Wacom - Bridge to Success by kathemo Wacom - Bridge to Success by kathemo
There were a ridiculous amount of trials and tribulations with this piece involving freezing programs and consequent unsaved progress. ;_;

Wacom "Dreams" contest

The prompt was directed towards dreams of the future or achievements, opposed to dreams and nightmares.

The idea behind this is a self-created bridge to success. The path up the sky (artistic success) is paved with previous work. Each step is renewed by another piece manifested by the ink & brush. The gold-leaf 'sparkles' convey the near magical essence of art: imaginative creation.

I tried to keep it light and whimsical for a soft dreamy effect in general.

OMG, have you check out some of those semi-finalists? I'm kinda shocked in a bad way by a few of the them. XD;;;;
