cool, but together looks very out there and weird...which isn't bad actually.

I want to pick up Yoshitaka Amano's FF sketchbook sometime. Your picture here has been yet another omen: I should buy that book...

ConceptualMachina Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
lol, well he's an awesome artist to begin with, so yeh, why not. i never knew he had a sketchbook available on FF work. i do know he did various artwork for even the series that he never had any direct involvement with (bar the title art). he's got a very distinct style...almost surreal looking at times.
