Thanks, I get the same feeling when I look at other pieces out there and then I also think fuck it, that's too much work. 200 hours for an art piece is already killing me. With a busy life that's like..4 months, god damn.   I can't work with oils cuz I just end up smudging them but now what I do is I add the oil after I'm done the area more or less. The oils make them shine and pop. Prussian blue oil paint is like staring in a black hole, it's so dark. It makes THE best black I have found.  Just keep trying a little harder each time man.

I just shared your image along with links to your print shop and gallery page on several subreddits, as well as bought a print myself! I love this illustration, and I hope you see some return on it. :)

ahh why thank you so much!

The return is in the comments, I care more about what people have to say but the money is a bonus. ;)

Hook me up with some links, I'd like to read what people are saying.

Thanks! I gotta get on top of this print thing. Deviant art is messed up and fineartamerica needs my updated colour edit.

Where did you order the print from and when? Im getting no emails about it. Deviantart is being screwy. A friend of mine ordered one before but never got it! I'm gonna email them.

I found this gem from Dullface's reddit post. I'd love to have it on my wall! I tried ordering a framed canvas print and received this error message:



There was an error in your submission.

We're sorry. We were unable to process your payment. Please review the list of possible reasons below.
The billing street address does not match the bank's records
The billing zip code does not match the bank's records
The order has been flagged as possibly fraudulent for your protection
The account does not have sufficient funds to process the order
The Security Code does not match the bank's records for this account

I re-entered my information twice, so I know that it's not an error on my part. Do you know what's up with your account SteveGriffith? Sounds like something is definitely screwy... Anyway, this is absolutely gorgeous. Help me get it on my wall!

Something screwy, I gotta remember to email them tonight. I prefer to direct people to my fineartamerica print but it needs an updated version, I tweaked the colours, I made them too bright.

Thanks for your interest, i'll get back to you on this. :)

DMT, yep.

At funerals people drop flowers on the coffin / body of the person. I guess the white is to symbolize going to a place of purity. The guy is dieing in this picture, which is why he is so pale and white skinned.

Wow. I have no words for this. I've always wanted to do a dreaming thing. The abstract light lights, waves and patterns work so well in this just glorious mood. Sometimes dreams are just so beyond our ordinary experience in indescribable ways. You have alluded to this beautifully.
