Supplementary text: Q: You find 15 dollars in the middle of the street. Do you (a) Keep it - it's only $15 anyway; (b) Spend it; (c) Think to yourself "It might not seem like much, but it's not money I earned, nor was it given to me intentionally, so I have no right to take it. I hope the owner gets it back."

Some may find this ridiculous these days, but I have chosen (c). I respect that many will disagree, and, although I find that a saddening fact, you are entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine. I suggest you simply live and let live. I will still believe in what's right, and what we have should be earned, not found and taken from someone else, even if we may never even see who that someone else is. Many will say that life isn't fair, and that's just a fact we have to deal with. But life is what we make it. The world is what we make it. And I'm just trying to do my part to make it a little better.

"Dreamscape" Artist's Description:

I was sitting here thinking about it, and I realized my motivation for creating this piece is actually pretty...stupid. I had made two new pieces, Marvel, and I Drop Gems, and I wanted to share them with my FB friends. But I've got this thing about even and odd numbers: I could not just upload two new pictures, I needed three. Seriously. So I made Dreamscape up in a hour or so and called it good. I'm so weird.

This piece is named Dreamscape after the 009 Sound System song/music of the same name. I was feeling very techno trance yesterday and was listening to all sorts of cool music of the like.

I haven't decided if I want to offer this as a wallpaper pack yet. I was thinking about it, but I don't know if it's good enough. I am kind of lazy, I don't often fix my mistakes. I really wish I had been able to create a better perspective, a little more reality. Still learning.

The guts of this piece are made up of a lot of brushing, some of my own cloud textures, some teeny tiny asteroids made in the free 3D program Bryce, and some handy dandy standard Photoshop filters. Oh, and adjustment layers. I am hopelessly addicted to adjustment layers...

Anyway, I hope you like. And if not, that's cool too. I like it :)
Much love :dalove:

Aha! I know of Dreamscape. Great music, good stuff. Quite a lovely title too, if I may say so myself^^

This is nothing short of just breathtaking. I am just so amazed by what you create; this could never have taken me
even a day. The smooth flow of the protomaterial body around its hub is impressive; such a large entity is difficult to capture
in all its glory. I love how you used the lights with the blues; everything is just so amazing! :heart:

Definitely one of my favourites.
