Artwork Description

Another best peice I think. Hope many will agree with me. This is also done in Ball Point Pens. I used Blue, Black, Yellow, Red and Green coloured ball pens.
This is an attemp to visualize my dream.
One night I dream of a swamp place, so dark and dirty. In my dream it was dawn. Until I saw a tiny seed fall down in the ground and out of it sprouted different coloured roots and merge into one, thus becoming a full grown ordinary flower. Later, I saw it became a beautiful woman standing at the palace gate.
I looked behind and the swamp place is being replaced with a full grown garden.

Such a wonderful picture coming from a wonderful dream. I wish I had your imgination, Arnel. I also liked your homepage very much, why don't you submit your 'Ancient Warfare'? It's beautiful!

What a wonderful dream you had! This is glorious for 5 colors, you achieved great depth and atmosphere, a very moody pic. And nice composition with those vertical elements and the horizontal background. Ballpoint pens are the coolest drawing tools, never thought about colred ones though. Pens just rule, I want to see more of your work!

Ball point? Unusual medium, very well handled. Excellent colour here Arnel and nice lighting too.
