I absolutely love the colours! Especially that flower, it practically shines. This is a great piece, and very emotional.

This is gorgeous. I love the colors and how his white eyelashes contrast with his dark eyes. He looks very mysterious.

Colourful yet drab at the same time. Beautifully done.

Wow, amazing, but there is no clear the point of light source.

Thanks! Yeah - that was intentional to a certain degree. I was trying to give him a dreamy feel - playing with the light being everywhere. For the most part it is intended to be top right, but there are bursts and backlights from below and on the left as well. Good eye ;)

I love the colors you have for this! It's so easy to do Daniel and Morpheous in monochrome but this is so vibrant. The flower looks very unnaturally exotic and ethereal. A dream flower for the Dream King!

:icondanielgovar:
DanielGovar Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! Yes- I imagined him being the inversion of Morpheus, and if morpheous is an absence of color and light, I envisions a pale, yet vibrant Daniel - glimmering.

Thank you! I wish all of it was traditional, but the edges and hilights are done in PS. The majority of it is watercolor and ink though.
