Just a dream. Just a fantazy. Just for fun. Thank you for June 2021 Proko Challenge. It's so wonderful to fulfil our dreams through the art. P.S. please look at my artwork in the original, because there are a lot of dead pixels on preview.
I had so much fun with this challenge! The poster is based on a poem I wrote a couple years back, called Miracle. Here it is for anyone who's curious: --- Rainless clouds, long unsupported, press the horizons together. The troughs that I carved with once fearless fingers into the brick-baked bedrock level out into flatness behind me. Blood breaks from the split fingernails touches the soil sizzles to steam. Far ahead where all cracks converge rises a new column of light shimmers turns into a beacon. But not its beguilement as much as the scatter of rock, coils me forward digging into my calves like so many bug bites. On approach it shrinks to a flame and I, I watch the bush burn wait and wait and wait - for a voice, or a forefinger, - well after cooled ashes creep into my nose, under my eyelids; all I hear is static. I must kneel to bury it. --- The rest of the elements are connected to my home country, Bulgaria, my love for fantasy and my main occupation - pharmacy. I had a lot of fun painting all of the clothing, but the title was super difficult to come up with and format, since I have little experience with typography and design work.
OK this is it I'm done now :P This is inspired by the movie posters for 'Loving Vincent', Studio Ghibli films and a bit of Alice in Wonderland. Influenced a bit by the watercolour artist Thomas Schaller. Aiming for a kind of whimsical vibe. I would say I spend most of my time in my imagination than anything else - and trying to paint clouds because they are hard :P Painted with watercolour paint. Please feel free to critique it!
Hi! I love all the artworks you've made, there's a lot of creativity in your ideas and it's a pleasure to see them all! Here's my entry. It's the poster for a light drama movie, about a little girl that got used to living in her dark imaginary world with her teddies out of fear of the real one. Going camping with scouts is what's going to give her the courage to open up to the real world and let the light come in. Scouts and camping has given me so much, I'd never be thankful enough. It bought me closer to nature, to people and even to my true self. As I live in Britany, and I'm half Irish and half Breton, I wanted to include dolmens and menhirs, because they have so much history and mean a lot to my region :) (I have the painting in higher quality but I made it smaller to be able to send it)
Hi! This challenge seems really exciting, thanks for hosting it! I was wondering how many artworks can we submit per participant?
