The Impossible Dream by blackbookalpha The Impossible Dream by blackbookalpha
Being an artist, I tend to have child-like dreams. This kid inside me doesn't care about money, recognition, fame, or any materialistic possessions.

All he wants to do is go on an adventure, slay the biggest, baddest bosses around and save cute girls!

Its an impossible dream, but I can always paint it :)

I'll upload a progression tutorial shortly! Stay tuned!

EDIT:

Progression file is here: [link]

Enjoy!

Awesome work on this! I hope you don't take offense to this, but this image reminds me of the video game Dante's Inferno (awesome game, you should play it if you haven't already)

Love this picture. It's so detailed and imaginative while still going in an dreamy, unrealistic style.

An honorable dream indeed. I love the color palate, and the fading of the background into deep space is wonderfully ominous. That little boy is about to rock that boss' world - I imagine explosions will ensue.
