Tangled Mind, Phantom Pains by Qissus Tangled Mind, Phantom Pains by Qissus
Depiction of my dreams. I've dreamt of getting stabbed, shot etc. and actually feeling the sensation. It's truly bizarre of your mind to convince you that you're in pain when there isn't any.

Haunting. I'm glad I only dream of punching others and ending with waking up because I hit my bedpost. ;) (Wink)
But the fear and the pain are real, sometimes I wonder if our dreams tell us about things we ignore when we are awake.
As a child I often dreamt about explosions, although I never saw one happen in reality. But on the emotional state the feeling of loosing control was real.

I really hope you can make your peace with this kind of dream and turn it into something beautiful as this piece. Amazing work, I love the little golden twigs and ropes in the background. Even if the piece gives me goosebumps, it's nice to know the knots are not yet made and there is hope to escape.

So intense. I had a dream I was suffocating in a black lake, I couldnt move and breath..and I woke up suddenly from a dream catching my breath..it really scared me, what if my mind could kill me in a dream by simply not waking up to catch that breath.

Ah, my dreams are very vivid as well. The one that is most recent had me as some sort of mer-creature and I woke up feeling like I'd forgotten how to be human and had to relearn it. As I'd been brushing my teeth my whole body was swaying as if still in the ocean...

I'm glad you were able to share this piece of your dreams.

Ok so i saw this a little while back and instantly faved... But looking at it again and again... Genius! Ive never seen such an elegant way of painting hair. Its so mild and flat and looks like paper almost, yet profoundly accentuates the face so beautifully rendered.

I've felt the same in my dreams too -same with feeling that you're actually drowning, or hugging someone. Sometimes, I also dream of being stabbed for example, and I can feel the blade going all the way through my flesh, but without any pain, which is kinda bizarre too ^^ My roommate also dreamt once that she'd been severely wounded, but she remained conscious and she was very interested in observing her wound, testing its depth and width with her fingers etc ^^
Dreams are such a deep, interesting and mysterious topic!

Beautiful work, by the way :)
