I guess getting chased is a common theme in kids' dreams. I had one where a bald cannibal with sharpened teeth chased me down a mountain of skulls. Then there was the one where I was in a destroyed city being chased by an enormous blob.
Thanks, I remember getting my hands on some Cryla stuff, but it was really expensive, great to use, but way too much for what it was worth. System 3 and Galeria is quite good, I just use anything really, it's all the same, and it's quite cheap. Brands don't really make a difference. I realised that when I visited a few artist's studios and saw them paint away, some even used kid's paints, whatever does the job really. I guess Cryla is good for really thick, opaque stuff. I have real problems with the opacity of yellows and have to use a lot of layers of it for a good application, but Cryla yellows stick a lot easier.
The only thing I will say is do NOT use Reeves, it's really shit! It has this plasticy gloss to it that makes things look really cheap. I accidently added some to a new painting of mine, and parts of it are kind of shiny. Horrible stuff, and hard to work with.
Absolutely. Thanks. I don't have much Real experience with acrylic. I am mainly a oils man. I have used acrylics mainly for washy underpainting or in combo with ink or drawing materials. I'm just asking around for some technical tips. Thanks for yours!
I gave up (kind of) on acrylics many yrs ago because I couldn't make it look like anything but plastic art. Since then I have seen people do fantastic things with them. I think the quality of acrylic paints has improved since then, but I have yet to take adantage of them. Mine still looks like plastic.
yes! Woods esepcially! I had a dream I was upstairs in my bedroom and heard banging downstairs in the house, when I knew no one was inside. Ran down stairs and saw the door swaying slightly like someone had just ran out, ran to look for them and no one was around. (I used to get really scared when no one was in a dream but me). Ran into the woods near my house and came across an abandoned house with a wooden roof and glass walls, it was quite wide, so you couldn't see inside, it was pitch black, then hands started pressing against the glass from the darkness. That was a very scary dream.
Bulging eyes and floating heads really scare me.
In one dream we also had a visitor to the house and he was sat on a chair that started floating, then his body fell apart and the pieces were spinning around the room until everything dissapeared but his shoes.
this is great! lately i seem to be dreaming about my fish dying pretty often. i think the sound of the pump in the tank must get into my head.. i really have to try some drawings of some of my dreams sometime. it looks so fun!
Thanks! Sure, it's several different ones pieced together. I had a one about a prisoner with no skin, running but never gaining any distance, a floating green giraffes head outside my bedroom window, and being forced to watch someone cut their own eyes out.
Haha, they were terrifying! My dreams are very dull in comparison now, I don't really suffer nightmares anymore.
Haha, they sound really farfetched, but I'll have to draw some of them as comics. The worst was everyone was being taken over my a parasite and I thought my dad was still ok, but he was one of them too and strangled me until I woke up. There was one in black and white where I was forced to watch people cut their eyes out.
I think not being able to see horror films that I knew about was more damaging then actually watching them. It let my imgination get the better of me and made films seem even worse.
